FRANKLIN FIRST HISTORICAL STORIES
For eight years, FFUMC member Robert Bowman has written a historical article to be featured in Franklin First’s Steeple Bell newsletter. He has taken this labor of love and compiled all the articles into one booklet to share with our members.
The articles are arranged into five sections:
• Church Building History Items
• Circuit Riders & Past Minister's Stories
• Congregation Members and Groups
• Community Events & Organizations
• General Methodist Denomination Items
