HOUSTON - After a week of waiting in lines for help from the American Red Cross, the Federal Emergency Management Agency and other agencies, Donna Sturken still had no idea yesterday where she will be living when she leaves the Reliant Park shelter complex here this week. But the parishioner of St. Rose of Lima Church back in New Orleans took time out yesterday morning to bring her mother and two children to Mass at the Reliant Arena. "I know somewhere beyond this there is a door open somewhere," said Sturken, a day care employee now out of work.

DEVELOPERS hurt themselves when they fail to build a relationship with residents in areas where they want to build.Baltimore County Executive C. A. Dutch Ruppersberger pointedly advised homebuilders at a conference in Columbia this week that keeping residents abreast of plans can save time and money. Better to respond to concerns while drafting plans rather after they're presented, he said.That lesson is bearing out in Anne Arundel County, where the Mills Corp. held a series of meetings to discuss its 1.4-million-square-foot shopping outlet proposed near Baltimore-Washington International Airport in Hanover.

The Rev. Darrell Baker dreams of one day building a mega-church in Howard County that will attract people from far and wide and convince even the nonreligious to give their lives to Christ.First, though, he has to face another challenge: building a church to house the 400-or-so congregants of Covenant Baptist Church, where he is senior associate pastor. That has proved harder than he thought. His efforts to develop the church's land off Centennial Lane in Ellicott City have landed him in the middle of a nasty dispute and caused neighbors to question his intentions, integrity and character.

CLARKSVILLE resident Sue Wagner is on a mission. She wants to teach the Gospel to the Korean-American children of Howard County. Wagner says that many of them are latchkey kids who go home to an empty house. Often, their parents work and are not available to take them to activities. So they watch television and play computer games, she says. Many struggle in English classes, although they may do well in math and science. She envisions a Christian after-school program, in which children can go to a church and study, be tutored and receive spiritual guidance.

Despite a compromise reached last week, bad feelings remain between Covenant Baptist Church and its future Ellicott City neighbors.Several days after withdrawing a controversial application to build a senior housing complex on their Centennial Lane property, church officials have said they instead plan to build 20 upscale single-family homes on the property -- in addition to a long-planned church and church school.Neighbors aren't pleased."Nobody in the community is opposed to them building the church and school," said Len Busso, a nearby resident.

Mount Pisgah AME Church can be proud of how far it has grown beyond its modest beginnings of 100 years ago in a log cabin near Howard High School. Yet it was not the church but Jesus who was the focus Sunday as the congregation raised its voice in praise and worship at a Christmas sing-along service. At its spacious new building in east Columbia, purchased in 1996 from Covenant Baptist Church, six choirs performed Christmas carols and songs to the accompaniment of piano, guitar and drums.

The Covenant Baptist Church of West Columbia may have found its green pastures, but not in Columbia.Pastor D. Walter Collett hopes that by 1995, he will be able to move his burgeoning flock of 500 to 123 acres of rolling, overgrown farmland north of Route 108 and along the west side of Centennial Lane.In just two years, the church has grown out of its modest quarters on 6.3 acres at Cedar Lane and Cedar Fern Court and become a well-known conservative voice on issues, such as abortion and homosexuality.

In what might be only a temporary victory for its neighbors, Covenant Baptist Church has agreed to withdraw its plans to build a hotly contested senior housing complex on its Centennial Lane property in Ellicott City.In exchange, Howard County Council members Guy J. Guzzone, a southern county Democrat, and Allan H. Kittleman, a western county Democrat, agreed Friday to withdraw a bill they introduced several weeks ago that would have removed the church from access to public sewer and water.
