Dear FPC Family,


We're asking friends and family to submit brief (less than one minute) video messages wishing Chris and Kim farewell by April 21st.


Submissions are brought together into one beautiful video gift, and it will be presented to Chris and Kim at the Farewell Reception.


To learn more and make your video submission via VIDDAY, go to THIS LINK on your computer or point your smartphone camera to the QR code below.

There is also an opportunity to provide a gift electronically to Chris & Kim in the VIDDAY invitation. If you prefer, you can drop off a check to Marie in the church office. Please put "Gift for Chris & Kim" in the "for" line of your check.


Enjoy making your short video!


If you have questions, feel free to contact Terry Love.

If you have a heart and passion for building connection and inclusion, please consider joining the Outreach Committee! Through participation in community events, creating awareness about our mission at FPC, and providing a welcoming environment for those who are looking for a church to call home, the Outreach Committee offers a wonderful chance to create meaningful impact. If you'd like to join us, please email Verna Rydlund at or Anne Keener at

Following the Reception for Chris and Kim Joiner, we invite you to stay for the Spring Potluck. Bring a dish to share and enjoy the food and fellowship.

The need for Meals on Wheels is greater than ever in our community, and our ministry has the following immediate needs:

Volunteers - drivers/riders for a couple of routes

Volunteers - Kitchen helpers

Donations - You can make one-time or ongoing donations ear marked for Meals on Wheels through FPC and this coming month we have the opportunity to participate in the FUMC's Run for Missions which will be supporting Franklin Community Meals on Wheels this year.


Please prayerfully consider supporting Meals on Wheels with your time, your financial support, and your prayers. The time commitment is 1 day per month for less than 2 hours which is a small amount of time that comes with great reward.  


If you have any questions or want to volunteer,

please contact Tiffany Bechtel.

Join us for a lovely day connecting with your church family,

enjoying live jazz music.

Please remember no outside alcohol is permitted. We'll be near the entrance (location on Facebook that afternoon). Golf carts are available for transportation up the hill. Consider bringing camp chairs.

We plan to secure picnic tables. See you there!
