Join us for a Shorter Chapel Work Day for our April 2NDSAT! We will work on several indoor and outdoor projects from 9-11 AM this Saturday to support our neighbors at Shorter Chapel A.M.E. Church. Projects will range in skill levels, including removing vines and leaves, painting handrails, and making repairs to gutters, rails, and doors. Contact Mary Sellers if you're interested in joining us!
Bowling Green Mission Trip:
Join FPC Franklin on our mission trip to help the Bowling Green, KY community repair and recover from the tornado disaster that hit southern Kentucky this past December. We will be departing FPC Franklin on the morning of Tuesday, May 31 and returning on Saturday, June 4. We will be staying at the First Christian Church, which has offered FPC Franklin the use of their facilities. This trip will be limited to 20 volunteers and the charge will be $70 per person. Deadline to register is Wednesday April 20. Any questions, contact either Mike Anderson 615.969.1515 or Mary Sellers Shaw. RSVP on our website.
The Waverly Project is a way of “adopting” Waverly to be a recipient of consistent volunteer time over a period of a few months. We will meet in Waverly (90 minute drive) for a workday that will be 9:00-3:00. That way folks can leave Nashville at 7:30 and be home by 4:30.
This will be mainly rebuilding / construction work, just like working on a Habitat build. Volunteers will be led by a team of professional construction personnel. No real skills needed. Lunch will be provided. Volunteer coordination in Waverly is being handled by Inspiritus, a disaster response nonprofit. These efforts will be continuing in Waverly for at least another year and they need our help.
We will not have a Good Friday service this year, but our combined Holy Week service of Communion and Tenebrae will be on Maundy Thursday, April 14. Dinner is at 6 PM followed by the service at 6:30 PM. Nursery is available. RSVP HERE.
RSVP HERE for Easter breakfast following the Sunrise Service.
Flowering of the Cross
