Second Story Project

Sundays at 3 p.m. on Second’s Facebook page

Storytelling has always played a key role in our faith, and Jesus’ parables of everyday life illustrated principles and behaviors that formed the character of his followers. As God’s children, we all have stories to tell about God’s love for us and our struggle to love ourselves and our neighbors. In this time of physical distancing, it’s more important than ever to stay connected so that we remember and do our best to embody our biggest story of all — perseverance, hope, kindness and new life — even in the face of hardship and loss.

Every Sunday at 3 p.m. we’re sharing a new installment of the Second Story Project on our Facebook page at You can also view previous stories here on our website.

If you would like to share your story, or nominate someone else to share one, let us know by filling out the online form.
