Each person has something they can offer to further the work of Christ through the church. Through our service and work (within our community and beyond), we grow as individuals and our community is strengthened.
Below you will find opportunities for us to work together within and beyond the church. If you have any questions, please contact the Church Office (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Members of the Prayer Team agree to pray for the needs and emergencies of our church family, friends, community, and world as requested. Requests are sent via email using the church database. The Prayer Team agrees to hold each requestion in prayer for three days. All requests are treated as confidential and are not to be forwarded beyond the Prayer Team. If you would like to become a member of the Prayer Team, please contact the Church Office (email@example.com).
If you would like to request prayer, please email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org and it will be forwarded to the Prayer Chain.
Do you like to sing? or play an instrument? Consider joining our virtual choir! Everyone is welcome to participate. You don’t have to be a professional and you don’t have to have sang in our choir before–all persons and all skill levels are welcome. To learn more go to https://franklinumc.org/virtualchoir.
Do you like to garden? or simply like being outside and working with your hands? Consider helping tend our community garden to help support the Franklin Food Pantry. We grow tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, and zucchini. If you would like to help in the garden—weeding and watering and helping to tend the garden bed and grounds—please email Pastor Jacob (email@example.com)
It takes many volunteers to help facilitate worship (both virtually and in-person) each week. If you would like to be a liturgist (virtual or in-person), usher (virtual or in-person), greeter, A/V tech, or would like to support our worship together in another way, please email the Church Office (firstname.lastname@example.org). You can find the worship volunteer schedule here.
