There are so many options in life calling for our attention.
Our Angel Shop has a large selection of gently used formal wear for female and male students. All students are welcome to shop for the upcoming Prom & Homecoming dances.
For Prom this season, the Angel Shop will be open from 12:30 - 2 pm on Sundays starting on January 21st.
No charge! All formal wear is free of cost to any student. We accept donations to support Franklin First's mission and outreach programs.
We accept donations of gently used and cleaned formal dresses, men's suits, ties, shoes, purses, jewelry, and other formal attire.
Donations can be dropped off at the church during Angel Shop hours or on:
Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday: 9 am - 2:30 pm,
Tuesday evenings: 5:30 - 6:30 pm Thursday afternoons: 4-5 pm
Do you ever wrestle with doubt in your daily life? Where is God when bad things happen? Does God hear our prayers? Is there a heaven? How can we know? Even as people of faith, it is normal to have doubts. Doubt can be a path to a deeper, richer encounter with God. Join Pastor Laura as we explore Rev. Adam Hamilton’s new book, “Wrestling with Doubt, Finding Faith.” Save the dates, beginning at 5:30 these Sunday evenings: February 18 & 25; March 3, 17 & 24.
If you would like to purchase the book, it is available on Amazon. We will be using handouts for the class. We will begin with a light meal and brief fellowship and then transition to study. Class will be over by 7:30 pm. Please register online or by calling the office by February 4 so that we know how much material to prepare.

Need a Prayer?
Prayer is a powerful resource when you or a loved one is hurting or sick. We often call upon our Franklin First family to pray for others in need. If you or someone you know is in need of prayers, let Pastor Laura and our prayer warriors pray for your concerns.
