“Second Congregational Church, UCC celebrates the Second Sunday in Advent this week, beginning with worship at 10 o’clock on Sunday morning. We light the Second Advent candle—the candle of Peace—as we share signs of hope observed throughout the week. Following this Time for the Children in All of Us, children up through grade 5 are dismissed for Godly Play and the Middle- and High-school Class gathers. Nursery care is provided throughout worship. Rev. Mary Lee-Clark’s sermon, based on the readings from Isaiah and Mark, is entitled, “In the Wilderness…Cry.” All are then invited to participate in the Sacrament of Holy Communion.
A time of fellowship and refreshment for the whole church family follows in Webster Hall. Opportunities for Alternative Gift-giving from Heifer Project International and Lucy Lights are available, and Giving Tree Gifts are welcome.
Second Congregational Church welcomes all people of faith or in search of faith, without regard to age, race, sex, economic condition, disability, or sexual orientation. Our building is located on Hillside St. and is wheelchair accessible. For further information, contact the church office at 442-2559 or see our website at www.bennscc.org
