Worship at Second is warmly liturgical, focusing upon the Word of God and rooting us in a wider tradition.
As a part of the body of Christ, we value connectedness with the greater universal church, our brothers and sisters sharing the Reformed tradition today, and with those who have come before us.
We emphasize historical liturgical tradition in our order of worship, which reflects the belief that God calls us to worship, to be in God’s presence and with each other, and to live out the love of Christ in a spirit of gratitude.
To do this, we regularly celebrate the Lord’s Supper (Holy Communion), perform the Sacrament of Holy Baptism upon request, and use weekly scripture lessons from a calendar, called a lectionary, that we share with millions of other Christians worldwide. We look forward to including you and walking with you; that together we might experience a depth in worship.

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.
Join us on Sunday:
8:00 am: This is our more casual and intimate service, where we gather around tables right outside the main sanctuary.
10:00 am: This service is held in our sanctuary, where our robed choir, singing children, and the rich traditions of our faith help us worship our living God.
To learn more about our choir, our rhythm of worship, or other ways your gifts of worship can be used at Second Reformed Church, please contact Gordon Bruns, our Director of Music and Worship.
