The Ten Commandments are foundational not only to our faith, but also to our modern system of justice. We recite the Commandments almost every Sunday as a response to the forgiveness of sins. In doing so, we are acknowledging that the Commandments are a gift from the hand of God to guide us into living with God and one another.

We also donate a rosebud for the newest births in our church. 
New Members
Jim and Whitney Schindley moved to Franklin, TN from Suffield, CT in August 2013 along with their two children Alex (13) and Craig (12). They attended Calvary Presbyterian Church in Enfield, CT. Since moving to Franklin, the Schindley family has been attending FPC and the boys have enjoyed Sunday School. Both Alex and Craig were confirmed in May. The Schindleys enjoy the family atmosphere and have always felt welcome at FPC.

July 2NDSAT Recap
Thank you to all our faithful volunteers who showed up this past Saturday to assemble care kits for Boys and Girls Club and Servant Group International!
Thank you for your $2, 499.85 gift on 5/11/2022 to GraceWorks' Fuel Bag program and helping to feed local children who may otherwise be hungry over the weekends. A teacher at Nolensville Elementary said an example of the impact of this program that stood out to her was a second grader who was always lethargic on Mondays after a weekend of little food. "...but when he started getting Fuel Bags every week, he began to perk up and pay more attention in class."
Presbyterian Disaster Assistance appreciates those of you who prepared and supported the Gift of the Heart kits and CWS blanket ministries. We believe you are helping to offer not only essential supplies such as personal hygiene or school items, a warm blanket or a way to clean up following the disaster - but also hope.
