ST. ANDREW'S Episcopal Church on Tick Neck Road starts a "Month of Sundays" in October to celebrate completion of its new church.

A series of fairs, speakers, concerts, dinners and special events are planned and will culminate with the consecration of the new church Nov. 29 by the Rt. Rev. Robert Ihloff, bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland.

The program is being organized by church members Emerson and Ruth Champion, Marge Burr, Jane Savarola, Joan Forsythe and Bob Goodman, with Mary Heine as chairman.

The Rev. Frederick Ramsay, St. Andrew's rector, said the events will range from regularly scheduled fall activities at the church, such as the country fair and auction, to youth events and community concerts.

The celebrating will begin with an old-fashioned hymn sing-along at 7 p.m. Oct. 9, led by Sue Huber, minister of music.

A group of parishioners will travel to Hagerstown Oct. 10 to attend the consecration of the Rev. John Rabb as the new bishop suffragan of Maryland.

The first weekend concludes with the annual church picnic Oct. 11.

Other activities scheduled next month include a commissioning ceremony for Cursillo teams, which are leading a course on Christian living, at 7: 30 p.m. Oct. 16; a health fair Oct. 24; and a youth "lock-in" with preparations for a Christian Halloween party for younger children from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 31.

The Tintinnabulators will present a concert at the church at 7 p.m. Nov. 1, and there will be a spaghetti dinner from 5: 30 p.m. to 7: 30 p.m. Nov. 6. The country fair and flea market starts at 8 a.m. Nov. 7; a concert of praise and popular music by Jolkz has been scheduled at 7 p.m. Nov. 13, to be followed by an ice cream social. There will be two icon workshops Nov. 14; a Festival of Choirs concert at 3 p.m. Nov. 15; and a renewal workshop conducted by Lee Buck of Episcopal Renewal Ministries Nov. 20 and 21.

Tent revival

Grace Baptist Church in Riviera Beach will sponsor its second old-fashioned tent revival next week.

Because of a lack of space on the church grounds at 17 Somerset Road, the congregation will have the tent set up behind the Riviera Beach fire hall on Cloverhill Road.

The revival, conducted by the Rev. Ken Cavey, associate evangelist from the Maryland-Delaware Southern Baptist Convention, will begin with Sunday worship at 11 a.m.

Evening services will begin at 7 p.m. Sunday through Friday, preceded by mini-concerts at 6: 45 p.m. by a variety of Christian musicians.

Nursery for preschool and younger children will be available.

Events planned include a children's pizza blast, youth ice cream social, singles' three-alarm chili night and family pizza night.

Information: 410-255-5616.

Teen dance

Pasadena Christian Teens, a consortium of parents, teen-agers and church leaders, is sponsoring a dance from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Oct. 9 at the Stoney Creek Democratic Club on Fort Smallwood '' Road.

"We're attempting to offer local teens a safe and wholesome place to dance, eat and have fun," said Sharon Mager, group organizer.

Red Sphere Productions will provide a light show and play professionally mixed contemporary Christian music. Games, a limbo contest and door prizes are planned.

Tickets for the chaperoned event are $5. Parents must sign teen-agers in and out.

Snacks will be sold.

The Garden Club will have a table, and neighbors will sell toys, tools, antiques and other items.

Tables are available.
