Something does not have to be big or loud or fancy to be sacred. Holiness doesn’t rest in the décor, or formality of a place. We build sanctuaries and play organs and gather in beautiful buildings and wear nice clothes to remind ourselves of the greatness of our God, and our need for one another, not because that is where God lives.
For all of the struggles, anxieties, and challenges of this season, it has offered a lot to First Church, an unexpected gift: family time. While we are in this season, you’ll be receiving simple “Family Sunday School” guides each week. These aren’t for children, or teenagers, or adults, they are for whole families to talk about faith together, maybe in a way we didn’t have a chance to before.
