The church is gearing up for Easter and has already had quite a week.
Holy Week is heading towards its culmination on Sunday, and the week has been filled with activity at Asbury United Methodist Church in Arnold. Palm Sunday featured a service with church members dressed in characteristic robes while carrying palm branches. There was also a demonstration for children on the importance of Palm Sunday, and they later made Easter crafts. On Thursday, members of the congretation reenacted the Last Supper in robes. The complete gallery of Holy Week events is available on Asbury United Methodist Church's website. Do you know where you're spending Easter Sunday? I've created a full listing of Holy Week activities in Broadneck to help plan the weekend.

According to Jack and Barbara Hogsten, Feb. 14 is just another day to say "I love you."
Longtime Arnold community fixtures Jack and Barbara Hogsten will share their 59th Valentine’s Day together this year, but Jack said he tries to make every day special—not just Feb. 14. Before my interview with the couple, I had written down the wrong street address and ended up a few blocks down. I introduced myself to the stranger there, who kindly but tersely explained to me that I was at the wrong house. I then asked if she knew the Hogstens, and suddenly her demeanor changed. “Well, of course,” she replied with a smile, and then directed me to a house a little way up the road. When you live in a close-knit community like Arnold all of your life, it seems there are no strangers. The Hogstens are the quintessential Arnold couple. They …

“Project McGrow” to Help with Mill Creek Restoration
Alexanna Page would like to be able to go canoeing with her friends in the summertime on water that is blue, not “chocolate brown.” The Broadneck High School sophomore lives in Divinity Cove on the shores of beleaguered Mill Creek. “The water’s often really gross. You can’t go swimming for two days after it rains. At the moment the water is like chocolate brown,” she said, due to recent rains. Page, 15, decided to harness the power of underwater grasses to help restore the health of the waterway, and she’s pulled together a team of 25 volunteers to help her. She plans to use “Project McGrow” to earn her Girl Scout Gold Award. On Friday, a steady stream of volunteers who signed up to grow wild celery from seeds in their homes stopped by the…

Church is recognized for its restoration efforts on Church Road.
If you ever drive through Church Road, you see the lovely white chapel sitting on the hill before the turn to Arnold Elementary School. It’s a beautiful site, and the Arnold Preservation Council recently thanked Asbury United Methodist Church officials for their efforts to preserve that setting for local residents. Established in 1859, the church has been active in community life on the Broadneck Peninsula for more than 150 years. The original church structure that forms the nave of the historic sanctuary was built in 1888. In 2003, the historic sanctuary was completely renovated and major parking expansion and site improvements were made in 2007. The Arnold Preservation Council, formed to enhance and preserve the area’s rural heritage …
