Rev. Barbara Kershner, Interim Pastor

Thank you, Barbara, for your loving leadership and  care  for the past three important years at Second Congregational Church. You have gone the extra mile for all of us, and we are grateful!

Our new youth-led praise team “Jubilate Deo” or “J.D.” debuted on March 11th. They were fabulous! In a rotating leadership,

each of the young people in J.D. will take turns

choosing the music and leading the praise

two Sundays every month. With their beautiful voices,

J.D. members aim to be powerful witnesses to God’s love in our lives.

​— Music Notes —
The adult choir is looking for more members! We are very happy to welcome part-time members or occasional members. Rehearsals are on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 and Sunday mornings at 8:15. But if you can't make it to Wednesday rehearsals, feel free to just come on Sunday mornings! Or just visit once to see what it's like. Singing in our choir is lots of fun and it's good for your health, too!

To the members of the Second Congregational Church

 It is with deep regret that we must accept the resignation of Rev. Barbara Kershner as of August 1, 2019.  She has served steadfastly for this congregation for almost three years, providing her talents for spiritual leadership, as well as attending committee meetings, overseeing the care of the church property, being a welcoming ambassador to any newcomers or visitors, and always spreading joy and good will in her daily life.

Barbara, as we all call her, has traveled many miles to attend our church regularly in spite of weather, and has gone the “extra mile” to visit the sick and bereaved among us.  She has a positive viewpoint for the future of our church, and is hopeful of our continuity. 

It is truly a shock to think of the departure of Barbara, who has become a vital part of our “family.”  We understand that she’s entitled to more time for her own life, after giving so much of that life to us.

We wish you all the happiness you deserve, Barbara, and we hope your future years are filled with whatever your heart desires.

 Your loving membership,
