First and Franklin – A Baltimore neighbor.

First & Franklin

You Belong Here

 

 

 

A Community of Worship

Our service is faithful to tradition, musically inspired, socially engaged.

 

 

 

 

 

A Community of Service

We promote peacemaking and social justice, in Baltimore and beyond.

 

 

 

 

 

A Community of Fellowship

Our congregation seeks to increase our understanding of each other.

 

 

We are an inclusive, diverse congregation devoted to enriching our community through socially engaging and relevant preaching and an inspirational congregational music program, service to others, and fellowship that increases our understanding of one another. Our mission is to make Baltimore a better community for everyone, and we welcome anyone who comes through our doors.

ALL ARE WELCOME! 

First & Franklin Presbyterian Church (USA) welcomes everyone to worship with us, regardless of gender expression, gender identity, and sexual orientation. A member of the More Light Presbyterians since 1980, our congregation is committed to inclusivity and full participation in the Church for all individuals, including service and the clergy.

 

We believe that the affirmation of one's gender identity and sexual orientation is Scripturally based and a natural outflow of God's perfect creation and love. Here at First & Franklin, you are welcome, you are seen, and you are loved just the way God made you.

“At First & Franklin, we are a quirky and very independent congregation.”

“The whole community here really embraces [music] as a really integral part of the service, as a means to get the message out — the message of peace.”

“I come once a week because I want to, not because I have to. I come to church here because I belong here.”
