First & Franklin Presbyterian Church (PCUSA) welcomes everyone to worship with us, regardless of color, background, gender expression, gender identity, or 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 unique self 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.
