The county Board of Appeals approved yesterday a variance to allow a Brooklyn Park church to build a 164-seat sanctuary at Hammonds Lane and Trillo Avenue.The board voted 5-2 to grant the variance to Christian Bible Church, ruling it would be consistent with other development in the neighborhood, which has a Lutheran church, a nursing home and two medical clinics.Northern Anne Arundel County is nearly fully developed, and it would be difficult for the church to find other land, the board said.

Some of the pieces resembled enormous wooden kazoos. Others looked like oversized vacuum cleaner tubes. But to the crowd assembled on the lawn of the Severna Park church, each of the thousands of oddly shaped segments was created to do one thing: evoke the voice of the divine. For nearly two decades, the parishioners of St. Martin's-in-the-Field Episcopal Church in Severna Park dreamed of hearing pipe organ music in their sanctuary each Sunday. A few years ago, they started raising money - to the tune of nearly half a million dollars - and ordered an organ to be custom-built for the church.

Construction workers are to start laying the foundation for the $170,000 building this week. Church members hope the job will be finished by Christmas."We just put our money together, paid tithes and trust God to work it out for us," said the Rev. Theodore Watts, pastor of the small congregation that has met in the building since the 1940s.

Musical notes whispered and chords shouted through the cream-colored sanctuary of St. David's Church in Roland Park yesterday as more than 1,000 organ music fans gathered for the 25th annual Baltimore Bach Marathon. Some attended for a short while, others stayed the entire 7 1/2 hours listening to the concertos, preludes, arias and fugues written by the 18th-century German composer who died 250 years ago. "I love Bach," said the Rev. Bruce Wickkiser, a retired Episcopal priest, who with his wife, Mary Jane, traveled from Glen Arm and stayed for an event that lasted from 12: 30 p.m. to 8 p.m. "Many people have said we are gluttons for punishment," Wickkiser said three hours into the program.
