Adult & Intergenerational Ministries
As a church, our aim is to equip and encourage all people for growth in Christ. We do this through Sunday mornings, weekly programming, and simple community gatherings where we meet to eat, share, and laugh.
Listed below are opportunities to meet others and learn, at whatever pace you are most comfortable. Please contact Pastor Miriam Barnes (firstname.lastname@example.org) or the office (email@example.com) with questions, to get involved, or for further connection opportunities.
Wednesdays @ Second
5:30 pm, September-April
This is a time to come together mid-week to eat delicious food, enjoy each other’s company, and participate in age-specific programming (MSYG) and intergenerational worship. All are invited! Check our Facebook page for weekly for the menu.
Sundays on Wednesdays
6:00 pm, June-August
This time of worship and fellowship begins in the summer. We hold a brief worship service then gather outside for ice cream sundaes and snacks.
In previous years we have centered worship around Psalm 103 and prayer, specifically leaning into the teaching of the Heidelberg Catechism around the Lord’s Prayer.
Persons of all ages and backgrounds in faith are encouraged to join us in worshiping God, celebrating the gift of community, and tasting the sweet deliciousness of ice cream.
Parish Life Events
Celebrating the gifts of being Christ's body, parish life events allow us to grow through food, fun and fellowship. Activities are planned for the whole year, most having an intergenerational focus.
Previous program years included:
March Madness Party
Weekly Wednesday night meals
Football watching party
Parents' night out
Our weekly Spire has updated information on these events as well as an upcoming dates calendar.
Adult Discipleship & Ministry
There are plenty of chances to meet with others individually. The elders and pastoral staff would love to walk alongside you, whether in a formalized counseling session or just to connect over a cup of coffee.
Adult Second Hour
Sundays, 11:15 am
Second Church offers Sunday School classes on various biblical, theological, and ethical topics throughout the program year.
Monthly on 3rd Thursday
Gather with other women as we study God's Word in a time filled with discussion, reflection and life application. Our purpose is to deepen our knowledge of scripture and inspire one another to become the person God intends for us to be.
Second Edition Book Club
Monthly on 3rd Tuesday
The Second Edition Book Club meets monthly and discusses books of the group's choice.
Men's Bible Study & Gathering
Monthly on 2nd and 4th Thursdays
A group meets twice a month to study the Bible, drink coffee, eat donuts and pray.
A discipleship triad is a group of three people who meet bi-weekly and are committed to personal transformation through focusing on the Word of God, developing trust by speaking the truth in love, and deepening community within the larger body of Christ.
