Month of July
One Combined Service at 9:30.
Attend in-person or livestream .
Friends,
 
                Context determines meaning. Namely, we each have different experiences with anything. In this season especially, I try to let this inform my prayers. Some have lost loved ones and not had funerals. Some have lost vacations. Some have lost employment. Some struggle to live. While others have had funerals, have been on vacation, have turned a profit and still others have welcomed new life. Although we are all in this together, we each have a unique position and posture. Because of this reality, I believe it is all the more important for us to bend towards grace. 
               Church attendance in the western world has been changing dramatically in the last 20 years (click Pew Research to see more). I believe that what we are experiencing through this pandemic will continue to morph the concept and practice of attending church. 
               At this time, although things could change at any moment, our Vision Leadership Team have discerned to continue gathering for worship on Sundays in an extremely careful way. We have no timetable for any other ministry programs. I want you to know that we encourage you to stay home and to regard your safety with the highest priority. Consider gathering for worship through our live stream at secondb.org or maybe worship with your family in your own way. For those who come in-person, we pray for you. For those who stay home, we bless you. Wherever you may, I do encourage you to connect with one another: call, write, drive by or send a carrier pigeon. In all things we ask for God’s unending grace. 
               
Peace of Christ to you,
 
Jake Maxwell
