“Church is the family of God here on Earth,” says Clower. “God loves us so very much, and wants us to be part of His family too!”

After a new family attended her church and children’s discipleship class, Sarah Butler Clower wanted a way to explain exactly what all the stuff going on around them meant. “Emily Goes to Church” (published by CrossBooks) is her simple story to help not only them, but anyone who has ever wondered what goes on in church.

The story follows Emily as she accompanies her friend, Matt, to church. With every turn of the page, readers see, through Emily’s eyes, the fun and exciting world of a churchgoer as they learn about Jesus in Bible class and sing hymns about God’s love in the sanctuary. In the end, Emily learns about God’s love for her and becomes a believer.

An excerpt from “Emily Goes to Church”:

“Next it was time to go to the worship service. Matt led the way into a big room where lots of people of all ages and colors were gathering. The people were hugging and talking with each other. ‘It looks like a big family reunion here,’ Emily thought. The service started and everyone sang songs to God. Emily didn’t know the songs, but she started catching on pretty quickly as she read the words. Emily liked the songs.”

“Church is the family of God here on Earth,” says Clower. “God loves us so very much, and wants us to be part of His family too!”
