Holding Faith, Together

Faithful fellowship. Servant Leadership. Here or there, near or far. This welcoming community of faith continues to engage and serve as the body of Christ, no matter the tide of life. In these uncertain waters especially, we remember the power of love, the power of prayer, the spirit of generosity, and the ways we live out our faith. We meet you in this season with videos and devotionals, ideas for your small group, opportunities to help and serve our most vulnerable, virtual worship, and prayer evenings – all anchored in the steadfast love and peace of Christ.

    Partnered in Prayer

    One of the ways we hold faith, together, is through the power of prayer. Intimate and private for some, collective and shared for others, prayer transcends us all. As we continue to engage our faith and care for one another, we invite you to pray. And we invite you to share your prayer needs with us, so we may pray for you. 

    • Evening Prayer Worship Service

    Thursday, 7:30 p.m., Facebook Live

    With traditional evening prayer adapted from The Book of Common Worship, this short worship service includes prayers of thanksgiving and intercession, and readings from the Old and New Testament. Led by our pastors, we hold our community in sacred fellowship united by prayer. You are welcome to submit specific prayer requests ahead of the evening, so our leaders can lift up your voice with a strong sense of togetherness. Please indicate if you'd like this prayer to be shared and read aloud, or kept in tender privacy. We invite you to join us in reverence, hope, and faith, anchored in prayer.

    • Staying Connected

    You may send emails to Together@SecondChurch.org for ways to stay connected and feel the strong sense of community at Second. You can also email us here to share the ways you are connecting with your loved ones. We are walking this road together.

    Ways to Serve Now

     

    While our church building remains closed to gatherings and activities, we continue to work with our mission partners to address the needs of vulnerable people in our community and around the world. We invite you to engage with our many missions, who serve others with compassion and love.

    Every year we join voices with others around our country and around the world to lift up the needs of those facing hunger. In this uncertain time, we invite you to learn more about Bread for the World and about how you can help end hunger by writing a note to your representative.

    Our mission work at Northside continues! Our neighbors in Washington Township are connected with us, and we invite you to share this improtant ministry with those in need.

    Although we are not conducting a blood drive at church this spring, our partner, Versiti community blood centers, is still receiving blood donations. We are grateful for this faithful work!

    The Umoja students in western Kenya are particularly vulnerable during this worldwide pandemic. We invite you to offer your prayers and words of support.
