STEVENSVILLE — Safe Harbor Presbyterian Church celebrated Founders’ Sunday, its 15th anniversary and its 10th year in its current building September 29.
The Stevensville congregation celebrated with a chili and cornbread cook-off after its 11 o’clock service, during which a brief history of the church was recalled and a reading of the founding members’ names was presented.
During the fellowship of the chili cook-off, Pastor F. Todd Williams dedicated a memorial brick garden listing the founders’ names. Families of Lighthouse Christian Academy, a Classical school and ministry of the church, and congregation members purchased memorial bricks as part of a fundraiser to complete the construction of the new playground for the school and church children. Williams dedicated the playground as well in his remarks. The engraved bricks include dedications, memorials, Bible verses, student handwriting, and more.
A few remaining bricks in the design are still available for engraving. The brick layout, in a cross pattern, was designed and placed by Jay Roche, owner of Natural Surroundings Inc., of Damascus. Lighthouse Christian Academy and Safe Harbor Presbyterian Church are located in Stevensville at 931 Love Point Road. For more information, go to www.lcacademy.org.
