Youth Ministry (Teens)
Teenagers today have more challenges than ever before. Social media, online learning, cyber bullying, the list goes on and on. These are all obstacles that many adults have never had to deal with. Thats why our youth need an ally more than ever before. First Baptist Church of Franklin's Youth program exists to introduce teens to Jesus, nurture them in their faith, and equip them for a lifetime of glorifying God.
Honduras Mission Trip
First Baptist Church has sent a mission team to Honduras the last several years. The mission team assists local church in teaching vacation bible school for a week. Many of the children that the team encounters have never know what it's like to have a toy, to eat out, to get new school clothes, to go to school or to have indoor plumbing!
1st Peter 4:10
