Founded at the turn of the century – this century, Lighthouse Church in Maryland has been growing apace since the day it opened the doors at its original, 24,000 square-foot building. To accommodate the demand, the church opened satellite campuses and continually expanded the number of weekend services offered, but it was never enough. Thus, Lighthouse Church recently moved its flagship services to a new 74,000 square-foot building in Glen Burnie, Maryland.
