This year, we are planning a different kind of homecoming Sunday.
Though we are not re-gathering in the same physical space, the fall is a great time to rally our collective energies in renewal and hope. So, it’s not homecoming, but it is Hope-Coming.
To celebrate and be together as a church community, we are planning a car parade! Your church staff & leaders will be there to greet you (at a distance) as you drive down 16th street. As you go by, you will receive a small gift, a prayer if you like, and many smiles and hellos! If you can’t be with us in person on Hope-coming Sunday, we will be streaming the parade live!
As part of our celebration, we invite you and the members of your family to take part in a community art project—and bring your handiwork with you that Sunday.
Draw an outline of your hand and then decorate as you are inspired, using whatever colors, materials, words, images or drawings you like. If you need inspiration, you could answer the question, What does faith in action look like for you?”.
You can use images or words. Decorate this as you’d like!
We will collect these and they will become a community art piece or you may see them in worship. Feel free to make more than one so other family members can be represented!
You can either bring it in person to our Hope-Coming Sunday car parade, or you can mail to the church (4515 16th Ave NE, Seattle WA 98105), or you can scan it and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org with subject “Handprint”.
And then watch this fall for the resulting community art in a worship service. We can’t wait to see what people create!!
You can also send in your community art piece by scanning it and emailing it in, or by US mail. And let us know if you would like your gift sent to you, instead of picking it up outside church on September 20th.
We are looking forward to seeing people in person on Sunday, September 20th!
