Mission & Advocacy


Second Church is very pleased to be able to help support the Newton Food Pantry.

The items most needed are: Oil, Canned Beets, Ground Coffee, Soy Sauce, Spices, Soup and Chicken Broth, Shampoo and Conditioner, Toothpaste and Toothbrushes, Dish Soap, Body Lotion, Laundry Detergent, Bar Soap, and All Purpose Household Cleaner. Place your donations in the Sunday offering basket or the downstairs lobby basket. Items are then delivered to the Newton Food Pantry in the basement of city hall.

The Newton Food Pantry is the only food pantry in Newton that delivers to clients who are homebound. Though housed in Newton City Hall, the Newton Food Pantry is an independent, all-volunteer nonprofit organization that receives no direct funding from the city, state, or federal government. They rely exclusively on donations of time, food, and money from individuals, businesses, religious organizations, and grant-making nonprofits. Second Church donated five bags of groceries to the Newton Food Pantry during this past summer.
