HISTORY OF FRIENDSHIP
On the 28th of September, in 1873, a group of people met and formed themselves into an organization, which has constituted the Friendship Christian Church. In 1881, a frame building was erected, having a cost of $1800. With 122 members in the church, their situation was one of the most choice in the county, located eight miles northwest of Centralia in the midst of a rich and beautiful rolling prairie. The community is agreeable and friendly and the members of the church adhere closely to the principles taught in the Bible and those only.
