serving jesus christ in portsmouth, oh since 1875
On Easter Sunday, we had the privilege of welcoming James Burns and Vernetta Dickens as the newest members of Second Pres!
James and Vernetta come to us from the local recovery community and were initially volunteers with us through their recovery program, but NOW we call them family.
Please join us in welcoming them to Second Pres and make time to listen to their powerful stories of reclaiming their lives from addiction.
We're hosting an outdoor, socially-distant petting zoo with the BARKer Farms AND the Reptile Adventures program from Minford AND a K9 officer demonstration AND hopefully pony rides from a 4-H group! There will also be food vendors and a dog and cat themed basket giveaways AND whatever else we can come up with between now and May 8!
All this to benefit the Animal Welfare League of Scicoto County which does so much for our community.
And we want you to be there! Admission is just $1 per person and children under 2 are free.
Want to get involved? Have a question? Give us a call (740-353-4159) or send us an email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Live music is back (in a COVID-friendly way) with Jerry Martin (organ) and Stan Workman (tenor) in this St. Patrick's Day (hybrid) Concert!
Watch the livestream of our recent organ/vocal concert to raise funds for our organ preservation fund and our budding partnership with Focus Residental Group, which provides drug and alcohol treatment services for those in recovery. ("Admission" is by donation so feel free to drop something in the mail or give via our online giving page!)
Dear Members & Friends of Second Pres,
I am so grateful that while our building was closed from March until June, the ministry and mission of Second Presbyterian Church never stopped! And I am also glad that we have put strict mitigation protocols in place for our life together, especially in our worship.
We know that COVID-19 will continue to affect our individual lives and our life together as a community of faith, though none of us knows exactly how long that will last.
We will continue to provide Worship on Sundays at 9:30a.m. for friends and members of Second Pres in mulitple ways:
As always, if you are not comfortable worshiping in person, that is fine with me. I want you to make the best decision for your situation. Since what is known about COVID-19 is ever-changing, our goal is to monitor new information and alter our safety practices as needed.
Be of good courage & know that you are loved,
#sayyourprayers #washyourhands #wearamask
