Our First Lady

First Lady Marie Little strives to let the love of Christ shine through her daily living. From her favorite seat in the sanctuary, she can be seen praising God on any given Sunday.  Not long after uniting in fellowship with the Friendship family, First Lady Marie left her seat and gracefully walked to the front of the sanctuary during a Sunday morning worship service and asked Pastor Little for permission to share with the fellowship.  Of course, knowing that this was unusual, Pastor Little yielded to God’s leading.  As the anxious congregation listened, First Lady Marie shared how she had been petitioning and patiently waiting for God to tell her how to best contribute to kingdom building in our church.  God’s answer resulted in an intercessory Pastor’s prayer group.  The heartfelt desire to serve God and to pray earnestly for our Pastor, church members and First Lady Marie meet each Sunday morning and offer up intercession for our beloved Pastor.

Marie is a native of Detroit, Michigan and during her childhood, as a member of Springhill Missionary Baptist Church, she sang her first solo.  She has been singing the Lord’s praises ever since. Her mellifluous alto voice rings out from Friendship’s Combined Choir as well as several community choirs in the region.  It is Marie’s heart’s desire and ministry to spread the good news of Jesus Christ through song.  Not only is Marie a gifted singer, but our First Lady has also written several songs that inspire, motivate and teach of God’s faithfulness and love.

Second only to her love for God, is our First Lady’s love for her family.  Her roles as wife, mother, daughter, sister and aunt are cherished and blessed.  Pastor Litte and Marie are the proud parents of Niaya and John.
