As we enter this new year, our Christian calendar marks a dramatic turn in the life of the new born child: the Day of Epiphany. Known popularly as the “12th Day of Christmas,” on January the 6th we celebrate the arrival of the Magi, or wise men. They have come to see God’s love “made visible” (epiphany). The season of Epiphany, then turns to the subject of Jesus’ life, specifically, his three year ministry here on earth.
The three gifts presented by the Magi carry a spiritual meaning: gold as a symbol of kingship on earth, frankincense (an incense) as a symbol of presence of deity, and myrrh (an embalming oil) as a symbol of death. He has come once again, to make God’s love visible to all of us. We celebrate the birth of one who can rule our hearts with God’s ever-present love, right through and beyond death itself. Our Christmas prayer: “Guide us to thy perfect light.”
We, the Second Congregational Church, are a caring Christian family united in God's love, providing a spiritual home for all seekers and proclaiming the Good News while living and acting out our faith.
The center of our Church life is our time of worship together. An atmosphere incorporating both a sacred and uplifting spirit is our tradition. Our music program is an active, integral part of church life and worship. Special services are shared throughout the year.
