Second Presbyterian Church
August 14, 2020
While we are not able to worship together in person, we are worshiping together virtually! Join us on Sunday morning at 11:00 a.m. for worship by clicking the tab above, or clicking on the "Sunday Live stream" button on the home page of our website,

Also - if you click the blue button above you will be able to download the worship order so you can follow along at home!
Following the Assurance of God's Love, we will pass the peace by texting one another. Choose a fellow church member, family member, friend, relative, or loved one, have their number ready to go, and send them a text that says, “May the peace of Christ be with you!"
We are in need of a few volunteers who are willing to be present on Sunday morning and run the laptop computer for our Worship Live Stream. Seth Reynolds has been doing this every Sunday since worship moved to online only, but he is heading back to school and would like a break.

If we get 2-3 volunteers we can rotate Sunday responsibilities. You do not need any special expertise, as we will train you for the job. A comfort level with technology and familiarity with computers is a big help, however!

If interested in helping out, email Pastor Tim ([email protected]).
