HASKINS, Ohio The Haskins Federated Church council has voted to change the name of the church to Haskins Community Church, with a dedication service set for June 10.
Haskins Federated Church was created when the Baptist Church of Haskins and the Evangelical and Reformed Church decided to join together in 1946. Members of the Federated Church were given the opportunity to join either the American Baptist Church or the newly named United Church of Christ.
The council felt that the word Federated was not widely understood in today s culture and that a name change was in order.
