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.
