All are welcome for Holy Week Activities at Franklin Federated Church

Franklin Federated Church at 171 Main Street invites everyone in the community to join them for Holy Week services.

Palm/Passion Sunday worship is Sunday, April 9, at 10 AM.  The day will be marked by the singing of hosannas to mark Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem. As the service unfolds, it will transition toward the somberness of what is to occur in the week ahead - Jesus' betrayal, trial, and crucifixion.

A Maundy Thursday service and meal will be held Thursday, April 13 at 6:30 PM. The evening begins with a Tenebrae Service and a simple meal of soup and bread in the dining room. All are welcome and no reservations are needed for supper. The meal will be followed by a worship service in the sanctuary and the serving of Communion to commemorate Jesus' last meal with his Disciples.

An Easter Sunrise Service will be held on Sunday, April 16, at 6:30 AM at Camp Haiastan, 722 Summer Street, Franklin. This ecumenical service is being hosted by Franklin Federated and First United Methodist Church of Franklin.

A traditional Easter Service will be held at 10:00 AM on Sunday, April 16 at Franklin Federated, where we will celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ with flowers, hymns and praise! This beautiful tradition harkens our spirits to the promise of new life.

ALL are welcome at Franklin Federated Church, a Welcoming and Affirming Congregation affiliated with The United Church of Christ and American Baptist Churches USA.  Activity kits are available for children during worship, and nursery care is available for children up to 3 years old. Large print bulletins and hearing assistance devices are available, and an access ramp on the left side of the church enables wheelchair access to the sanctuary.
