About Us

Some years ago, I ran across some words of Ann Weems.  I'd like to share a few of her words with you:


1.

 "I celebrate the church of Jesus Christ, where two or three or thousands can gather in the Lord's name.  And touch this world with the amazing good news that somebody cares, that God joins us in community so that someday this world will be loved to wholeness.     

I celebrate this community, where the people say YES in the face of NO,  where they light candles in the darkest night, where healing and compassion leave no time for self-righteousness, and the life sustaining love of Christ is evident in the life of believers.  

I celebrate the church, where we dare stand up, where risk runs rampart, and you and I and all Christ's disciples are called upon to follow even when it costs us something...

I celebrate the church, where we are called from half-heartedness to commitment.  Commitment to a God who calls us to change our direction, to be reborn to a way of life where others are significant."   (Reaching for Rainbows", Ann Weems)

2.

 

     I read her words and it hit me.  She's describing Second Reformed United Church of Christ!  And I united my voice with hers as I celebrate the church - especially Second Reformed UCC.

I celebrate Second Church - and the vision of The Reverend Doctor Jacob Leonard to build a new church in East Lexington.

I celebrate Second Church - I lift up the tenacity and energy of our founding fathers and mothers.  Even now we stand upon their shoulders.

I celebrate Second Church - where every child of God is hailed as unique and valuable.  

I celebrate Second Church  - where the tired, disillusioned world is invited in and surprised by the words, "God loves You!"

I celebrate Second Church - that sent nine of its young men and women into full ministry:  The Rev. Dr. G. Melvin Palmer, The Rev. Dr. Billy Joe Leonard, The Rev. Don Leonard, The Rev. Rex Dobey. The Rev. Robert Disher, Jr., The Rev. Richard Kirk, The Rev. Eric Disher, The Rev. Clara Benson, and the Rev. Maria Yokum.

I celebrate Second Church - whose supportive community holds us when we're tempted to give up, enfolds us when we're hurting, affirms us, reaches out to us, gives to us, receives from us.


(The preceding was written by the late Rev. Jerry Moore, who served our church for over 10 years,  for our 100th anniversary album printed in 2004. Jerry passed away on Tuesday, August 22, 2017)
