With Baptism

The Second Church is an inclusive community of curious and creative spiritual seekers, committed to learning, teaching, doing social justice and embodying a progressive practice of Christianity through loving kindness, engagement and joyful worship.


Children in 5th grade and younger are invited to begin each service downstairs in Room 110 for an age-appropriate version of the day’s scripture reading. After our time together, students can choose to remain in unstructured childcare downstairs or to come upstairs with Leah and spend the rest of the service in the Prayground. Middle school students are also welcome to start downstairs if they wish to stay with younger siblings (or even just enjoy a different version of the day’s reading).
