Worship Services

December 4 - The Opioid Crisis: Your Questions

Stephanie will welcome Annmarie Galvin to the pulpit to speak about the local opioid crisis. Annmarie, Citizen of the Year in Scituate, has worked extensively to address this issue in our area and comes prepared to address questions you have raised.


December 11 - The Christmas Pageant

Once again our children will take the lead in telling the ancient story of the Nativity. At the end of the pageant, adults will become part of the tableau as we contribute white tube socks that C.O.P.E. will deliver to the homeless.


December 18 - The Gift of “Silent Night”

This beautiful Christmas carol has touched people for years with its image of a calm, quiet Nativity. In both the story of this song’s creation and popularization and in the story of the birth of Jesus, though, we find moments far from serene. This sermon will explore the gift that comes out of it all.  We will be packing bags for the Food Pantry this Sunday.  All are welcome to join in!


December 24 - Christmas Eve Service 5:00 PM

Our traditional family service of carols and readings from the Bible tells the story of the birth of Jesus and brings us all together for Christmas contemplation. In our final carol, we dim the lights and sing by candlelight (battery-powered in the interest of safety).  This 45-minute service includes a collection for Wellspring and a reception afterwards.


December 25 - Christmas Day - No service at Second Parish

May the carols and readings from the night before linger in your hearts and grace your day.

Rev. Stephanie Shute Kelsch u
