Harford Lutheran School isn't much to look at yet. There's no dedicated building for the school, its space at St. Matthew Lutheran Church is still being brought up to health and safety codes, and the office of principal Kyle Chuhran is at a different address, a short hop down Churchville Road. But that hasn't stopped Harford County parents from knocking on Chuhran's door. The school, scheduled to open this fall, has had about 40 applicants for its sixth- and seventh-grade classes -- enough that school officials are considering adding a second section of sixth-graders.

A plain white clapboard church with a three-story bell tower has stood at the entrance to Uniontown for 130 years. Several generations of Carroll County families have worshiped within its confines, baptized their infants at its marble font and buried their loved ones with prayers before an aging mural of Christ at Gethsemane. A simple wooden sign graces the front lawn and welcomes the faithful to St. Paul's Lutheran Church, promising that it is "a place where values are taught." As this small country church holds its final service today, its dwindling congregation is showing it has not lost sight of values.
