New Fall Event for all ages

This year’s “Annual Church Picnic” will look a little bit different, but we’ll still get to be together to fellowship with one another OUTSIDE and SOCIALLY DISTANCED in our new fall event.
 
We will begin at 5:30 PM with a Reformation-themed Worship in the Courtyard (with Bagpipes!) and then move to the Pavilion area to enjoy our BYOP dinner (Bring your own Picnic) and conversation until the sun sets and the movie begins. We will enjoy Monsters, Inc. on a big inflatable screen.
 
We’re also asking for everyone to bring canned food donations for GraceWorks Ministries.
 
Bring your chair, wear your mask, and join us for all or part of this new fun fall event.
 
Rain Date: October 4
 
If you have any questions, contact Anne Keener (akeener@fpcfranklin.org).
Yoga via Zoom

What are you doing at 8:30 AM on Wednesdays? All ages and levels are invited to practice yoga with your church family via Zoom each Wednesday morning. 

We stream different www.YogawithAdriene.com videos so we are all watching her and not each other, but you can even turn off your camera if that makes you happy. Click here to join us for yoga which is good for the body followed by fellowship and prayer which is good for the soul. Contact Betty Barcheski (betty@barcheski.com) to learn more. All are welcome.
