BATH — The bell in the city-owned clock in Bath’s First Baptist Church is ringing again after more than two years of silence.

Although the 157-year-old clock has not chimed in some time, the city council approved funds for repairs just this summer.

Balzer Family Clock Works of Freeport promptly took care of matters, repairing it in one month.

The bell has been ringing again since Sept. 7.

The Rev. Steve Rowe, pastor at the First Baptist Church, tells The Times Record of Brunswick the sound of bell across town is “kind of cool” and also serves as a call to God’s house.
