Serve

The ministries at Second happen in a large part because of one thing ... volunteers. When you use your gifts and passions to serve others, it honors God and allows our church to thrive. 

 

Hurricane Disaster Relief
How You Can Help

Hurricane Disaster Relief

Second is continuing its strong partnership with Presbyterian Disaster Assistance. Recovery teams are on the ground. Second has sent $5,000 to PDA and is asking the congregation to prayerfully consider making a donation to match this donation. Make checks payable to Second Presbyterian and indicate on the memo line"Hurricane Relief" or donate online.

Second will also be sending Hurricane Buckets that contain cleaning and recovery supplies. Assembly instructions can be found below or in information racks.


Cleanup Buckets

Watch this video to see how to assemble a cleanup bucket:

 

Please purchase all liquids in plastic bottles. Send only new, unopened materials. Put all items in the plastic bucket, packed securely to avoid damage during shipment, and seal lid with packing tape.

1 — 5-gallon bucket with resealable lid*

5 — scouring pads

7 — sponges, assorted sizes

1 — scrub brush

1 — pkg. cleaning towels (18 reusable, like Easy Wipes®)

1 — box dry laundry detergent, 50-78 oz.

1 — liquid concentrated household cleaner (like Lysol®), 12 oz.

1 — bottle liquid disinfectant dish soap (like Dawn®), 24-28 oz.

1 — 1 pkg. clothespins, 48-50 Clothesline, two 50 ft. or one 100 ft.

5 — dust masks

2 pair — latex gloves (like Playtex®)

1 pair — work gloves

1 — 24 to 28 count roll heavy-duty trash bags (30-45 gallon, remove from carton)

1 — bottle insect repellant (pump, drops or lotion; not aerosol), 6-9 oz.

*Some local fast-food restaurants are willing to give pickle buckets (or other 5-gallon buckets with re-sealable lids) or offer them for a small fee. These can be washed out and used for the cleanup buckets.

Interfaith Hospitality Network

Hosting Week

SEPTEMBER 17-23
(SUNDAY EVENING TO SUNDAY MORNING)
 

It’s time again for us to host homeless families who are part of the Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN) program. Four families will be with us the week of September 17 (Sunday evening) through September 23 (Sunday morning). Willing servants are needed to drive the van, play/do activities with the children and spend the night. Your participation will ensure that we truly show the love of Christ to families in our community who have no place to call home. To sign up or if you have questions, please contact Dianne Berry at (317) 848-5715 or email SecondIHN@gmail.com, or sign up online. Please prayerfully consider giving your time to welcome the stranger with open arms and hearts.

WHEN YOU GET GROCERIES
 
Did you know that many grocery stores, such as Kroger, offer some type of community rewards program? These programs donate a percentage of each of your purchases to your favorite local organization. It’s usually just a matter of logging in to your online account and choosing the organization you would like to support. Several organizations that are affiliated with our church participate in Kroger’s Community Rewards Program, including Greenbriar Elementary School and Westminster Neighborhood Services.
 
Sign up today and help ensure that your shopping dollars help support not only your family, but our wider community.
