Church welcomes community to homecoming with fun-filled weekend

Make yourself at ‘home’ from Sept. 6 to 8 when the Second Congregational Church welcomes the community to its annual homecoming festivities, free of charge.

The celebration will kick off on Sept. 6 with a musical program from 7:30 to 9 p.m. on the Mead House lawn, behind the church. Church Music Director Alexander Constantine, Grammy-nominated vocalist Caroline Worra and vocalist and guitarist Kreg Gotschall will present From Tosca to Taylor — an evening of opera, Broadway and other popular music. Attendees are encouraged to bring a picnic supper. On Sept. 7, from 5 to 6 p.m. on the church lawn, the Bossy Frog Band will provide an interactive program for children, encouraging them to listen and participate with their imaginations, voices and movement. The band includes a banjo, guitar, bass, violin, saxophone, trumpet, piano, mandolin, flute, accordion, drums and Latin percussion instruments.

On Sept. 8, worship services are scheduled for 8:30 and 10 a.m. under a tent. The Rev. Maxwell Grant, senior minister, will preach on Genesis 1. After the second service, a barbecue luncheon will be held from approximately 11  to 12:30. A bouncy house and an ice cream truck will add to the fun.

“The church has had a great summer, with our biggest Vacation Bible School yet and a phenomenal Youth Choir trip to Memphis and Nashville, where we sang in front of the National Civil Rights Museum and Graceland, and then on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry,” Grant said. “As people return to town after all of their summer adventures, we’re excited to get caught up and welcome any new faces who would like to see what we’re like.”

In the event of rain, activities will be held indoors. For further information, contact Gloria LaDestro, church office manager, at 203-869-9311, ext. 120 or [email protected] To learn more about Second Congregational Church, visit
