As the documentary shows, Carroll County’s houses of worship have not only served as a source of strength and comfort, but also have been vessels of history; some tracing their roots back over 100 years. Their loss goes beyond a simple building. It is the very heritage of their ancestors and the identity of an entire community that is at stake. Rev. Douglas Sands of White Rock Independent Methodist Episcopal Church. Rev. served as Executive Producer. The Rock of Our Ancestors will air February 8th through the 14th.
