Upcoming Service Events
Experience India 2017
July & August
If you are interested in experiencing India, we offer several opportunities each year for you to be a part of a trip! Our 2017 schedule is still to be determined, but we’d love to hear about your passion for serving!
At Friends Church, we have a passion for working with at-risk youth and foster children. It is our hope that every one of these precious children will be cared for. We have found that loving on them can completely change the course of their life. If you would like more info on ways you can help with this cause, click here.
Ongoing Service Opportunities
We believe that God has placed us in our homes, apartments, condos and neighborhoods with one primary purpose in mind: to share the good news of Jesus with those who are in close proximity to us. In a sense, Jesus wants us to take “spiritual responsibility” for our neighborhood: He wants us to actively pray for and reach out to our neighbors with the gospel message.
Locally, we intentionally serve our public schools in order to enhance the education experience for our children and teenagers. In our school partnering effort we are also working to get HT Awareness training out to every student at every age level in an effort to prevent as many potential victims as possible from falling prey to traffickers.
The Education Task Force is a group that teaches community leaders, families and children about the crimes of injustice targeted at youth today, particularly human trafficking. Through community partnerships and continuing to raise awareness of this matter, we have an ability to reduce this epidemic in our area! For more info:
We are committed to doing everything within our power to end the trafficking of children in Orange County. Child trafficking, especially the sex trafficking of young girls from 9 to 17, is an exploding epidemic in our OC culture. We are working in citywide programs with local law enforcement to provide resources for every rescued victim. We are also working with a range of foster care service agencies to have an impact on every foster child in the OC.
The At Risk Task Force is a group that seeks to love on foster kids in the OC area. With over 2,400 kids in the system, this group is committed to offering love and support to as many children as possible in an effort to keep them safe from the many injustices in our cities. For more info:

Global Freedom involves engaging in ways to serve, pray and also to give. WE do this in order to EXTEND our lives, EXPAND our influences and to ENLARGE our impact.
