Organized in 1910 by fewer than ten individuals, by 1953 the Second Baptist Church had occupied several locations in Greenfield as it endured growing pains and financial difficulties. In the year the article appeared in the newspaper, the congregation is described as confident that its problems will never be as great as those that faced its founders. The headline describes the parish as a "thriving" one.
