We hope that you’ll join us for worship at 10:00 a.m. on Sunday Mornings and stay for a social time afterward in our Fellowship Hall.
Holy Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of each month. All are welcome to participate in this sacrament.
Nursery care is available every Sunday, and Sunday School is offered every Sunday during the school year.

STEPS TO PREVENT SPREADING ILLNESS – FROM PASTOR CHAR: As the cold and flu season continues and the numbers of people succumbing to the flu increase locally and nationally, I wish to assure you that the church staff, Deacons and other leaders of the church are taking every precaution to prevent the spread of illness at Second Church. For the time being, we will be suspending the practice of Passing of the Peace on Communion Sundays and other worship services. We are also discouraging hand-holding for group prayer and hand shaking as we greet one another during worship, events and other programs of the church. Additionally, I encourage everyone to take extra precautions too when preparing food, such as washing hands frequently, keeping work areas cleaned well and even wearing gloves.
Finally, if you are feeling ill, please consider getting word to me or another church friend or staff member to notify us that you won’t be attending worship, events or meetings until you are better. This not only alerts me that you are not well so I can follow up pastorally but also keeps us from spreading germs unnecessarily! We can all do our part to keep Second Church a healthy space. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. ~ Pastor Char
WORSHIP 2/18 ─ FIRST SUNDAY IN LENT: Come to worship on Sunday as we observe the 1st Sunday in Lent. Laurie Chandler will lead our service. Whoever you are, Wherever you are on life’s journey, You are welcome here!
PASTOR CHAR VACATION: We wish Char and the Corbett family relaxing times and safe travels during their week of vacation beginning 2/16. Requests for pastoral support or other matters should be left on the church voice mail 563-3379. Friday and Saturday phone message coverage will be provided by Deacon Rick Hagen. Pastor Char returns to us on Sunday, 2/25.
ANNUAL MEETING: The 174th Annual Meeting of the Second Congregational Church in Newcastle was held on Sunday, January 28, 2018 following the 10:00 a.m. worship service.
An “updated” version of the Annual Report (identified by blue title page) was provided at the meeting. Unfortunately, some issues were identified that will require correction and some future action on the part of the congregation. When these issues are resolved and a corrected report is available, it will be posted on our “About/Governance” page.
