Description

Strengths

First church in the Diocese of Maryland to have a gay wedding. Blue collar; dominantly white, but there are interracial families. Active in the diocese.

Challenges

They loved their last rector, but I don't sense there's a desire to go back to those days. They had a great interim.

Comments

Good people. They welcomed members of two closed churches and named Sunday school rooms after the former parishes. One of them was Ascension, so called because it was at the end of a runway at Martin Field. True story.
