The beginning of April has us continuing to celebrate Eastertide season at Second Baptist Church with many activities and services to participate in.

Opportunities for strengthening and sharing our faith and Biblical knowledge occur through several small group opportunities:

  • Beginning Sunday, April 7, 9:00 a.m. – Meditation, Reflection, and Prayer. This is a quiet time for individuals to come together to meditate, read, journal, and pray – an opportunity to “try out” individual spiritual practices, but surrounded by others providing communal support.
  • Special Needs Fellowship – Monday, April 8, 6:30 p.m. This is an outreach program for our friends with cognitive limitations to give them a safe environment for crafts, singing, and fellowship.
  • Soup Kitchen Ministry – Saturday, April 13. Serving a meal for anyone in need at the Loaves and Fishes Soup Kitchen at South Congregational Church in Springfield, MA. If you would like to participate, please call the church office at 860-668-1661.
  • Pub Theology – April 24, 6:00 p.m. at Three Figs Restaurant. This is a space to dive deeply into topics involving faith, meaning, identity, culture, politics, and more! Come bring your questions, and your curiosity, and pull up a chair. Be ready to engage with people of varying religious traditions, philosophical perspectives, and life experiences.

Every Sunday morning worship is at 10:00 am. Special services include:

  • April 7. We welcome The Hot Cat Jazz Band as they will lead the music during the worship service. Following the service will be a “Sub Sale” fundraiser to benefit the Music Ministry.
