Franklin City Church’s Story
Franklin City Church began meeting in September 2017. They started with a small group of people who had a desire to delight in and proclaim the gospel in the city. God has been gracious in calling people into the work that He has been doing in Franklin. By the grace of God and the power of the Holy Spirit, Grant says, the church “exist(s) to behold God, build up the body of Christ, and bless the city and the world.”
They implemented a discipleship and membership pathway and installed their first 30 covenant members.
They celebrated their first two baptisms in October.
They led a partnership with other local churches to organize a community praise and prayer event to pray for the teachers, parents, and students involved in our school system.
They began the process to train their first two elder candidates and developed a healthy plan and process for them to be installed as elders in the next year.

Pray for more leaders to be raised up that will have a desire to love and serve the church.
Pray for more people in our community to hear and respond to the gospel as they gather and scatter.
