Assorted Desserts

Cost is $5.00 adult, $3.00 children, and $15.00 family maximum. Remember, if you are celebrating a birthday during this week, your meal is free.
Worship Flowers

Thank you to all who donated worship flowers throughout 2018. They are a beautiful reminder of God’s creation that add to worship each week. Each Monday they are rearranged into vases and delivered to homebound members or to those who have experienced a death in the family or are recovering from illness. Many of the 2019 dates are still available, and the cost is $85.
You may sign up in the church office or by contacting Glenda Andrews ( gandrews@fpcfranklin.org or 615-794-5114.) 
Stephen Ministry
Jesus spoke to them saying, ‘I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life .” John 8:12
You are not alone. God is always with us. If you or someone you know is lonely, contact our Stephen Ministers. They are ready to care for you. For more information call our confidential voicemail at 615-746-7888 or email stephenministry@fpcfranklin.org .
College Student Care Packages

Our Keep in Touch Ministry will be sending some “love” to our college students around Valentine’s Day and need updated addresses.  Parents of college students - whether your student has a new address for the spring or not, please send it to Glenda, gandrews@fpcfranklin.org, by the end of December. We want to make sure each address is correct, and the easiest way is for you to send it again to verify. Thank you for your help. We love our college students and look forward to reminding them of God’s love.
Pictorial Directories

You should have received an email from Glenda Andrews on December 20 about how to access the mobile directory, which is available through the church website. If you have questions, please contact Glenda ( gandrews@fpcfranklin.org or 615-794-5114). We also have paper directories (one per family/individual) available on the counter in the church office. We hope this will help you match names and faces so you can extend hospitality by calling each other by name.
RideShare Ministry

If you need a ride to worship or other church activity or would like to provide a ride for someone, email rideshare@fpcfranklin.org or call Jane Herron (615-579-7466) or Steve Lewis (615-414-0047). This is a wonderful way to respond to God’s grace and connect with another person in our community in the process .
Growth Groups

New Growth Groups will meet weekly beginning February 24 through April 13. We were enlightened and challenged by Amy–Jill Levine in August when she led a Wednesday night series. Now her words will enhance our Lenten journey as her newest book, Entering the Passion of Jesus: A Beginner's Guide to Holy Week , will be our Growth Group companion this spring. Look for more details in the coming weeks.
