Second Baptist Church will not gather for corporate worship or any other programming March 15, 2020. Our facility will be closed to the public and cancel all program at least until March 20.

Of course we love to be together in the presence of God’s Spirit and Grace. At this time, we are taking precautions and even sacrificing our preferences for the greater good of our city and world.
