Events & Gatherings

Second is continuing to find new ways of being the church through events and gatherings being hosted both online and in-person. To ensure the safety of our community, we are following CDC guidelines at all in-person events to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

Gathering for Community, Connection & Communion on the Courtyard

Sunday, Oct 18, 6:30 p.m. on the Courtyard

As the weather cools, this may be one of our last chances to gather together outdoors to share smiles, words of encouragement and communion. Bring a blanket if you think you’ll need it as we listen to beautiful music, share what’s going on in our lives, pray together and break bread. We’ll be done by 7 but people are welcome to hang around the fire pit afterwards. We’ll set up a Zoom link for those who can’t participate in-person. All are welcome, and we hope to see you there!
