Translation by Robert Seal:
1746. On the 6th of July early in the morning a little son of Fridr. Wilhelm Raichert from his wife Margaretha was born into the world, so thereafter was baptized and named "Jo. Xstoph" [Johann Christoph]. Baptismal sponsors are myself Fr. Chr. Heinr. Beck, for the time being pastor of this place, with my wife Margar. Barbara; Jo. Friedr. Negelein, local innkeepr at the sign of the crown, with wife; and Jo. Simon Cammerer.
My comment: Let me know if you have any problems deciphering the abbreviated names in this record.

Comment: There is one word that I can't decipher; it is not Sermon or Predigt.
Note that in the left margin the family name is given as "Reicher" without ending "t" (and genitive "s").
Gichter is a historic name for an infant disease, marked by cramps and high fever; not to be confused with Gicht = gout
Thank you, @Ulrich Neitzel, for explaining the difference between "Gichter" and "Gicht".
Ulrich: Hello Kent and Robert,
I think I now found the missing word in this record: ...und Verlesung der Agende/a beerdigt.
I saw this word also in other records from Graben, sometimes better readable.
Agende means the protocol to follow, "the things to do" for a specific sevice in the church. Here is the Wikipedia article on Agenda: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agenda_(liturgy)
