‘The sword and the open Bible symbolize the “Sword of the Spirit” as Paul refers to it in Ephesians 6:17, “And accept the salvation for a helmet , and the word of God as a sword that the Spirit gives you.” Spritius Gladius”, the words written on the Bible, are Latin for Sword of the Spirit.
Our original wood church on the present site.
Just imagine it a Christmas with a cedar Christmas tree with lighted candles on each branch.
August 6, 1871 - The "new" (today know as the wooden ) church was dedicated by Pastor Mengert and Dr. Wiliian Ebeling of Catonsville. From this date forward the congregation became known as,
"St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church."
The "wooden" church was moved (I believe it is still in use a Real Estate Office) to Savage, MD from our present location on Rt. 216 and the stone church we have today was constructed during 1932 and dedicated on January 1, 1933.
From a postcard sent out to the congregation. Which came came to me by way of Patrick Thompson.
Bell Tower Rededicated in 1958 and the cornerstone was placed in the Parish Hall wall with a “time capsule .”
The Parish Hall was completed that year.
How many couples were married that year?
My parents were among the first to have a reception in the new Parish Hall.. If you know of a marriage that year, please let me know.
August 1, 1932 (Basement in progress, current building)
