During our sermon series on friendship, we’ve dug into Scripture and into the past to learn how we can reclaim the lost art of making and keeping friends.
Friendship is a funny thing, and so are these vintage friend photos! That’s why throughout our Friendship series, we held this caption contest!
Each Sunday, we featured a new photo of a friendship from the past. You submitted your best line and we announced the winners each Sunday. Disclaimer: There were no prizes other than the glory of hearing YOUR caption read aloud during the service 😉
