EXPAND OUR INFLUENCE:
Community Impact is an opportunity for our congregation to take an active role in helping to
restore People, Communities and Creation. By becoming active participants in our community, we are learning about modeling
the work of Christ in an authentic way.
Over the next THREE YEARS here is what we are looking to do through Community:
Friends Christian High School: Friends Church began in 1975 and currently has two campuses (Lakeview and Rose
Drive campuses) Preschool thru 8th grade with around 1,200 students. It has been a dream that one day we would continue our
education program through the 12th grade. We are looking to open Friends Christian High School in 2011 with both freshman
and sophomore classes. The new High School will be housed at a 32-acre campus on Bastanchury Road in Yorba Linda.
with Local Community Organizations: It is our objective as Friends church to partner with various local organizations
and help them to reach their own goals. Some of our current ministry opportunities include: Solidarity, Birth Choice Health
Clinic, Calicinto Ranch, Habitat for Humanity, Mary's Kitchen, and Extension Ministries.
