Recently our Missions Committee made two sizable donations to causes with great significance to them. They sent $300 to our local group, Nomads of Hope, youth groups who travel to needy areas and help rebuild homes. A second donation of $225 was sent to Adopt A Unafamila which pays for the church’s “adopted child” to attend school
We wish to express our thanks and appreciation to all at Second Congregational Church who have expressed their condolences and support upon the recent passing of my husband, Walter Kenney. It is comforting and heartwarming to have the support of so many during this most difficult time. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Due to the lack of participation in the food pantry, we will be discontinuing it as of August 25, 2021. Therefore we will not be needing any more food donations. We will donate all remaining food to the Food Share. Thank you for your past donations. The Missions Committee
