We Welcome You!

No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey,
you are welcome here!

Second Congregational Church of Winchester


Over 2,000 pumpkins and gourds will arrive by 18-wheel tractor-trailer on Saturday, Oct. 15. Our Pumpkin Patch will open for business on SUNDAY, OCTOBER 16! Come one, come all!

Patch hours:
Mon – Fri     2:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Sun                12:00 pm – 5:00 pm

at the Pumpkin Patch!


Kids with life-threatening food allergies are often left out of Halloween activities. But if you see a Teal Pumpkin at a home or business, you know that non-food trick-or-treating surprises are available. On Sunday, Oct. 30, our Teal Pumpkin will be out and all neighborhood kids are welcome to come “trick or treat” at the Pumpkin Patch — including, especially, our young friends with food allergies.

Sunday Oct. 30, Noon – 5:00 p.m.
Costumes highly encouraged,
cameras practically required!

Worship at Second Congregational Church:

We’re trying an experiment this year. On the first three weekends of the month, we will gather for worship at 10 a.m. on Sunday. But on the fourth weekend, we will gather for Dinner Church on Saturday evening at 6pm. There will not be a Sunday worship service at the church on the fourth Sunday; rather, we are encouraging one another to observe Sabbath in the ways we find most meaningful. We hope you’ll try this experiment with us!

Church School for Children:

Another experiment for us is to have Church School for Children during the 10 a.m. worship hour. They will begin in the sanctuary, and then go to their class following the Children’s Message (at about 10:15 a.m.). We have an exciting new curriculum and we’re thrilled to give it a whirl!
