SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. - The Covenant Baptist Church in Shepherdstown, W.Va., celebrated the spirit of the Fourth of July Sunday night in four services attended by more than 800 people.
In a program combining a play, music, dancing and slides, the church honored the nation's history and local veterans.
"This is a young church and we wanted to have a way of reaching an older generation," said Terry Crawford, the youth minister who also portrayed Thomas Jefferson in the play.
The church on Flowing Springs Road was started 11 years ago in a member's home and moved to its present site nine years ago.
