Many churches celebrate the Sunday after Labor Day as the beginning of the new church year, and it is referred to by different names. Some churches call this
“Rally Day,” and the images this name invokes are appropriate: the football
rally the night before the Big Game which gets the team and fans all fired up;
the car rally where racers wait at the starting line for the final command to
“start your engines.”
But at the First Congregational Church of Stoughton, we call this “Homecoming Sunday.” Whether you have been coming to this church all your life or have yet to make that first step through our doors, the name suggests that this is the
place where you will find a spiritual home.
But when we talk about “home,” we’re not talking just about the building, or the people inside of it; faith is a journey of finding our way home to God. In the
words of St. Augustine’s prayer, "all hearts are restless, Lord, until they
find their home in thee."
We hope you will join us this Homecoming Sunday, September 9 (or any Sunday thereafter) to find your way home – to faith, to family, to friends, to God. No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you’re welcome here.
