Take A Second - April 30, 2020


"A new chapter lies ahead of us. It is a time that begs for leadership from those who are guided by the values of selflessness and love."

Rev. Chris Henry


Fellowship With One Another

Seeking a deeper faith comes with the promise of God's presence – and that of your faith community – no matter the circumstance. Even in our distance, we know the bonds of fellowship hold us close. As we look beyond not only the clichés of faith but also this time of waiting and wondering, remember that our fellowship sustains us -- and our love still grows.

FELLOWSHIP IN PRAYER, Tonight, 7:30 p.m. Facebook Live

With traditional evening prayer adapted from The Book of Common Worship, this short online worship service includes prayers of thanksgiving and intercession, and readings from the Old and New Testament. We invite you to join us in reverence, hope, and faith, anchored in prayer.

(You are welcome to submit specific prayer requests ahead of the evening at Together@SecondChurch.org. Please indicate if you'd like this prayer to be shared and read aloud, or kept in tender privacy)


"For in hope we are saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what is seen." (Romans 8:24)

This Sunday, Rev. Chris Henry will begin a three-week series called “Beyond Clichés: Seeking a Deeper Faith.” Join us online only this Sunday at 11 a.m. to hear part one: “Beyond Clichés: Everything Happens for a Reason.”


Rev. Dr. John Koppitch shared a video in March about the spirit of generosity reminding us about relational generosity, volunteer generosity, neighborly generosity, and financial generosity. Your spirit of generosity – giving in all measures – has been nothing short of beautifully abundant. To echo this fellowship in giving, a COVID-19 Fund has been established to assist with immediate needs – both within and beyond our church community – to directly support those impacted by this pandemic. You are invited to contribute to this fund if this meets your unique spirit of generosity. We are grateful for all the ways you give with such joy.


Acts of compassion and selfless leadership are all around us. Do you know someone who is giving, doing, helping – setting an example of servant leadership – in your life? We would love to honor their heart and hard work. Fill out this form and our Care Team will send a personal note of thanksgiving, prayer, and support from Second.


Our youth are meeting by Zoom Wednesday evenings; our Cherub Choir is virtually singing together on the weekend; Men@Second zoomed in for Revival; Presbyterian Women are studying God's Word – even though apart; the Sanctuary Choir (75 singers strong!) is still singing in harmony across living rooms; prayer circles are praying, and small groups are growing deeper. Let us know how we can help you find fellowship in God’s word at Second! Email Together@SecondChurch.org.


A welcoming community of faith where Jesus Christ transforms lives
