May 18, 1999|By Nancy Gallant | Nancy Gallant,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

ST. PAUL'S Lutheran Church in Crofton welcomes the Rev. Thomas Krepps, who has accepted the call to be the church's new pastor.

Krepps will replace the Rev. Edward Birner, who has been interim pastor for the past year.

The new pastor will conduct his first services at 8: 30 a.m. and 10: 45 a.m. Sunday. The Sunday school and the church youth group have planned an informal welcoming reception for the pastor and his family for 9: 30 a.m. Sunday.

The new pastor's formal installation will be at 3 p.m. June 13 at the church, 1370 Defense Highway.

Krepps comes to St. Paul's from Emmanuel Lutheran Church in Catonsville. He and his wife, Andrea Krepps, originally are from New York City. They have two sons, Stephen and David.

The new pastor said he enjoys coaching his sons' sports teams and playing sports.

Women's club to meet

The Four Seasons Women's Club will hold its final meeting of the season at 7: 30 p.m. May 25 at Four Seasons Elementary School in Gambrills.

Monthly meetings will resume in September.

Flea market, bake sale

The Presbyterian Church Women of Prince of Peace Church in Crofton have scheduled their annual flea market and bake sale for 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. May 22 at the church, 1657 Crofton Parkway.

Proceeds will benefit the group's mission projects.

This year, you can have your car washed while you shop for trinkets or cakes and cookies.

The church's senior high youth group is planning a carwash at the same time as the flea market in the upper church parking lot. Money from the carwash will support the group's work camp mission project in June in West Virginia.

Information: 410-721-2313.

Farmers' market

Last summer, many of us enjoyed what we hoped would be a tradition in Crofton: the farmers' market in the north parking lot of the Village Green from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. Saturdays.

What a great place to find delicious baked goods, beautiful plants, fruits and vegetables.

The market returned for its second season last week, with local farmers and bakers offering goods for sale.

The market, sponsored by the Crofton Civic Association, will continue until fall.

Information: 410-721-2301.
