March 25th, 1932

On this date, eighty years ago today, Helen "Jo" Beach was baptized and became a member of the First Baptist Church of Franklin, PA.  We have been very blessed here at Franklin with long-serving members of our congregation whose contributions have spanned not only years, but decades.  Congratulations to Jo on eighty years of membership!

Church membership aproves By-Laws revision

The membership of the church voted to approve the recommended changes to the church By-Laws that were put forth by the By-Laws committee and approved by the Board.  The proposed changes took effect on May 1st.  There are several significant changes that anyone interested should see for themselves by clicking on the link below to view the new By-Laws.  Among them: the boards have been restructured from 3 to 2 and from 20 members to 10.  The requirement for membership has been changed to no longer require a re-Baptism of anyone who has already been baptized in another Christian church, and the new position of Missions Representative has been created to focus on the task of communicating with and caring for our church's missionaries.

Newly adopted By-Laws
