Sixth Sunday After Pentecost


































































































































































































FRANKLIN PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH

We are a community of believers called by God to live humbly in the spirit of Christ and to act as His voice and hands in our world.

Our ministries and missions emphasize worship, prayer, study, hospitality to others, and care within our congregation.  We are focused especially on the issues of poverty in our community and the world around us through projects and programs aimed at addressing the needs of those who are hungry and without enough clothing or adequate shelter, and those suffering abuse.

The wheat and the seeds represent the way of Godís kingdom in the midst of the world. False doctrine and misplaced allegiance exist alongside Godís truth and Godís will.  When the harvest occurs there will be judgment. What bears good fruit will be gathered and stored. The useless will be cast aside. Jesus reminds those who hear to take note.

                                                                

God has searched us and knows us. God knows when we sit down and when we rise up.

God searches out our paths and our lying down. God is acquainted with all our ways.

Before a word is on our tongues, God knows it. Godís hand is ever available to guide us.

Such knowledge is a wonder to us. It is beyond anything we can attain.

We cannot escape from Godís Spirit. There is nowhere to flee from Godís presence.

Darkness is as light to our God. God illuminates the way before us.

 

 

Prayer of the Day

Let us pray.

 

Search us, O God, and know our hearts. Test us and know our thoughts. We gather with eager longing to know you, ever-present God, and to be known by you. We want to live as your beloved children. Assure us in these moments that you hear our prayers, even as your will is revealed to us. Fill our dreams and our waking hours with radiant hope. May every time of encounter move us to awe and fervent worship. Lead us in your way everlasting. Amen.
