At North Shore we believe everyone matters to God and that's why in 2008 we were thrilled to begin hosting the Friendship service. Since 2008 Friendship has developed into the fun-filled, snack-fueled ministry with an atmosphere that the people we serve LOVE and want to come back to! Friendship is our church service designed specifically for people with developmental disabilities! Kristen Halpin oversees this service. Families, group homes, individuals with care givers, whoever your loved one is, they are all welcome at Friendship! At our Friendship service, not only do we share God’s love, we also enable and encourage everyone who attends the service to become an active part of God’s family. At Friendship we sing songs to God, learn a Bible story, make a craft and enjoy eating snacks together! Parking spots on Wednesday evenings are reserved JUST FOR FRIENDSHIP ATTENDEES with cones right in front of the main door to our church.  When you arrive, our greeters will be there to move a cone for you to park!  We hope to see you here:)
