Cheerios collection

Members and friends of the Franklin Federated Church have been stacking the church altar high with hundreds of boxes of Cheerios - all to benefit the patients of The Grow Clinic at Boston Medical Center.

The effort is part of the Mission: 1 project of the United Church of Christ (UCC), one of the two progressive Christian denominations to which Franklin Federated belongs. Nationwide, members of the UCC are working to collect more than i million items of food for the hungry by November 11, 2011. The UCC is also writing thousands of letters to Congress related to issues of hunger and poverty, and raising money for hunger-related ministries in the US and in East Africa.

The Grow Clinic specializes in caring for children diagnosed with Failure to Thrive, and Cheerios are high in nutrition and they make great finger food for young children.

Franklin Federated has been collecting Cheerios for The Grow Clinic for years, encouraging members to place them in a shopping cart in the church's foyer whenever they can.  This is the biggest effort yet, however, with the church attempting to collect 1,111 boxes for the Mission: 1 project between 11/1/11 and 11/11/11.

Crossways Church coming to Summer St

The Crossway Church is seeking Planning Board approval next month to move into a church building that has sat unoccupied since it was built in the 1970s.
"Our hope is to close on the property at the end of May, or latest mid-June," Pastor Bauer Evans said yesterday.
Evans said members of the non-denominational Protestant church applied in March to renovate the church building at 282 Summer St. and a portion of land at 278 Summer St., create a parking lot and expand the site's septic system.
Church members have gone in front of the board twice already and will do so again on May 3 to "hopefully wrap things up," Evans said.

We're certainly very optimistic the church can grow

After being without a place to hold services for nearly two years, the Anglican Church of the Redeemer has found a place to call home and will dedicate it Sunday.
The congregation moved into 31 Hayward St. earlier this month after holding services at Franklin High School every Sunday. A consecration by Bishop William Murdoch of the Anglican Diocese in New England, and citations from state Rep. James Vallee, D-Franklin, will officially recognize the space as a church at tomorrow's dedication ceremony.
"This is a much more permanent space for us," said the Rev. Jack Potter. "We're excited about it.

In the News - First Universalist

The Faithful Nine were Grace Buchanon, Joe Cook and his wife Ellie, Edna Fitzgerald, Marion Chilson, Lincoln and Bunny Dana and Robert and Emilia Dean. Emilia Dean and Bunny Dana are the only living members.

"They were determined this church was not going to die," Rosine said. "Their families grew up in the church, were baptized, had weddings and funerals...they were not going to let this church die."

Franklin church will dedicate rooms those who kept it alive

Where in Franklin? - Answer #29

Where in Franklin? - Answer #29, originally uploaded by shersteve.

The pictures of the bell tower and entrance apparently were unable to help identify that this building was the Franklin Federated Church, serving the First Congregational Church and the First Baptist Church.
