Providing Care for the People by the People

We all have defining moments in our lives—challenging circumstances, relational pain, and transitional seasons. How we respond during these times has a direct impact on our futures. There are many ways we seek to care for and nurture one another and God’s created world. At Franklin First UMC, we believe that God’s greatest gift of healing and reconciliation comes from Grace through Jesus Christ.

We give love because God gives love to us unconditionally.

There are times when you need someone, to listen, to be present, to be an advocate. Although we are a large congregation, it is the Congregational Care Ministry’s mission to provide care and support to families and individuals in a personal and compassionate way and to provide an atmosphere and opportunity to sense God’s presence and provision.

We offer care through Stephen Ministers, and Congregational Care Ministers, delivering flowers and prayer shawls, and offering opportunities to be connected to Creation and to lift one another up in prayer.

If you are in need of care, please contact Pastor John or call 615-794-2734. If there is a way we can meet you in prayer, please leave your prayer request below.

If you are a church member and need to reach a pastor after hours or on weekends for emergencies of death, imminent death and life changing tragedies, please contact the Pastor on call: 615-794-2734; press option 6.  Leave a voicemail and a pastor will return your call promptly.
