DEDICATION WEEKEND POSTPONED
Due to the expectation of severe weather and flooding in Houston over the weekend and the uncertainty about conditions in the area, South Main’s Sanctuary Dedication Weekend has been postponed to a later date.
Because we desire that the event would be one the entire congregation can attend, both the concert scheduled for the evening of August 26 and the celebration of the renovation of the Sanctuary and organ installation, as well as the congregational photograph which were to take place in our worship service on Sunday morning, August 27, will not take place on Sunday.
These events will all be rescheduled shortly.
As noted, while we expect to hold church on Sunday, if general weather conditions or flooding in your area remain a threat on Sunday morning, we would urge that you remain at home and join us online at 11:20 AM.
Be advised that we will send out a second email by noon tomorrow, August 25, to advise the congregation if further adjustments to the schedule for Sunday are necessary.

We are stewards of both physical and spiritual grace and beauty. We proclaim a timeless message from a temporal space, and, on occasion, that space requires our work to maintain its beauty.
Generations, our three-year capital campaign, intends to engage the congregation in the process of providing resources to invest in the future of South Main. Not only do we want to honor the space preserved for us by past generations by addressing the physical needs for repair, we also want to renovate and improve our Sanctuary and Fellowship Hall in order to better serve our growing family of faith for generations to come.
A message of grace has emanated from South Main for more than 100 years. We are now being asked to prepare this sacred space to proclaim this message in a new way for the next 100 years.
There is a pleasure and grace in casting a line out into the future. Not every generation gets a chance to do this so overtly. To imprint the future and invite the next generation to follow is both an opportunity and a gift. As a church, we are compellingly situated between a revered past and a future of staggering possibility. We’re now preparing for this opportunity and preparing to pass along this gift.
