In life and in death, we belong to God.
Jacob (Jake) Wilson died on Friday, September 30, after a long struggle with Leukemia.
Jake’s family joined FPC in 2014. Jake was confirmed as a sixth grader, and was currently a student at Page High School.
Jake had a wonderfully caring spirit and showed the love of Christ in many ways in his family, church, and community.
There will be a celebration of Jake’s life on October 23 at 4:30 p.m. at the Nashville Sounds Stadium.
Please be in prayer for Jake’s parents, Paul and Rebecca; his sisters, Hannah and Emma; and his grandmother, Jan Van Heiningen.

Primetimers event TONIGHT
Join us by 6:30 PM at Franklin First United Methodist Church, 120 Aldersgate Way, Franklin. The featured artist for October is Gordon Kennedy. Don’t know Gordon? Well, as that may be the case I bet one of the songs he wrote just might “Change the World.” Gordon comes to us this night fresh off a tour with Garth Brooks. So, we’re sure to hear a lot of interesting and fun stories.  Someone from the Primetimers team will be in the hall at 6 PM to greet you, and you are welcome to join us in “saved” seating.

Presbyterian Women will meet on Tuesday, October 11 in the parlor at 9:45 AM. They meet each month, September - May on the 2nd Tuesday in the Parlor from 9:45 – 11:00. Their study this year is Celebrating Sabbath: Accepting God’s Gift of Rest and Delight by Carol M. Bechtel. We will study Lesson 2 in October.

We’ll start off with a family-friendly Trunk or Treat at 5 PM on Saturday, October 22. All are invited to dress up in a costume, park your vehicle in the preschool area, decorate your trunk, and bring a bag of candy/trinkets/treats to distribute. Come as early as you need to be ready for trunks open at 5. Trunks will be judged for the MOST CREATIVE, MOST ATTENTION TO DETAIL, & CUTEST COSTUMES. Then we’ll move on to dinner, where we’ll have an award-winning BBQ feast prepared by our own Eric England! We’ll end the evening with an Outdoor Movie, Encanto, at sundown. Bring chairs & blankets.

Thank you for showing love for your Neighbor through your congregation's recent contribution to GraceWorks Ministries.

Thank you and GraceWorks for being His hands and feet."
