First Friends is a visitation ministry to those in our church who have limited mobility and are not able to be in fellowship with the church on a regular basis. Lay visitors are bright spots in the ordinary day as the visit, share hope and develop friendships.
This ministry brings joy to our home-bound, nursing home/assisted living, or memory-challenged members by reminding them that they are important in the life of Franklin First UMC. You will find that what starts out as a ministry to help will in turn bring you much joy.
