Christian Nurture Committee had a great time at the Easter Egg Hunt and would like to say a special thank you to all who helped and brought children to enjoy and celebrate this special event. The fellowship was great and the Christian love was ever so evident in the sharing that took place within our church family and with visiting families. It warmed our hearts!
A special thank you to everyone for making Easter Sunday so special from our wonderful breakfast by the Men of the Church, our Sunday School, Worship Service & Cantata, and the beautiful Easter Lilies in the Sanctuary. A wonderful celebration of Jesus Christ Resurrection!
Christian Nurture Committee is pleased to be assisting with a covered dish meal following the Saint James Male Chorus on May 6th.  Our committee will be providing meats for the meal. WOC will be providing drinks. We ask that our church members, who are able, bring side dishes/vegetables and desserts. But most importantly bring yourself, family and friends, as we praise our Lord through music. There will be plenty of food for everyone so come and enjoy! Hope to see you there.
Women of the Church celebrate with Audrey Smith that she has a new job opportunity. Unfortunately Audrey will not be able to continue as co-moderator of WOC.  Bonnie Williams and Grace Lowe have agreed to partner as Co-Moderators of Women of the Church again this year.
Women of the Church will be doing their annual birthday dinner & offering at the circle meeting in May. Our Guest Speaker will be Jill McNeely. All women of the church are invited to this special event.
The excitement and beauty of spring signals that summer is just around the corner. That means Graduations are being planned and will soon be here. We at Franklin Presbyterian Church are proud of all of our graduates both in the church family and our own families. We plan to celebrate those graduates during morning
 Worship Service on June 10th.  Save the date for “Yourself” if you are graduating and invite “Your Graduate” to join us for that special recognition.  We hope all the family will join in this special moment. I need your help in making sure we have a complete list of all graduates. Please let me or a member of Nurture Committee know if you or someone in your family will be graduating this spring/summer. I will get all the details from you when we talk.
Upcoming: Men of the Church along with Christian Nurture Committee are interested in providing another Model Rocket Program for our Youth this Spring/Summer. Please let Doug Foxworth, John Lowe, or myself know as soon as possible if you may be interested in participating in this event again this spring or early summer.

So our wish for you comes from Numbers 6:24-26 – “The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the LORD lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace”.
