Worship Services


February 7 - What Do You Love? How Do We Know?

In this intergenerational service with an interactive sermon, we'll take a look at the different things people care for and how that care is expressed.


February 14 - So Help Me God

On this President's Day Weekend, it's helpful to look at how the presidents celebrated by the holiday - George Washington and Abraham Lincoln - viewed divine assistance.


February 21 - The Most Reliable Thing About Love

This special Bring-a-Stuffed-Animal-to-Church-Sunday features a sermon inspired by The Velveteen Rabbit. Our guest musicians - MacIsaac and Ross - sing a song inspired by that children's book and in the sermon, we'll look at a message found in the book. The young and the young-at-heart are enthusiastically encouraged to bring their favorite stuffed animal.


February 28 - Teammates or Competitors?

Prompted by our Book Group's reading of The Boys in the Boat, this sermon considers the tension between trying to excel as an individual and trying to help a team achieve.

Chocolate Auction, Sunday, February 14, after coffee hour

The Chocolate Auction is back!!!! Once again, Second Parish will hold a short fundraiser tied into Valentine's Day. The Chocolate Auction will take place after a short coffee hour on February 14th this year. All are welcome - children and adults.  Our world renowned and marvelously witty Sean Gallagher will once again serve as the Auctioneer - so what's on offer here is great entertainment as well as chocolate. The Auction usually lasts about half an hour and you walk out of Cushing Hall with marvelous sweets for your dear ones, muscles tired from laughing, and the satisfaction of having contributed to the church, too!


Diane DeNapoli will organize the Chocolate Auction. If YOU could either bake something chocolate or buy something chocolate to donate....and then come ready to compete (that means spirit and money!) in the auction, you can help make it a big success.
