The Deaf Ministry at Friendship was started in October 1989. Kitty Coltrane (our first deaf member) and Diane Nolte (an interpreter for the deaf) joined the church and soon after began teaching sign language classes.
We have many faithful interpreters in our church family who use their ability to get the Gospel message to the hearing impaired.
The Deaf Ministry has touched many lives and has been instrumental in meeting the needs of both Deaf and Hearing.
We have been blessed to see many souls saved and lives changed through this ministry. We consider ourselves an outreach to the community, welcoming college students and others as a place to communicate with the Deaf, while at the same time planting seeds for the Lord.
We attend fellowships, workshops and deaf camp. Our sign choir performs at all of our special holiday services throughout the year.
