S.W.A.G. Students Worshipping an Awesome God Youth & Children's Ministry


The SWAG Youth Ministry seeks to reach, train and equip all youth for spiritual growth and service to God and others.



The purpose of SWAG is to connect with the youth of Friendship and the surrounding community through powerful worship, exciting activities, and social interactions so they can grow in CHRIST, study GOD’s Word, and offer themselves in Service to the KINGDOM.

Let's congratulate Malik McConnell for his bravery.  Malik saved the lives of two young people while on a school field trip.  Murphy High School awarded Malik with a medal for his sacrifice of service to his fellowman.  His family, friends and Pastor Payne attended the awards ceremony.
