Sunday mornings at 8:15 and 11:00am we gather in the Sanctuary to observe the Lord's Day with joyful worship.
Our Sunday morning services are traditional in nature. We worship God by reading the Bible, responding to God's Word by singing hymns and then listening to a sermon from Scripture. Our music is classical in form, featuring an organ and a choir, and often includes other diverse instruments as well.
One distinctive of Second's worship services among local evangelical congregations is the use of traditional elements of liturgy in dialogical worship.
Worship bulletins are available online, and are a great way to get familiar with worship services at Second.
Worship as Dialogue
In corporate worship we are in an intimate public dialogue with our Creator and Redeemer. He speaks to us, and we respond to Him — back and forth — during the entire service. The “worship leaders” are actually the “prompters” and the “cupids” in this love affair, speaking to us on behalf of God and speaking to God on behalf of the congregation. God is alive and present with us, and He invites us into intimate conversation and communion.
One can also understand why our hymns and responses are carefully chosen: because they are specific responses to God’s Word to us in the pervious element of worship.
The “thrill” of worship is that we enter into intimate dialogue with the One Who made us and redeemed us.
