Denomination Sunday is a great time to decorate your sanctuary with things from the past. Instead of a banner, you may want to hang a quilt behind the pulpit. You can gather old equipment, furniture, and memorabilia. And you can gather other things that might be important symbols of our denomination and your church in particular: a replica of the log house, an old cornerstone, stained glass, an old scrapbook and on and on. This is also a time when the choir can sing songs from the Second Great Awakening. This is also a time to take up an offering for the Historical Foundation, the institution that overseas our Archives that preserves our session records, important sermons and papers and other things that need to be preserved for the next generation. http://www.cumberland.org/hfcpc/resource/dd2020.pdf
