Second Sunday Program

The Program

Second Sunday is a program for adults with development disabilities.  The client base has grown to as many as 80 to 100 people over the past 20 years. They meet monthly, except July and August, for a time of food, fun, fellowship and education. Members and friends of the congregation donate, prepare and serve the meals and plan the programs.

"Second Sunday" November 13th - Thanksgiving Celebration!
Over 100  clients, caregivers and staff  shared a turkey dinner and celebration together.  Everyone enthusiastically participated in the activity for the day, creating 'leaves'  with their name and reasons they are thankful! The varied colors of the leaves represents the diversity of the guests that come to share in God's blessing with us every month.

Second Sunday Update – Feb. 14th Valentine’s Day Dance 2016

The Valentine’s Day Dance for Second Sunday was a big success! Thanks to generous donations from the congregation, we served our guests a roast beef dinner. There were more people dancing this year than ever and the volunteer staff did a wonderful job of mingling and dancing with guests. We received a call from one of the guest’s mothers who regularly attends with her son and she could not say enough positive things about the event. She said the food was excellent, the spirit and fellowship were outstanding and she wanted to commend everyone on what a great experience it was.   We are blessed with a phenomenal group of people that help make this all possible.


The Second Sunday Program meets on the second Sunday of each month from 4:30 to 6:30 pm .

The Program begins with supper, followed by a monthly holiday or theme activity which encourages guest participation. The programs range from arts and crafts to live musical performances to games and special dances.


Members and friends of the congregation - Santa and reindeer- work together to prepare the meal for the Christmas Second Sunday Program.
