Get to Know Us

We understand how difficult it can be to find your way around somewhere that is new. Then when you add a few hundred people in the mix, the task of finding some place to call home can feel insurmountable. That’s why we have worked hard to establish 3 different environments, each specifically designed to help you feel more at home.

First Look

We think it’s more fun to experience Franklin First UMC in motion. Please be our guest on a Wednesday night for dinner and a tour. It’s exactly like it sounds. Join a staff member for dinner at our Main Campus and then enjoy a tour of the seen and not so seen parts of the FFUMC building with a little history of how this all came to be on the corner of Franklin Road and Mack Hatcher. Contact John to get this party started.

First Steps

First Steps is a series of 4 interactive sessions that helps you understand the “Why” of our mission, the “What” of your next steps, and the “How” of your participation in God’s redemptive plan in the world.

We’ll cover everything from what it means to be a follower of Christ, how to grow in your spiritual journey, a look at the history of the church, and more. It’s easy, it’s fun. You’ll meet new people and find a church that feels like home.

Next Steps

Let’s face it, this is a big place. Navigating your next steps is part of the journey. Here are a few ways to connect faster.

You can reach us anytime by email via our staff page here. Just drop us a note.

There is always something going on a Franklin First UMC. Be on the lookout for big and small events, retreats and special events. You never know who you’ll meet along the way that can help you get connected.
