I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. - John 10:10

What is Abundant Life?

The word “abundant” means exceedingly, very highly, beyond measure, more, a quantity so abundant as to be considerably more than what one would expect or anticipate.  

We want our residents to experience abundant living that is meaningful, purposeful, joyful, and eternal!



Martha Franks Retirement Community is the only Southern Baptist affiliated retirement community in the piedmont region of SC.   The spirit of community is the heartbeat of Martha Franks' Christ-centered mission.  The moment you arrive at Martha Franks, the close-knit relationships among residents and staff foster the unmistakable feel of being welcomed by family.  At Martha Franks, retirement living is an opportunity to live abundantly as residents discover new ways to serve Christ and others with purpose.

Our Beautiful Campus

It's not just the place, it's the people. Our residents are pleasantly surprised to discover just how quickly Martha Franks becomes home. 


Relationships Matter

Our community fosters an atmosphere of living, not retiring. An environment of continued service and purpose, not idle sitting. Many of our residents are drawn to our community because they have served as pastors, missionaries, or very active church members with a passion to continue in service. Our residents come together, pray together and serve together as God gives new vision and ways to minister throughout the retirement community and in the surrounding community at large.

“We both took care of our parents and are adamant we do not want this for our children. They tell us frequently, it’s the best gift we could give them.”

As a continuing care retirement community (CCRC), Martha Franks is equipped to support the changing needs of residents without requiring them to relocate.  Residents have security and peace of mind in knowing their future needs will be met.  Living options include cottages, patio homes, garden apartments, assisted living, memory care, rehabilitation and skilled nursing.


Our Amenities


The surrounding grounds include a lake with paved walking trails, outside patio areas, lovely prayer garden and numerous azaleas and dogwood trees…there is always something in bloom.


We have church services, morning devotions, and Bible studies that are open to residents and members of the surrounding community to worship and serve together!


Our calendar is filled with events and excursions both on and off campus.  Enjoy dinner outings, cultural events and shopping or raise your voice in song with the Martha Franks singers.


Like a small town, Martha Franks has its own library, beauty/barber shop, bistro, gift shop, Chapel, wellness facilities and mail service.


Most popular of all is our lovely southern style dining and delicious meals where the friendships are just as inviting as the menu items.

It’s like heaven on earth... when I drove up I knew I entered holy ground... I see love.

Dawn Neely, Former co-Chaplain & Resident

"Martha Franks is home. Every day I experience love, compassion, friendship and appreciation."


“Many people think when you enter a retirement community, you stop living.  In many ways, I have grown.”
