Congregational Communities

Congregational Communities, also known as Sunday School classes, are like little families within the big family of Second.

We encourage every member to get involved in the CC of their choice, and there is a wide variety of classes to appeal to various age groups and stages of life. It's the best place to get to know others and to get involved in our ministries at Second. 

CCs meet from 9:45 - 10:40am in various rooms across the entire campus. All our CCs offer Bible study and fellowship in a small group setting.

There are more than 20 adult classes offered for a variety of age groups and stages of life. Youth and Children’s classes for all ages are taught with caring, spiritual instruction, and a Special Education class is offered.
