"A place to Worship God through Relationship, Song & the Word."













Vision and History


Circle of Friends was initiated by a small group of staff from the Bethesda Abbotsford Group Home.  This small group of staff asked New Life Christian Reformed Church if we could meet in their basement.  The church agreed to our request.  The year was 2000.  The first few events were attended by a small handful of people.  As time progressed, and the word got out, the basement became too small to hold this event.  We moved upstairs to accommodate more people joining for worship and fellowship.  At present, approximately 150-170 people are attending.  Throughout this time we have felt the Lord’s presence and blessing.  We welcome all to come, experience Circle of Friends, worshiping and enjoying each other.  It continues to be our goal to encourage everyone’s participation.
