Friends Church was founded in October 1977 by a group of faithful people with a God given vision to start a church that would share the hopeful message of the gospel. Friends Church first met in the South Knoll Elementary cafeteria with William Youngkin, Jr., as pastor. On November 13, 1983 we moved to our current location at the corner of Harvey Mitchell Parkway (FM 2818) and Southwood Drive. Over the years Friends has been involved in numerous outreach programs and activities sharing God's love to the Bryan/College Station community. It is our hope and prayer that through Seeking God, Sharing Journeys and Serving Others you will find God's vision through one of the many opportunities available at Friends Congregational Church.
