WHO WE ARE

Our church is run by the support of our staff and our congregation.

As we seek an interim pastor to join our congregation, Sunday services are run by our Deacons.

 

We believe that God calls us to be servants in the service of others and to be good stewards of the earth's resources. 'To believe is to care; to care is to do.'

-United Church of Christ

DEBRA SUE RICHTERS
SECRETARY

I grew up in Manomet and have lived in the area my entire life--other than two years working at Walt Disney World. My husband, Darryl, and I have five children.

 

Working at the church feels like something I should have been doing all along.

The entire church family are such welcoming people, I cannot imagine ever leaving.

 

My grandmother told me long ago, ”If you dread going to work in the morning, you need to find a different job.” So true! I have been with Second Church since June 2012, and I look forward to coming to work every day.

JANE ELLIOT-COSTA
ORGANIST/CHOIR DIRECTOR

Growing up as a preacher’s kid, I was involved with church music all my life. As a teenager I played guitar and piano for Sunday School and Youth Group meetings. I also participated as a singer in many school musicals and concerts, and participated in a renowned Handbell Choir in Bakersfield, California, for three years.

 

After much encouragement from my mother, I started out as a full-time Organist and served as interim Choir Director at the First Baptist Church in Hanson, Mass.

 

From there I was the Organist at First Baptist Church in Plymouth. In 2005, I was driving by Second Church, and there was a sign on the hill “Organist Wanted” and I felt in my heart that this is where God wanted me to be. I applied and have been the Organist/Choir Director ever since.

MARILYN OZELIUS
CHURCH SCHOOL SUPERINTENDENT

I love working with children! In my professional life I am a preschool teacher, and a swimming teacher, both of which I have been doing for MANY years.

 

I have been teaching Sunday School for many years also, beginning when my children were young. I have always felt blessed to be a part of the children’s program at Second Church.

CHURCH DEACONS

When you come to worship with us, you will be greeted and welcomed by a church deacon. The deacons are responsible for the spiritual welfare of the church.


In addition to various administrative duties and care of the sanctuary, deacons take an active role during the service. You may also find them visiting members of the church community who may be sick or homebound.

If you have questions about the church, chances are that a deacon can point you in the right direction. Deacons: Marilyn Ozelius, Chris Giacomozi, Fred Harding, Jacqueline Wentzell, Nancy Stewart, Cheryl Twomey, Flo McLain, Laurie Savery and Amy Jankowski. Life Deacon is Debbie LaBreck.
