Successful Retreat and Ecumenical worship featuring Pastor Don Piper

Thanks to all who helped make the retreat and worship service this past weekend possible.  Many hearts were blessed by Don Piper's testimony and encouraging words about finding a "new normal" after a traumatic experience.  We will be planning another retreat next spring, in cooperation with many of the other churches here in Franklin, details will be posted here and at when they are available.

Awana Awards Night

May 5th was our annual awards night for Awana.  There was a high number of clubbers who earned their book awards, (nearly every kid who came for the majority of the year) as well as several who completed the extra credit sections as well.  Thanks to all who volunteered this past year, our numbers have never been higher!  We look forward to seeing this group of kids grow next year as God continues to bless the study of his Word.
