Easy Ways to Give
The important work of Second can be defined in one word: mission. Whether it’s congregational mission, community mission, international mission, denominational mission, or mission control, we are a people focused on living our faith each and every day. Now, we’ve made it even easier to support these valuable ministries.

Save time, simplify your life, and support your church all at the same time! Our Electronic Giving program is an automated program that will allow you to make contributions in the same manner that many already use to pay other financial commitments.
Here is how it works:
You authorize a specified amount of money to be electronically transferred directly from your checking or savings account to the church’s account. You also specify the frequency of the transfer.
It is fast, safe, and easy! In fact, it is less risky than checks, as it cannot be lost, stolen, or destroyed. The electronic transfer will cost you nothing. Your regular Contributions Statement will reflect your gifts for your tax records, and your bank statements will provide you with a record of transfer as additional proof of your contributions.
One simple and easy to use authorization form can begin or change your electronic contribution amount. The E-Giving Information and Authorization Form is available here or by contacting the church financial office.
The Spirit of God is at work transforming us through…
…the thoughtful conversations and laughter that bring change to our hearts and minds in small groups, book studies, Sunday School classes and dinners shared,
…the love, prayers, friendship and support we offer through difficult and joyful seasons,
…the people we feed, the camps and mission work we support, and the bridges we build with Christ’s love,
…our experience of God’s grace, perspective and healing as we gather for worship — then go out to share Christ’s transformational love with the world.
Thank you for making a commitment to our vision of transformation!
Estate Gifts and Bequests
Please Remember Your Church Family, Too
Second Church has been strengthened in its mission by generations of faithful members. Today’s congregation benefits from their past generosity. You can become a link to the future by including the church in your planned lifetime giving and estate planning. The endowment will allow Second to continue and strengthen its ministry and mission.
If Second Church has stood with you during times of joy and sorrow, you have an opportunity to help continue its vital ministry. A gift to the endowment is a lasting legacy. By remembering your church family, you can be remembered by future generations.
The major endowment funds are Operating Reserve, Capital Reserve and Special Mission Fund. An undesignated gift will be divided among these funds. In addition to miscellaneous special purpose funds, there are three funds available – Adult Programs Fund, Worship and Music Fund and Children and Youth Programs.
