Room in the Inn Franklin

Room in the Inn is a very simple winter shelter program where congregations open their doors one night at a time to a small group of persons who are experiencing homelessness. Participating congregations offer a warm, safe place to sleep and share an evening meal and a light breakfast the following morning. This program originated in Nashville and has been operating since 1986. They now have over 180 area congregations participating in the program and it has been replicated in many cities and towns throughout the country with great success. Check out full details and ways you can help at our R.I.T.I. page or connect with them directly on the community Facebook page.

Mustard Seed

The Mustard Seed ministry of Franklin Presbyterian Church partners with families and individuals in need to offer them a “hand up” rather than a “hand-out”.

Thank you to all in the community for supporting our annual Bean Soup lunch 2014!  With your healthy appetites and donations to the cause, we raised over $1,500 for local mission work!

Literacy

FPC has a long-standing relationship with adult literacy in Simpson County and to the Goodnight Library. Ella Hoy Goodnight, who left the money to build the public library, was the first woman elected elder of FPC. Several members and friends of FPC volunteer as tutors, serve as staff, and serve on the Board of Directors of the Simpson County Literacy Center.
