On May 1 we will continue to plan for the Mother's Day service with our Youth Music Director Nick Foster and will discuss God in Art!

Because the Mother's Day service is only one week away, we will donate to Walk for Hunger this year, but not actively participate.

Welcome to The Second Church in Newton.  We are an Open and Affirming Congregation of the United Church of Christ where we honor your questions and seek answers together.  We celebrate God's unconditional love and seek to share it with one another. We join Christians in every age as we seek to discern where God is calling us to serve in our time, and to interpret God's Word with relevance to the lives we live as individuals and as a community.  We invite you to join us in worship and receive your presence as a gift that enriches us.
