Church welcomes new minister

The Potomac Charge of the United Methodist Church (Mt. Carmel, St. Paul, and Park Head) at Big Pool has welcomed a new minister, Pastor Scott W. Summers. He comes to the church from the Piney Plains Charge, Little Orleans, Md., and First United Methodist Church in Cumberland, Md. His objective is "In order to honor God (worship), my goal is to be like Christ (discipleship) and to become an integral part of God's family (fellowship). My role is to organize God's family (ministry) to share this same faith with others (evangelism)." The community is looking forward to Pastor Scott's ministry in this area.

Did you know?

Did you know that the school board once owned Plumb Grove? It was built around 1807 on land granted in a 1752 patent to Nathaniel Nesbitt. The property belonged to generations of the Nesbitts until it was sold to Frederick Warner in 1892. It remained with Warner heirs until sold to the county board in 1967. It was given back to the people of Clear Spring after a long fight by the Clear Spring District Historical Association.
