I assume you are speaking of Emily Dickinson's "Some Keep the Sabbath Going to Church". I believe that she is saying that while some may choose to flock to church on the Sabbath day, in the midst of choirs and sermons, and such, she chooses to keep the Sabbath at home, in a simplistic way with just her family. She is conveying to us that she does not need a large church service to accomodate her keeping the Sabbath, but is content to worship the Lord in her home.
