It's Sunday morning, and some of my neighbors will gather at one of the many places of worship in our community.
First Baptist Church of Crofton, located on Crofton Parkway, is the first House of Worship you see when you drive into the communty via Clubhouse Gate Rd.
If memory serves me correctly, the architecture is modeled after Bruton Parish Church in Historic Williamsburg. Built in 1968 with the help of Crofton developer Hamilton Crawford, it is located at the heart of the community near the Crofton Village Green and Crofton Country Club Clubhouse.
There's a very informative church website, and I encourage you to visit it for more information. You'll find the Church history, its schedule, ministries, Sunday School and even the Pastor's blog.
There are many other places of worship in the Crofton area, as well, and I'll be featuring them someday soon:
Bell Branch Seventh Day Adventist Church * Community United Methodist Church * Faith Community Church * First Baptist Church of Crofton * Harvest Assembly of God * Middle Atlantic Community Church * Nevey Shalom - The Jewish Congregation of Belair * Prince of Peace Presbyterian Church * St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church * St. Paul's Lutheran Church of Crofton * St. Stephen's Episcopal Church.
Additionally, military personnel who live in the Crofton area often prefer to attend services or Mass at the U.S. Naval Academy Chapel or on post at one of the churches at Fort Meade.
In 2009, I'll be taking time each Sunday to "Focus on Crofton" (which also happens to be the name of my community and real estate blog) and feature one of my many Crofton photos on Localism.com.
If relocation to the D.C. - Baltimore area is in your plans for the coming months, I hope these photos will show you what a beautiful place Crofton is to live. We'd love to have you become a homeowner in our community, and I'll work very hard to help you find the right neighborhood and right home if you choose me as your agent.
