Our Sunday worship services are Sunday mornings at 9:30, with church school and childcare offered at the same hour. Second Church values thoughtful, challenging sermons, which countenance both personal faith and the imperatives of the world around us. Revs. Froggatt and Menke continually provide “bread for the journey,” usually with a liberal dose of good humor.
We also possess a sterling music program. Our organ was built expressly for the church in 1981 by local orgelmeister Thad Outerbridge; our Kawai baby grand piano brings wonderful sonorities to our sanctuary; and our Senior Choir, Junior Choir and Bell Choir regularly lift our spirits in praise under the accomplished leadership of director of Music Robert Lague.
Our Vision Statement for Worship
Worship at Second Congregational Church provides a nurturing atmosphere in which all people a re invited to honor and pay homage to God, our Creator, Redeemer and Comforter; to explore and celebrate our quest for God, who loves and cares for all people. It is an opportunity to witness and show commitment and affirmation to the wholeness of the Christian Community, as the power of the Holy Spirit promotes unity in the midst of differences. Our worship experience provides us with opportunities to rejoice in our pursuit of becoming more Christ-like in our daily lives. We are called to Communion, to love one another, to recognize our limitations and to support each other in faith.
Opportunities to meet God in our time of worship come through a harmonious union of prayer and praise, music, sermon, scripture, sharing experiences of God’s grace, our very presence with one another, ritual and sacrament. Worship nurtures our support for each other and adheres to our fundamental common goal of being together as a family in Christ. Worship is meaningful when the people of Second Congregational Church demonstrate Christ’s kindness, compassion and unconditional love, and when a significantly growing number of people who recognize the beauty and uniqueness of the Church’s greater efforts. It inspires individuals to support each other in their own faith journey within the framework of shared faith, and to welcome new members into the Second Congregational community. The worship experience inspires everyone to live more justly and generously, and moves us to serve others in and beyond the scope of Second Congregational Church.
