We meet on the first and third Thursdays of every month at Puckett’s Grocery and Restaurant, 120 Fourth Avenue South, Franklin at 7 a.m. Breakfast buffet is $5 (best deal in town). We’re over promptly at 8:00.
Our guest on Thursday, May 2, was named in 2017 an Officer of the Order of the British Empire by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II for his contribution to music and modern hymn writing. Having an OBE join our little group in Franklin is a first for us!
Keith Getty loves hymns and worship and singing. He and his wife, Kristyn, have re-invented the traditional hymn form. With Stuart Townsend he wrote “In Christ Alone,” “The Power of the Cross,” “Speak O Lord,” and many more of your favorite hymns. In August Getty Music will host a Worship Conference called “Sing!” that will help pastors and musicians build a biblical understanding for congregational singing.
“Our desire,” said Keith, “is to encourage churches towards a deeper, more dynamic view of theology, artistry, and mission in congregational singing.”
Join us on May 2 as Keith shares his story of how Jesus touched his life and gave him a vision of a deeper and more dynamic view of theology, artistry, and mission.
I hope you can join us. Invite a friend who enjoys worshipping God in song. You and your friend will be glad you did. We are over promptly at 8 a.m. Breakfast is only $5 – the best deal in town.

“Then the Lord asked Moses, ‘Who makes a person’s mouth? Who decides whether people speak or do not speak, hear or do not hear, see or do not see? Is it not I, the Lord? Now go! I will be with you as you speak, and I will instruct you in what to say.’ But Moses again pleaded, ‘Lord, please! Send anyone else” (Exodus 4:11-13) Has God been calling you out of your comfort zone lately?
