Our Mission

Franklin Community Church is a beacon of faith, embracing each individual, and nurturing the development of Christian discipleship.











The Book Club is currently reading:

Title:
Budda in the Attic
Author:
Julie Otsuka
When:
February 20, 7 p.m.
Location:
Church Parlor

The Buddha in the Attic traces the extraordinary lives of these women, from their arduous journeys by boat, to their arrival in San Francisco and their tremulous first nights as new wives; from their experiences raising children who would later reject their culture and language, to the deracinating arrival of war. Once again, Julie Otsuka has written a spellbinding novel about identity and loyalty, and what it means to be an American in uncertain times.
