The number three has a special significance at Bridgeway Community Church in east Columbia these days, one that has nothing to do with religious doctrine. While the Rev. David A. Anderson does deliver sermons dealing with the Holy Trinity, three happens to be the number of Sunday services held each week to accommodate nearly 3,000 worshippers at the church off Route 108, as well as the number of parking lots leased from neighboring industrial firms on Red Branch Road to handle parking overflow.

If the mission of the Chesapeake Center for the Creative Arts is to encourage artistic expression, the center's opening gala certainly set a good example. Some 250 guests were treated to tours of the old Brooklyn Park High School -- newly converted to hold classes in arts like dance, theater, painting and ceramics. The building's main gallery offered a feast for the eyes, displaying not only the work of some of the country's top artisans but also a bounteous hors d'oeuvres buffet. It all helped whet the appetite for music and dance performances in the building's main theater.

Judging by the amount of activity going on at Chesapeake Center for the Creative Arts, you might think the grand opening was next month rather than the beginning of next year. The center office in the 7400 block of Baltimore-Annapolis Blvd. in Glen Burnie reflects multilevel planning for a wide range of activities. Volunteer Charlene Servey of Linthicum keeps things moving, tracking dates for a variety of activities on giant calendars that nearly cover two walls. The calendars reflect the planning for fund raising, community outreach, cooperative ventures, and large and small performing arts activities to benefit the center and keep its name alive during the final phase of construction.

Instructor Laurie Berman, who has been teaching music classes to babies for 10 years, was undisturbed by the gentle chaos as she led the mothers and their chubby-cheeked youngsters through the pages of a book, showing them illustrations that went with the soothing music coming from a CD player behind her. When the song was over, Berman stood up. "OK. Do we have our energy restored?"
