WHAT IS LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR PROJECT?
The Love Your Neighbor Project is an annual event where the Body of Christ at Friendship, along with other local Churches and followers of Christ, seeks to shine the Light of Christ, proclaim the Gospel, and bless the community through volunteer work projects which help those in need.
How can I be a part of The LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR PROJECT?
Sponsors for The Love Your Neighbor Project are welcome! For the last three years, the projects we have completed include a complete bathroom remodel, replacing mobile home windows and underpinning, sealing a mobile home roof, repairing and painting decks and porches, securing hand-rails for safety, many types of yard work, and various other projects. All of these projects have been sponsored by members of our church, other churches, and local businesses. Local restaurants and groceries have generously provided food for our volunteers. These generous contributors have blessed our community (mostly anonymously) and we are extremely grateful.
If you, your family, or your business, would like to be a part of the Love Your Neighbor Project and would be interested to make a financial or materials contribution, please let us know. You may send all such contributions to:

We need your help locating homes in our community (Ecru, Cairo, Friendship) which may be in need of basic repairs, yard work or clean up, as well as interior cleaning. Our projects target the homes of families that need repairs that for whatever reason have not been able get them taken care of (i.e. expense, illness, etc.). During our LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR PROJECT, these repairs will be made by volunteer teams at no cost to the home owners. While certain jobs may be beyond our abilities and funds may limit the number of jobs, we will consider all requests for assistance.
