Charles and Sandra Greenwood are celebrating their 50th anniversary.

Family and friends are invited to join the couple and their children on Saturday, Jan. 12, at First Christian Church from 3 to 5 p.m. for a celebration.




On Sunday, Jan. 6, First Christian Church of Franklin (FCCF) invites the community to participate in the launch of its new format, “Maximum Mission.”

As part of the "Maximum Mission,” FCCF is beginning a new, powerful, next generation worship service every Sunday at 10:30 a.m. This service will feature a live, dynamic message and a new structure with modern music to energize each attendee through worship.

A safe and secure Children’s Church called “Journey” for Kids (ages 4-12) will also be available at this time. Check in your child before you attend the Next Generation Service at 10:30 a.m. They’ll have fun in this interactive experience for an exciting time filled with music, games and crafts as they learn more about the gospel. Nursery is available for children ages 0-3.

For more than a decade, members of Franklin's American Legion Post 108 and the local Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) chapter have been working together to bring the holiday spirit to shut-in veterans in the community through their “Christmas Cheer” project.

According to Don Bowen, member of the American Legion, last weekend 13 volunteers worked together to visit with local veterans who are confined to their homes or who have been placed in nursing homes. “We were able to visit with 45 veterans, 20 of which were in nursing homes and give them fruit baskets, hats, poinsettias and just spend time with them,” said Bowen, who said that he has been a part of the event for the 10 years he has been with the legion. “Some of the guys were just happy to have visitors.”
