Second Church of Plymouth is located in the village of Manomet in Plymouth, Massachusetts.
We are a welcoming, inclusive congregation. People often describe a feeling of
warmth and acceptance when they walk through the doors of our church.
We practice the sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion.
Second Church of Plymouth is a member of the National Association of Congregational Christian Churches (NACCC) and the Massachusetts Association of Congregational Christian Churches (MACCC).
Who we are
We are a Congregational church, following in the tradition of our Pilgrim ancestors in faith. We uphold their conviction that Believers are to gather in local churches, which are to be free from the control of any outside authority or hierarchy. As such, we take our direction from the Bible, especially Jesus’ teaching that where even two or three are gathered in His name, He is in their midst.
STATEMENT OF FAITH
Called by our Lord Jesus Christ to be God’s Witnesses in this time and place, we respond in covenant as the Second Church of Plymouth:
We agree to gather as one congregation of God’s people and commit ourselves to the service of Jesus Christ, to seek our God and share what we find, to care for each other in Christian love and extend that care to those beyond our fellowship.
Through our study of the scripture and the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we trust that God will enable us to keep our covenant.
WHO WE ARE
Our church is run by the support of our staff, including trustees and deacons,
and our congregation.
“About 16 years ago my wife Susan mentioned to me, “There seems to be something missing in your life.” That something was going to church. I started to attend The Second Church of Plymouth in Manomet and have been there ever since. I found a wonderful congregation of people. God centered! I joined Second Church and have been a member ever since. I found that Love God and Love Your Neighbor were first and foremost in this church.”
-Roy J. Zahreciyan
“For 24 years, the Second Church folks have been there for me, through the good times and bad. We’re not perfect (we’re all a “work in progress!”) but second church is my second family. I feel I always have an ear to bend and a shoulder to cry on if needed. Blessings.”
“I like coming to Second Church because it feels like a family, very cozy and friendly.”
Second Church’s history is intertwined with the history of Manomet village and the original Church of the Pilgrims. The history of our ministry is rich in diverse.
