He stressed the likenesses and the differences of the two builders as one built upon the solid rock and the other on the sinking sand. The work here at Edgewood was likened to that of the wise builder as we are building upon the solid Rock, our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. There was a congregation of some 250 people who assembled just west of the-parsonage to break ground for the new church building. The crowd was very enthusiastic and ready to take part in the responsive reading and the actual ground breaking ceremony. Indeed these people have a mind to work. A gold colored shovel was presented to the congregation by Mr. Gail T. Guyton, Vice President of Morgan and Keller, Inc. Smithsburg, Maryland. A three horse barshear plow was presented to be used by the congregation by Mr. Rudolph Blank, beautifully painted. The first groundbreakers were the oldest members of the church present: Mrs. Elmira Blank, Mrs. Mary Masser, Mrs. Emily Schultz, Mr. Wilfred Blank, and Mr. Oscar Schultz. The second ground breakers were the elected Officers of the Church: Elders--Howard Hooper (Building Committee, secretary), LeRoy Masser (Building Committee, chairman), Harry Fulmer, and Wilfred Blank; Deacons--James B.

The fourth ground breakers were representatives from the various organizations in the Church and Sunday School such as the CE, WCSC, CGYA, Jr. CGYA, etc. The fifth ground breakers involved all persons in attendance which included Four Generations. A long rope was fastened to the plow with the pastor, the under shepherd of the Lord Jesus Christ, at the plow. The congregation taking the rope pulled with great enthusiasm and with a great Christian Spirit. One person alone could not pull this plow, but together with the help of AUnighty God it was possible. So the Building through the faith and hope of the congregation will be built. We-are indeed "laborers together with God." The people then in unison prayed: "We the people of this church and congregation compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses are grateful for the heritage left unto us by the sacrifices of our forefathers, ask that we thy people might be able to build this they house; that it may be a place of comfort, a house of peace, and a place for worship, praise, and the ministry of thy Word. This we askfor the praise, the honor and glory of thy Son and our Saviour, Jesus Christ, the Lord of Glory. Amen."
