Presbyterian Men

Ned Kraft

7:00MISSION STATEMENT – To lead Presbyterian Men into a vital relationship with Jesus Christ and to assist in their spiritual, personal and community development.

The Presbyterian Men's group is open to all the men.  If you would like to get more involved in activities, enjoy the fellowship, and enjoy eating out together, then please join us at our monthly meeting, or at our weekly lunch or at our monthly breakfast.
Together we can grow in Faith, serve with Hope, and share God's Love.

We are continuing our fund raising to help homeless Veterans in Western NC.  You can make a donation at any time, if using a check make it out to FNCPM.

Our monthly meetings are on the first Monday of the month and coincide with the Ruth's Circle meeting. The women have changed their meeting time to 5:30 pm. Our monthly meetings will now be at 5:30 pm as several of the wivesand husbands ride together.

     We glorify God thru Christian fellowship and our annual fund raiser for homeless veterans is the hallmark of who we are and what we do. In addition to this effort we do a lot of  things year round that you will find fun and interesting.  All our activities are voluntary and take into account that you may have a busy life and don’t want to be tied down to a constant responsibility. Participation is totally up to you depending on your schedule. Our members "plug in” to help where they can.

     We would like to invite any of our men to join our group. We have one regular meeting once a month on the “First Monday" in Tartan Hall.

     Contact Ned Kraft 828-369-0768 or email:, if you are interested.


The Presbyterian Men would like to thank all who attended the September Hot Dog Extravaganza lunch.  Thank you for bringing delicious desserts and donating to such a worthy cause, helping homeless veterans in Western North Carolina.  Because of you, we collected over $800. Thank you.

The last fundraiser of the year will be a booth at the Pumpkinfest  in downtown Franklin on October 21, from 9 am to 4 pm.  If you would like to help with the setup/take down and/or help out at the booth, please call Ned Kraft.
