Wednesday Nights @2BC

 

MID-WEEK MUSIC

Second Baptist Church has a strong tradition of music, and our adult music groups rehearse on Wednesday evenings. 

SANCTUARY HANDBELL CHOIR 6:15 p.m. in the Music Suite, Room 501.  Handbell choirs lead in worship by playing preludes and offertories and accompanying the congregation and various choral groups. 

SANCTUARY CHOIR 7:15–8:30 p.m. in the Music Suite, Room 501  The Sanctuary Choir offers a focal point for many adults (ages 18+) wishing to find a place of ministry at Second Baptist Church. 

BEGINNING HANDBELLS: 4th and 5th grade 6:00 – 6:30 p.m. in Room 502 

To join any of the music groups, simply come to a rehearsal!

 

Join your church family in taking a mid-week breath. Slow down your week and find a place to belong. Eat a meal, have a conversation, renew, turn off the technology, and just pause and reconnect with Christ. Practice His presence with us.

SECOND SESSIONS  | 6:30-7:15 p.m. 

Spiritual development opportunities for kids to adults.

Adult Classes Beginning September 27 through October 25

Bible study option: Deuteronomy led by Wil Mellone in room 304-05.

“A lost treasure for large segments of the modern world, the book of Deuteronomy powerfully repays contemporary readers’ attention. It represents Scripture pulsing with immediacy, offering gripping discourses that yank readers out of the doldrums and back to Mount Horeb and an encounter with divine Word issuing forth from blazing fire.” (Reading Deuteronomy, A Literary and Theological Commentary, Stephen L. Cook: Smyth&Helwys) There is an intimacy with God found in Deuteronomy that stirs a deep longing for God and person-centered community. Wil is a lay student of the Old Testament, and this book is among his favorites. Don’t miss his insights and bring your own!


Spiritual Growth option: Anonymous by Alicia Chole led by Jacque Stouffer in room 303.

Remember our Holy Week Lunch speaker earlier this year? This is her next book that she is currently touring and teaching internationally. Amazon describes this book in this way: “We all experience times of hiddenness, when our potential is unseen and our abilities unapplauded. This book redeems those times by reminding us that though we often want to rush through these anonymous seasons of the soul, they hold enormous power to cultivate character traits that cannot be developed any other way!” Jacque is a returning Second Sessions leader out of popular demand!


Spiritual and emotional health option: Boundaries in Marriage by Cloud & Townsend led by Brenda Burris Chouris in the Oak Room.

We continue the Boundaries series. “Two lives becoming one: that’s the marriage ideal. But maybe you’ve discovered that it’s easier said than done. That’s why boundaries—the ways we define and maintain our sense of individuality, freedom, and personal integrity—are so important. And it’s why the principles described in Boundaries in Marriage are essential if you want your marriage to flourish.” Brenda is a licensed counselor and has a practice out of her church in Kearney, MO. She has a ministry and public education background which enhances what she brings to her care for others through her practice.


Service option meet in the Old Library

WATERSHED (Grades 9–12)  6:30-7:30 p.m. | Charles Smith's house | 429 Wilson St.

Watershed is a time when important change happens. We’ll discuss, challenge, and consider what a Christ-centered life feels like, looks like, and how it manifests in our daily lives.
