Tomorrow night, South Columbia Baptist Church will be filled with thumping hip-hop beats, young men rapping and praise for the Lord. Performers KJ-52, Pigeon John and GRITS will show local listeners that hip-hop and holiness can go together when they appear at the church's annual Summer Breeze Concert. "Our music is hip-hop music, rap music. It's more conscious though," said Stacy Jones, whose stage name is Coffee. "We're both believers, and our music is faith-based." Teron "Bonafide" Carter is the other half of the Nashville-based group GRITS, which stands for Grammatical Revolution In The Spirit and also reflects the group's Southern roots.

A Southern Baptist congregation near Columbia received zoning approval yesterday to build a new church and raze a mid-19th century stone house that county preservationists would like to save.The Board of Appeals said the South Columbia Baptist Church's plan to raze Moundland, a two-story stone house built in the 1840s, conflicted with preservation policies expressed in the county's new General Plan for growth.But since the county has no laws to protect structures outside Ellicott City's historic district, the board said it could neither deny the congregation a special zoning exception to build a church in a residential area nor order it to move the stone house.

"Gallop, gallop, gallop, kick!" and "Single, single, double" are the words heard in South Columbia Baptist Church three mornings a week when the Sunday school room undergoes a metamorphosis, becoming an exercise studio. This isn't just any exercise class - it's a ministry. Class members start and end each session with a prayer. They dance exclusively to contemporary Christian music, singing along because when they learn the words, their religious faith is deepened by the lyrics they are dancing to - songs such as "God Is in This Place" by Plus One, "Laying Down My Will" by Raze and "Faith, Hope and Love" by Point of Grace.

In its March 11 editions, The Sun reported incorrectly that the Howard County Board of Appeals had given the South Columbia Baptist Church permission to raze Moundland, a historic house. In fact, the congregation received permission to build a new church. It did not need the board's permission to raze the historic house on its property.The Sun regrets the error.Can a phone booth have historic value?Not usually, but when it was used to coordinate the cover-up of the Watergate scandal, you might expect someone to keep an eye on it. But the phone booth has disappeared from its once-famous perch on Route 355 in Rockville, and no one knows why.With it went a piece of Maryland's ephemeral history, perhaps trivial but noteworthy.
