EASTER 2020 – PRE-RECORDED SERVICE FOR 4-12-2020: Rev. Charlene C. Corbett, Pastor of Second Congregational, and Jane Wilmot, Minister of Music, created a worship service during our time of Social Distancing while the church remains closed for all gatherings. Enjoy!
RECORDING OF ONLINE WORSHIP ~ LIVE ON MARCH 22 AT 10:00 AM: Over 20 people connected online and by telephone. At the conclusion of the service there was a chance for people to “unmute” and check in with each other. It was a nice way to feel less isolated.
