They did not do a LCT in 2001 since they were completing construction on a new sanctuary.

For more information, call (410) 749-6594 or visit their web site.

Information on their 1999 performances:

7,400 people attended the 4 performances at the Wicomico Youth & Civic Center.

Over 40 people accepted Christ!

They pre-wired their tree for a full-matrix and are using MidiLite 3'fers to combine groups of 3 blocks together to make the 3x8x6 matrix. When they expand to a full matrix, they will just trade-in the 3'fers and get the additional dimmer frames. This will allow them to expand without having to rewire or re-bulb their tree panels.
