Church of the Lamb on the move

ELKTON — The Anglican Church of the Lamb is on the move, literally.

The church that opened a year and a half ago in a yellow building at 315 W. Spotswood Trail plans to move into the downstairs of the old Elkton Mill Co. building by late June.

Steve and Leah Napotnik purchased the circa-1890 building last year and remodeled the upstairs for use by their business, Union Paper Corp., and others, including Cobalt Communications, Travis Dorman and as a church office.

“We owned it for six years in the 1990s and sold it,” Steve said. “We always knew the building had potential....”

Remodeling the downstairs began several months ago in preparation for the church move.

The Church of God in Christ, Mennonite, previously rented the downstairs and has since relocated to 3560 Berrytown Road, where it is in the process of adding onto Shenandoah Valley Christian School.

The Church of the Lamb is an offshoot of Church of the Incarnation in Harrisonburg.

Church attendance averages 50 or so on Sundays.

“We’re very thankful to be able to worship in such a beautiful, historic building in downtown Elkton, and we look forward to sharing it with the community,” said The Rev. Kevin Whitfield, pastor at Church of the Lamb.

The church would like to make the remodeled downstairs space — some 2,400 square feet — available for community use in the future, parishioner Andrea Dorman said.
