Family Discipleship

Fellowship Franklin

Here at Fellowship Bible Church, we believe that parents are the primary spiritual influencers in their child’s life—that two combined influences working together are greater than two individual influences working separately. We are convinced that God calls the home and the church to work together to influence the next generations for Christ. Since each family is unique, we desire for the family of faith to come alongside our families. Therefore, we are committed as a church to work in partnership with you, the parents, to help develop a lasting faith in your family.

Because this is so important, we’re developing a common path toward discipleship in partnership with the families in our church. It is our desire to focus these efforts to help all to mature in Christ along this path.

Family Worship

We encourage families to worship together during our Sunday services. Especially our middle school and high school students. We hope to involve our students in the life of the church where they can serve and live on mission with their parents and other adults. It is our desire for our students to own their faith and their use their unique giftedness is ministering to the Fellowship family.
