The Lost Art of Friendship Caption Contest

Posted on

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 😉

You can view each week’s photo and some of the submitted captions right here:
