Growth in faith occurs not only through worship and education, but also through joyful fellowship with other Christians. Through fellowship with each other we also build community. At Second the spirit of Christian community is very much alive. There are small groups that meet regularly and special events and activities for all ages held periodically throughout the year. You may also wish to check out our Bible Study groups, music groups, and mission outreach activities.
Candlelighters is an informal group of women who are searching for a place to nurture their spiritual life, discuss issues of faith and get to know each other. All women are welcome. The group generally meets the fourth Monday of each month during the school year at 7 PM in the Westcott Room at the church. Contact Amy Carlson for more information.
Prayer Shawl Ministry
Knitters and crocheters at Second Presbyterian gather on the fourth Wednesday of the month in members’ homes to knit and crochet prayer shawls, baby blankets, chemo caps – things that might give comfort and care to persons going through a rough time. Everyone is welcome — beginners and experienced alike. Contact Elaine Logan for more information.
Throughout the course of the year, we gather together as a congregation or in smaller groups to share a meal and fellowship together at the Church or in members’ homes. Pancake breakfasts, Rally Day picnic lunch, Annual Christmas Party, Easter Brunch, Family cook-outs, Suppers for 7 and other special meal gatherings offer wonderful opportunities to get to know each other better and foster the spirit of community.
Mission Book Group
The Mission Book group generally meets monthly on the third Wednesday at 7 pm in the Church’s Westcott Room. The group discusses books, both fiction and non-fiction, that focus on issues of social justice and the stories of people for whom we direct our mission work such as immigrants and the poor, but whose experiences we often don’t really know. By reading these stories, we build understanding and empathy for people whom society tends to label as “other” or “less than.” Contact Rev. Jenn DiFrancesco for more information.
