Our Ministries


At Franklin Road, we provide a secure and kid-friendly environment for your children. Our state of the art nurseries for children under 3 to specialized classes and programs for preschool and elementary level students allow children to learn more about Jesus in an exciting atmosphere. We strive to provide parents with the peace of mind that their child is under the care of pre-screened, qualified leadership. Join us each Sunday and Wednesday for kids classes or special events throughout the year such as Vacation Bible School in the summer and Harvest Festival in the fall!


FRBC Youth

We realize that our youth are the future leaders of our nation. Today, our youth face all kinds of worldly influences that are designed to draw them away from God. Our number one goal is to reach lost youth with the love of Jesus Christ and see them trust Christ as their personal Savior. We then want to instruct and inspire them to love and be committed to Christ. We preach strong family values and teach teens to “put on the whole armor of God” in order to protect themselves from the attacks of Satan. While we have lots of fun activities and events, ultimately we want to develop teens with Godly character that are totally Committed to Christ!

LifeStage Adult Bible Classes

Godly relationships cultivate a growing faith in Jesus Christ. Our LifeStage Adult Bible Classes meet each Sunday at 10:00 AM and allow adults the opportunity to find these relationships by connecting with others in a similar stage of life. Stop by the information desk to find out how you can get connected with a LifeStage class

CrossPoint Young Adults

CrossPoint is an extension of Franklin Road Baptist Church for the college students and young adults of our community. Our primary purpose is to point people to the cross of Jesus. We invite you to get connected with CrossPoint and experience the amazing life Jesus has for you.

Bus Ministry

Jesus said, “Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.”  What a great opportunity of service our bus ministry provides!  Every week our church buses roll throughout Middle Tennessee bringing hundreds of people to church to hear the gospel.  We see people trust Christ as Savior every week through this outreach.

From pizza parties to carnival rides, each week there is something new and exciting.  Each week, riders from around Rutherford County enjoy a fun-filled program on the bus and in exciting Church service.  A bus captain has the unique opportunity to fulfill the aspects of the Great Commission.  Not only do they reach new people with the gospel of Christ, they also have an avenue to disciple them and see them grow in grace.

Senior Sonbeams

Franklin Road Baptist Church provides programs and activities for senior citizens of our church. From luncheons to day trips, senior adults have plenty of opportunities to fellowship and grow spiritually together. We also provide several ministry opportunities for our senior saints.


Addictions Recovery

Addiction is a wicked tool used by Satan to ruin the lives of millions of people. Only the truth of God’s Word can set someone free, and that happens every week through the Reformers Unanimous program. RU is the fastest growing faith-based addictions program in America. It is a Christ-centered addictions program that directs the addicted back to God’s support group, the local church. Through RU, one can learn to uncover spiritual needs that have led to addictive behavior and find support and encouragement for anyone wanting to break free from the chains of addiction.

If you or someone you love is in need of support and encouragement during a difficult time, please consider joining RU on Friday nights at 7:00 at FRBC. You will find a group of loving, like-minded individuals, all looking to find Gods plan for their life. If you need immediate help, please call 661.470.9092

Other questions?

If there’s something we missed on this list, feel free to contact us or ask a greeter when you arrive. Whether you’re new to the area and looking for a church home, or if it’s been a long time since you have attended church at all, we hope your first visit to Franklin Road Baptist will be a wonderful experience! We desire to serve you and your family to best of our ability. We look forward to meeting you personally!


Where do I go when I arrive?

Its hard to miss our growing campus on Highway 96 of Murfreesboro. When you arrive at our East Entrance located on Franklin Road, you will find guest parking, a canopy drop-off area, and a friendly hospitality team to welcome you as you arrive and answer any questions you may have. If you have to park a little further away, look for a friendly cart driver who will give you a smooth ride to the front door.

Most adults attend the morning Worship Service at 11:00 in the auditorium where they enjoy the traditional worship music, the warm fellowship, and the practical Bible preaching of Pastor Norris. You are welcome to attend one of many LifeStage Bible Classes during the 10:00 hour, as well. These classes are smaller group settings where you can meet people, enjoy some coffee and donuts, and hear a Bible lesson directly applicable to your stage of life. This the best way to get to know the people of our church while growing in your faith. For more information or a list of our classes, you can ask a member of our hospitality team upon your arrival.

Where do I take my children?

We believe children are a gift from God. That is why each service offers something special for every child. Safe, clean, and highly staffed nurseries for children two years old and under are available at every service. Children three years old through sixth grade experience fun, friendly, and Bible-centered classes on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights. These classes are staffed with trained, friendly, and well-qualified teachers and helpers who will make church exciting and memorable for your child. For more questions or a schedule of children’s classes offered at each service visit our FRBC Kids page.

We realize our campus can be a little complex. A member of our hospitality team will be happy to help you find the correct classes, nurseries, and pickup locations upon your arrival.

How should I dress?

There is not a dress code at Franklin Road Baptist Church for members or guests. Our ministry leaders and many of our church family dress in traditional Sunday dress; however, we want you to feel welcome and comfortable on your visit here at Franklin Road Baptist!

Am I expected to participate in the offering?

We do not invite you to Franklin Road Baptist Church for your offering. Our weekly offering is used as a time for our members to give back to God and worship Him with our finances. As our guest, we want our worship service to be our gift to you.
