Static Front Page
This section will allow you to select a page to use as the home page template. By default, WordPress displays your latest posts on the home page, but this can be changed to display customizable widget areas. The widget areas can contain your latest posts, past and upcoming events, ministries, causes, sermons, projects, sponsors, or any other widgets available in WordPress.
To set up a page to use as a home page, go to Pages → Add New from the WordPress Administration Panel. You can name this page whatever you like, and any content you enter here will be displayed alongside the widget areas. However, it’s important you set the Template (under Page Attributes) to Home page for this to work correctly.
Using the same method, add another page for your posts, but this time do not set the template to Home page.
Next, return to the Customizer → Static Front Page. Set the Front page to the first page you created, and the Posts page to the latter page you created.
You can configure the contents of your home page by navigating to Appearance → Widgets and adding any widgets to widget areas called First Home Page Widget area through to Sixth Home Page Widget area.
