“Last year was tough on everyone,” said Rev. Kathy McAdams. “We have continued to gather for worship in whatever way possible. We have continued to serve the community by growing food for the Franklin Food Pantry, providing lunch for Common Cathedral and its unhoused congregation twice, and installing a handicap-accessible restroom.”
Funds earned from the silent auction help continue outreach to the area, Rev. McAdams added. “Please participate in our on-line auction, as well as the Pumpkin Patch in October, so that we can continue to have a positive impact in the Franklin community and beyond.”
The Virtual Silent Auction and Pumpkin Patch replace the church’s holiday fair this winter. The annual Christmas Fair has been a staple in Franklin and a source of income for St. John’s Church.
