What to Expect
Just inside the main entrance, you’ll find our welcome area which includes information about the church, current events, and our greeters. The greeters will happily assist you with questions as well as provide you with the morning church bulletin.
Across from the main entrance is the sanctuary, and you may sit anywhere. Except on the piano bench.
Our service begins at 9:45 am and is roughly an hour in length. As we consider ourselves a teaching church, the sermons usually focus on how we can apply the teachings of the Bible to our daily lives. We also feel God desires the worship of His people, so much of the service is also praise through song. Our music is about 70 percent contemporary and 20 percent hymns and about 10 percent polka. JK.
Most churches pass an offering plate during the service for collection of money to go back to God. At Franklin Community Church, we do not do this. We believe we are to give secretly as God is the one who truly sees what we give of ourselves. Therefore, there is a slot in the wall next to the church office where people may place their offerings at any time
We provide child care for infants and pre-schoolers during the worship service. We have worked hard to train our child-care workers, and your children will be safe and happy. Kids in Elementary school attend the first part of the worship service but leave when the sermon begins so that they can have their own teaching and worship times.
At 10:45, the worship service ends and we have a transition time, with refreshments. At 11:00, the adults and teens break into Life-groups throughout the church building. The goal of these groups is to discuss the sermon passage, with an emphasis on helping each other know how to apply it in our daily lives. We close by praying for each other.
