Taking Faith Home: What is it?

Taking Faith Home is a new weekly faith formation resource to help you, your household, and/or small group grow in love with God and neighbor. Here are a few key features:

  • Based on the Revised Common Lectionary–a three-year cycle of scripture readings that are used to varying degrees by most mainline Protestant churches.
  • Gives examples of four key faith practices (caring conversations, devotions, service, and rituals and traditions) based upon the weekly theme.
  • Includes a weekly prayer, Bible verse, mealtime prayer, and blessing.
  • Offers suggested (short) daily Bible readings and a Hymn for the week.

This resource is meant to be malleable. You don’t have to do it all. Depending upon your personal preferences or the makeup of your household or small group, you may find certain parts more meaningful that others. Pick and choose what works for you, your household, and/or your small group.

“Taking Faith Home” will be included in the weekly “Life Together” post. You can see and download this week’s “Taking Faith Home” below. If you would like to receive a paper copy of “Taking Faith Home,” please contact the Church Office.

Ensure Collection

The Franklin United Methodist Church is a proud supporter of the Franklin Food Pantry. Each month, we solicit donations to supply the pantry with Ensure. This provides the pantry with something that it does not receive from the regional food bank.

We try to give the pantry four (4) cases each month. Each case costs approximately $30. If you would like to make a financial contribution to support this mission, please make a designated gift to the “Mission Fund.” You can mail a check (write “Mission Fund” on the memo line) or make a donation online by clicking the link below. When making your donation online, make sure to click “Use this donation for Mission Fund.”

If you would like to purchase Ensure (instead of making a financial contribution), please contact the Church Office to arrange a time to drop it off at the church.

Get Connected

The Franklin United Methodist Church is moving to a new kind of church record keeping solution called Realm. It primarily serves the administrative needs of our leadership, but it also offers some exciting opportunities to support the way you are involved in our church. It will make it easier for our church family to connect with each other, keep up with what’s going on, and grow as a connected community of faith.

Every person in the church gets a unique profile. Your profile enables you to RSVP to events, track your giving, update your contact information, change your family details, and replace that outdated directory photo. And, most importantly, it allows the church to communicate better with you.

To create your profile, click the “Let’s get connected” button below.
