Joint Worship with Second Baptist

On Sunday, February 4 at 10:15 am, we will once again have the opportunity to worship with our brothers and sisters in Christ at Second Baptist Church, and I can’t wait!!!  Last year was such a joy, and I know this year will be, as well.  Just like our joint worship opportunities last year, this Sunday will be another opportunity for us all to state how important it is to bridge the divides between black and white individuals and communities, to proclaim the goodness of God’s kingdom to which all Christians belong no matter which church they attend, and to stake a claim that our unity in Christ is far stronger than any of our differences.  These things are so important, in fact, that we are willing to give up our own Sunday morning gathering in order to make it happen.  We are also looking forward to October 27 when Second Baptist will set aside their usual Sunday morning routines and join us in our sanctuary at 11:00 am.

As we prepare for a joyful Sunday of worship and fellowship, I wanted to pass along a few reminders about our gathering to help us know what to expect.

Where:  1151 York St NE, Aiken, SC 29801

When:  10:15 am

How Long:  Worship is generally 1 hour 30 minutes to 1 hour 45 minutes

What:  Worship followed by light refreshments and fellowship.  We will not have a full meal like we did last year.

What about Kids:  There will be children’s church throughout worship for all elementary aged children.  There will be nursery care throughout worship for all younger children.  Children are also welcome in the sanctuary for worship.  They may stay for the whole service or part of the service and then be taken back to the children’s area at any time.  Some of our childcare volunteers will join the volunteers from Second Baptist so that all children will have a familiar face.  All childcare volunteers from both churches are background checked.  Parents will need to sign in their kids with some basic information.

What will worship be like:  Second’s praise band will lead us in worship and song, and our choir will offer a selection.  An offering will be taken by individuals coming forward to a basket, one for each church.  Pastor John will preach.

Attire:  As in our congregation, a wide range of attire will be welcomed.  Come as you would normally be comfortable in worship.

What if I Cannot Attend and Want to Join Online:  You can find a live feed of worship on Second Baptist Church’s website or on Second Baptist Church’s facebook page

We look forward to seeing you Sunday at 10:15 am!!!
