After years of meeting with community residents, Glen Mar United Methodist Church has cleared a key hurdle in its ambitious effort to build a large new church and school complex on nearly 22 acres of Ellicott City farmland. Thanks to all that early talking, Glen Mar's ambitious plans met with little opposition from its new neighbors. The church recently won permission to apply for building permits after an appeal, filed by a neighbor, of the county hearing examiner's decision to approve the project was dropped.

After the warmth of a stirring Christmas Eve service, Bill Brandt stepped outside into the cold, huddling with family and hundreds of fellow worshippers as they grasped light sticks and prayed for world peace. "We all have to stand up for peace, any little sign we can do to show we stand for peace," Brandt said. "I think the majority of the world wants a peaceful life," said Brandt, who was visiting from Tyler, Texas, with his wife, Tandy, and son Scott. They attended the service with daughter Dr. Kerry Dunbar and son-in-law Travis Dunbar, who live in Columbia.

After they bought a large swath of land in Ellicott City for their new church in 2000, Glen Mar United Methodist Church leaders wanted to avoid a protracted battle with their future neighbors. So they held community meetings over nearly two years, trying to devise a plan for the nearly 22 acres that would satisfy as many neighbors as possible. The church has nearly made its proposal final and plans to submit it to the county in the next several weeks. The question is whether its outreach will pay off with a quick approval.

Despite cloudy skies and drizzling rain, more than 600 people attended the ceremonial groundbreaking Sunday of the new Glen Mar United Methodist Church in Ellicott City -- 50 years after its first worship service was held at Ellicott City Junior High School. "Over the years, many things have changed. But some have not," said the Rev. Anders Lunt, senior pastor. "The flame that was ignited by faith, in 1954, is still burning by faith. And a little rain isn't going to put it out." The event, which included a live band and singing from the church's vacation Bible school children, took place at a 22-acre site at Montgomery and New Cut roads.
