In the life of any christian group, or a christian as an individual, worship must be central to his being. Theologically we say that a christian or his group must be WORD AND SACRAMENT CENTERED. Our building gives physical evidence to that truth. At the very center of our building the Word is faithfully taught and the Sacarment faithfully administered.
Like giant fingers the borders of our building reach out into the neighborhood. Conceive of these fingers as part of a christian hand which gives and draws in. In these large fingers the work of the church goes on. Herein meet all the organizations and committees of the church plus organizations and committees of the neighborhood. A building, like an automobile that is used a lot, even when driven hard may get thousands of miles without service repair. Let that same automobile sit idle for weeks or months, taking only short trips and you will more than likely find, with every few miles on the speedometer, the time has come for major overhaul.
