As they professed their faith, Hector Zavala, Anglican bishop of the Diocese of Chile, laid his hands on the heads of three young people yesterday and welcomed them into his flock. The cleric, wearing vestments decorated with indigenous patterns and the Chilean national flower, was leading the first confirmation ceremony at his mission church in the United States - whose congregation worships in the heart of Baltimore County's Green Spring Valley. The Church of the Resurrection is one of many in the United States forming relationships with foreign bishops after growing increasingly dissatisfied with the perceived liberal direction of the Episcopal Church, the U.S. arm of the international Anglican Communion.

When Jeff and Donna Swope's son needed a Cub Scout badge for religious service 25 years ago, they decided it was time to join a church. The Columbia couple looked in the telephone book under Lutheran churches. The first listing was Abiding Savior Lutheran Church. "We went to check it out and stayed," Jeff Swope said. "They didn't care where you sat. Nobody had claims on your seat. And after services no one rushed to their car. They hung around to get to know you. It's still like that." Whether assisting immigrant families, sponsoring charitable projects or allowing another congregation to share its small facility, Abiding Savior has served the community for four decades.

At Woods Memorial Presbyterian Church, child care is mission.More than 10 years ago, the 2,000 members of the Severna Park church realized they could provide high-quality child care, one of the community's most pressing needs.They started a program, equipped with professional equipment and trained teachers and staff members. Today, the Child Care Development Center has five programs, from part-time, part-day care to all-day, all-week care, servicing about 225 children weekly.The center isn't free, or even cheap, but the church provides $9,000 in scholarships every year to needy families and picks up much of the tab to run the program.

For years, the vacant lot at the southwest corner of North Avenue and Smallwood Street was overgrown with grass and littered with debris. Each summer for nearly the last decade, the members of Mount Hebron Memorial Church of God in Christ had donned work gloves to pluck broken bottles and used hypodermic needles from among the weeds so they could erect a white canvas tent on the lot for their weeklong revival. That eyesore lot has been transformed into a way station for the stomach and soul.
