What are members saying about their Growth Growth experience?
“Growth Groups provide space for me to express my point of view without judgement and grow by hearing other people's experiences and points of view. Greeting people in church after our time together is qualitatively different. I feel blessed by the opportunity to attend a Growth Group.” 

“Growth Groups allowed me to make deep connections with others I may not have met otherwise, and the readings, discussions, and prayer deepened my faith.” 

Growth Groups will meet weekly Feb. 24 - April 13, and we will be reading Entering the Passion of Jesus: A Beginner's Guide to Holy Week by Dr. Amy-Jill Levine. Books are available in the office for $13 and a Kindle edition is also available. We hope you will prayerfully consider adding a Growth Group to your Lenten journey.
In honor of Valentine's Day, be a sweetheart and sign up to take a member a meal.
The meal ministry needs more cooks to share God's love with our members who are recovering from surgery, undergoing treatment, or grieving a loved one.
Contact Sue Mahurin today at srmahurin@aol.com to learn more or to sign up.
"But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace toward me has not been in vain .”
- 1 Corinthians 15:10a
God’s grace allows us to be who we are, but sometimes we have fears and doubts about who we are and where we are headed. If you or someone you know is having difficulties with life’s journey, call our Stephen Ministry confidential voicemail at 615-746-7888 or email stephenministry@fpcfranklin.org Our Stephen Ministers are ready to care for you.
Keep in Touch Ministry
We love our college students!

Even though our college students are unable to worship with us weekly, they are very much part of our congregation. Our youth packed care packages for our undergraduate college students during WNL, and they will receive a Valentine's package reminding them that God loves them. Thank you to Shawn Raines and Margaret Whiteside for their leadership of the Keep in Touch Ministry.

It is with great joy that we welcome our newest member, Drew Peacock, who joined on Sunday, February 10. Look for more information about Drew in the March newsletter, and please introduce yourself if you haven't already met.
