Important Update

In-sanctuary worship will resume Sunday, May 24th, at 10:30am. At this time, this will be our only service each week.

Our greeters will make sure our three main sets of double doors are open before and after church. We will also have hand sanitizer available when you arrive for church and when you leave. All classrooms and offices will be off limits with the exception of the nursery and restrooms.

During worship, we will be using every other row for seating. Unless sitting with your family, please do your best to leave the middle of the pew open to observe social distancing.

We are discontinuing our meet and greet, and are asking that you refrain from shaking hands before and after the service. For the time being, we will not be passing the plates for offering. Instead, tables will be set up in the back of the sanctuary with offering boxes and tithe envelopes available.

To tithe, give or donate you may also:

  1. Tithe or donate from this page
  2. Mail checks to Franklin BMC at 6000 S. Dixie Hwy Franklin, OH 45005
  3. Text the word GIVE to 833-421-0414
