Second Baptist Church's 175th Anniversary Celebration

Sunday, August 26

Abbreviated Worship Service 9:30
Service Projects 10:15 - 12:00
Picnic 12:30 Stocksdale Park




As part of our celebration of 175 years of serving our community, we have included a Sunday dedicated to service in the Liberty area. Strengthening Our Serve is for all ages and all skill levels. Childcare will be available for birth- PreK at Second Baptist, HOWEVER opportunities will be available for everyone including preschoolers at the parents' discretion. There will be projects for large groups and smaller groups and each project has at least one Team Leader. Projects with a short description will be listed here soon. Each project listed indicates an approximate number of people needed. T-shirts will be provided for each participant.

There will be a churchwide picnic, following the service projects at Stockdale Park. Anticipated start time is 12:30 p.m. The menu will include Pulled Pork (smoked by Paul Twenter), hot dogs, chips, beans, and slaw or potato salad. We will celebrate Second's 175th birthday as well as our church members who have a birthday in 2018 and their age ends in a "zero" complete with birthday cake. Bring a lawn chair, family, and friends.  Everything else is provided.

Count me in, how do I get involved?

Choose an opportunity for yourself or you and your family. Sign up in the Welcome Center or online beginning July 22. You can participate last minute but pre-registration before August 20 will be very helpful in the planning.

What will I need to bring?

Basically nothing, most projects will not need special tools or equipment. Lunch will be provided at Stocksdale Park beginning at 12:30 p.m. but you may want to bring snacks or other personal items while at the project. Hats and sunscreen are recommended for outside projects.  It is OK to wear your work clothes to worship Sunday.

What if it rains?

There will be a few alternative indoor plans if there is inclement weather. A light rain will not deter us. The picnic is a different story and an announcement will be made if needed. 

Did someone say T-shirts?

We will have a free T-shirt for each participant. If you want a T-shirt, indicate a size when you register. 

Is there a cost?

Any project cost will be covered by our Catalyst Ministry Plan. A few projects will provide an opportunity for you to participate financially if you choose.
