katec@herald-mail.com Nick Hodges, 28, sings and leads worship at his church in Mercersburg, Pa. He's been involved in his faith all his life and he wants to share his passion. About a year ago he read a passage in the Bible about people's eyes being open to God. Although he doesn't remember the specific chapter and verse, the message had meaning for Hodges and inspired him to act. He invested thousands of dollars in "The Awakening, a Christian rock concert" held last September in Hagerstown.

By RICHARD F. BELISLE Staff Writer, Waynesboro WAYNESBORO, Pa. - About 35 teenagers, heads bowed in fervent prayer, celebrated the opening of the Solid Rock Cafe, a Christian coffeehouse where they can hang out, hear Christian rock music and play pool.

HAGERSTOWN -- The night was cold and drizzly and the rural landscape around Tri-State Fellowship was dark, but at the back of the Cearfoss Pike church building Friday night, soft light and rock music poured from the windows of an upstairs room. That room was what church members call "the Attic," and inside, in a space filled with mismatched couches, game tables and a large plywood cross, a new coffeehouse-style ministry was celebrating its opening night. The event, called "Third Fridays at the Attic," was organized by members of Oasis, a young adult Bible study group at Tri-State Fellowship, co-organizer Luke Greffen said.

HAGERSTOWN -- It's not something you would typically find in a church. But there it was, a rock show Sunday night at Covenant Life Church International on Dual Highway. Concert lights were erected over the pews while two electric guitar players, a bass player, lead singer and a drummer delivered a heavy, driving sound in their own rendition of tunes from Van Halen, Joan Jett, the Rolling Stones and other groups. The Christian rock group ApologetiX played to about 150 people at the local church, taking classic rock 'n' roll songs and changing the lyrics to deliver religious messages.

I was born into a family where my mother's side was gifted in music. Naturally, I began to like music, but it was only through the past few years that I have grown to love music and form my beliefs on music. I believe that God put music on this earth as a way to praise him and bring honor to him, but I also believe music is used in other ways besides giving glory to God. Music, to me, is more than just something to listen to or do in your spare time. Music is a part of me. I believe God wants me to do something in music.
