This fall, we’ve expanded our youth community time by launching Youth Nights — gatherings that are being held every week on Sunday nights from 4:30-6 p.m. Youth Nights are a great time outside of our normal Sunday School classes to hang out, chat, play, dream and make some memories together as a group. The time is short enough to fit within your busy schedule, and it is a great time to connect with your Second Youth family. Invite your friends and join us!
Open Book Discussion
Open Book Discussion will gather on Tuesday, November 7, at 7 p.m. in the Parlor to discuss Tales of Two Americas, edited by John Freeman. In this collection of stories, essays and poems, some of the literary world’s most notable writers reflect on what it feels like to live in this divided nation. Included among the authors is Whitney Terrell (of KC and Second families). Invite a friend and join us for a great discussion.
First Look at Second
Are you new to Second? Whether you just visited with us for the first time, or you have been visiting with us for a while, we would love to get to know you better over brunch. Join us for “A First Look at Second” with Rev. Paul Rock, Rev. Kristin Riegel and Emily Nelson Dixon at 11:30 a.m. on Sunday, November 5, in the Parlor. This will be a 45 minute opportunity to introduce you to the vision of Second. For more information, please contact Emily at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Come play kickball against Young Adults from Village Presbyterian Church on Saturday, October 21, from 3-5 p.m. We’ll play kickball and then share pizza and drinks on Second’s Courtyard. Bring a favorite fall beer or other beverage to share. Everyone is welcome!
Cooking with our Muslim Neighbors
Save the date! On Saturday, November 4, at 4:30 p.m., the women of our church will gather with our Muslim neighbors in Westminster Hall for our second cooking exchange. This event will give us an opportunity to share our cuisine with each other, but more importantly, to make connections and build relationships. Space is limited. If you’d like to participate, call Sue Storm at 913-642-3121. Details to follow.
The Open Table
Second’s new community of hospitality and conversation gathers from 6:30-8 p.m. on the second and fourth Sundays each month around shared meals, songs, and short topical discussions about how spirituality and life intersect. All are encouraged to participate, from contributing to the meal, assisting with setup of our common spaces, or leading a short discussion/experience.
