Second Congregational Church, United Church of Christ, welcomes all people of faith or in search of faith to its work and worship.
Sunday February 21 The journey into Lent continued this week at Second Congregational Church, UCC, as we considered the rocky mountains of Fear that surround us in our time. Rev. Mary Lee-Clark’s sermon, based on the readings from Psalm 27 and Luke 13, was entitled, “Whom Shall I Fear?”
Lent Theme– What comes to mind for you when you think of “wilderness”? What are “wilderness places,” either geographical or emotional? What do you need to get through those places/times?
Lenten Series: Christian Education will offer a four session series based on four of the segments of a DVD titled “The Jesus Fatwah: Love Your (Muslim) Neighbor” which was produced by the same people who gave us the valued “Living the Questions” program. The sessions are offered after worship on February 14, 21, 28, and March 6. The same sessions are offered Wednesday evenings at 7:00 on February 17, 24, and March 2, and 9. For more information and/or helpful handout, see David Durfee.

In the Community: The kick-off February 15 to our Bennington 350.org Node Meeting grew out of discussions of Pope Francis’ Encyclical: On Care for Our Common Home. Brittany Dunn, a Vermont 350 organizer, helped us decide what we want to do in the Bennington area to address issues around climate justice. Contact Barbara True-Weber for info.
