web design layout - whitespace

From: Olivia
Remote Name:


I am in the process of designing a church web site. However, I do not have many pictures or text to use on my homepage (The rest of my pages I have enough content to fill the "whitespace".) I need to make an attractive opening page to encourage vistors to come back. By the way, the site is for a church. Any ideas to liven of the homepage?
