Proclaiming Scripture Workshop: 9/23 11:30

Join Leah for a fun and active workshop about reading and publicly proclaiming scripture. We’ll think together about how we can tap into our own experiences to make public scripture reading meaningful to ourselves and our audience and learn about how proclaiming scripture has served as a form of worship in the church throughout history.

Youth Group Brunch at IHOP  Meet in the Lobby at 12:30

Potluck Dinner Church – Wednesdays at 6 o’clock

Dinner Church will continue this fall.  We’ll meet at 6:00 pm on Wednesdays, and instead of signing up to provide dinner, we’ll bring food potluck-style. There is no sign up – just bring whatever you wish, ideally enough to feed five or more people – think cookies, veggies from your garden, or a new recipe you’ve been wanting to try. We know that this may mean there are nights when we do not have a traditional “balanced meal” and we accept this as part of the fun.  If you are unable to bring something, don’t let this prevent you from joining us.  Come anyway!  Write Leah with questions:

 Children in Worship

As we transition to worship in our main sanctuary, please remember that children of all ages are invited to join us in worship and have the choice to stay with their parents in the pews or to come forward and be in the supervised Prayground area between the pulpit and the first pew. Unstructured childcare is also available downstairs in Room 110 for children who do not feel ready to be in worship.

Digital Ministry for Kids

Second Church is offering a weekly mailing designed specifically for families with young children! Each Wednesday, you’ll receive an email with the coming Sunday’s Bible story in an accessible, comic book-style format and a few suggestions for discussion starters or activities. Because this is entirely online, we’re able to include friends or family in distant places – all you need is an email address!  If you are a parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, or caregiver and you’d like to be on this list, write Leah:  leahrumsey@g.harvard.edu
