FRANKLIN PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH

We are a community of believers called by God to live humbly in the spirit of Christ and to act as His voice and hands in our world.

Our ministries and missions emphasize worship, prayer, study, hospitality to others, and care within our congregation.  We are focused especially on the issues of poverty in our community and the world around us through projects and programs aimed at addressing the needs of those who are hungry and without enough clothing or adequate shelter, and those suffering abuse.

God judges obedience by how well the needs of others are met. When they hunger and thirst, where is the bread of new life? When they are outcast or imprisoned, what has become of Christís compassion and care? When they are sick or alone, how are they told of the miracles Jesus performed? As the least of Godís people are raised to behold the hope of the gospel, Godís will is done.

                                                                                

Come, God is seeking to gather us together.

Like a shepherd searching for lost sheep, God calls us.

Something or someone has summoned us here.

Dare we believe that God knows and welcomes us?

God reaches out to rescue all who have strayed.

Scattered, weak, and injured ones are drawn to God.

We come, in need of healing, seeking a blessing.

Our faith draws us here, in spite of our doubts.

Come, above all else, to worship and give thanks.

Make a joyful noise to the Creator of all worlds.

Godís steadfast love becomes real to us here.

We are reminded of Godís immeasurable greatness.

 

 


Prayer of the Day

Let us pray.

 

We come with gladness, loving God, drawn by our need and by a desire to praise you and give thanks. Enlighten the eyes of our hearts that we may be full of hope. Enlarge the circle of our concern that we may see the stranger as next of kin, the hungry person as part of our own family, the one who is sick as a whole individual deserving of our care. Grant us the presence of Christ that we may learn more fully to follow in the footsteps of Jesus. Amen.
