Flower Garden

After a number of years of faithfully and expertly nurturing our church gardens, David Knighton was recognized after worship recently for his “green thumb” ministry. The plaque inscribed “Nurtured by David” was placed in the circular garden in front of the church. A plethora of flowers now grow in this circle where formerly the roots of a large tree prevented …

“Not yet!”– Galatians 5:1, 13-25, Luke 9:51-62– June 26, 2016

I think it was Mark Twain who said, “It’s not the things I don’t understand in the Bible that worry me; it’s the things I understand perfectly clear that worry me.” Which is kind of my reaction to this passage which David read for us. Jesus had no home. Do I need to be homeless to truly follow him? What …

“Time Out”- 1 Kings 19:1-15a, Ps. 42– June 19, 2016

The story of Elijah’s fleeing into the wilderness, which Ernie just read for us, follows one of the many “texts of terror” that we find in the Bible.

” Love at the Center”- Ps. 5:1-8, Luke 7:36-8:3–June 12, 2016

It was supposed to be a gathering of men, eating dinner, reclining at table, talking about important things–talking about God, talking about the righteous life, talking about the future of Israel. And then she came in. How did that happen? All of a sudden she was standing there behind Jesus at his feet, weeping, with that alabaster jar hugged to …


Children’s Sunday and Outdoor Picnic

Sunday June 5 During worship, third grade students were given bibles, and teachers and other leaders were acknowledged. A picnic for the whole church family took place following worship out on the front lawn and terrace – the forecast rain held off.


Be the Church

“Be the Church” was the theme of the meeting, and it is the headline of the banner hanging in our fellowship hall at Second Congregational Church. In this day and age, what does it mean to “be the church”? This is what we proclaim: “Protect the environment. Care for the poor. Embrace diversity. Reject racism. Forgive often. Love God. Fight …
