Serve with Second

As people of faith, we share our time and resources with others in our church, community, and world. Christ calls us to reach out to those in need and spread the Good News of the Gospel. We are also called to engage in faithful work as disciples and leaders – work that advocates for right where we see wrong, work that energizes our faith and deepens our understanding of scripture, and work that acts on our beliefs. All of this and more are ways we serve as the Body of Christ.

If you would like to explore how to share your gifts with our mission partners, please contact Rev. David Berry.

We invite you to serve with Second today!

    Music & Fine Arts

    The choirs and ensembles of Second Church are both instruments of worship, service and small group ministries that address the needs and interests of members and their families. While upholding the tradition of Reformed worship, musical integrity and excellence of Second Church, music enhances the worship experience of the congregation and the outreach of the church by conveying through multiple art forms the joy and power of the transformational life and message of Jesus Christ.

    We invite your musical gifts into this ministry!

    The Creation Care Ministry Team endeavors to encourage, equip, and sustain individuals and groups within the congregation, who feel called to utilize their own unique talents, skillsets, and interests to experience the benefits of creation care for our health and for the wellbeing of all of God’s creation.
