Remembering Sept. 11

The ministers of the Pasadena Area Ministerium are planning a service to mark the anniversary of the Sept. 11 tragedy. Local Christian ministers will participate in the service, as well as members from the Jewish and Muslim communities.

The Remembrance and Rededication service will be held at 4:30 p.m. Sept. 8 at Our Lady of the Chesapeake Church, 8325 Ventnor Road. Information: 410-255-3677.

Openings at school

Pasadena Early Learning Center at Pasadena United Methodist Church, 61 Ritchie Highway, has openings in its class for 3-year-olds beginning next month. The class will meet from 9 a.m. to noon Tuesdays and Thursdays. The cost is $95 per month, with a $35 registration fee.

The school follows the general principle of early childhood education in a loving, safe and stimulating environment. It also teaches social and language skills and explores math, science, music and art as well as motor control, growth and independence.

School begins the week of Sept. 2. Information: Scarlett Brumm, 410-647-3090

Meeting, hymn sing

The Rev. Reg Barss of Magothy United Methodist Church will conduct an "Old Time Camp Meeting and Hymn Sing" at Hancock's Resolution at 6 p.m. Aug. 25. The rain date is Sept. 1.

This service recognizes and commemorates the association of the extended Hancock family with the Magothy United Methodist Church that began before 1800.

"The upstairs bedroom on the west side of the old house is known as the Preacher's Room, where circuit-riding ministers would stay on occasion when preaching at the church," said Jim Morrison, park spokesman.

The hymn sing will be accompanied by a 19th-century pump organ. The community is welcome. Those attending should take a chair and wear sturdy shoes. Insect repellent also would be a good idea, Morrison said.

The park will remain open after its 4 p.m. closing time so visitors can picnic before the start of the service. No alcohol, smoking, pets, grills or open fires will be allowed.

Admission to the park, 2795 Bayside Beach Road, Pasadena, is free but donations to help with projects are appreciated. Information: 410-255-7041.
