Dear Church Family,

Based on the uncertainty we continue to face with the devastating disruption to our lives caused by Covid-19, our wonderful church staff and the 200th Celebration Committee have made the decision to once again postpone the celebration of our “Our Time In History—Imagine the Future” event scheduled for the weekend of September 12-13, 2020.

We are extremely disappointed. There has been much planning put towards making this celebration worthy of God’s praise. We are concerned that we would not be able to do justice to the magnitude of this event and most importantly, that we might put ourselves at risk gathering in larger groups (even if we go above and beyond the state mandates for staying safe).

After prayerful consideration and much thought into how we should handle the uncertainties of life as we continue to face challenging times, we are rescheduling our 200th birthday celebration for May 1-2, 2021. We are committed to work as a team, and with God’s help will honor the roots of this great church in time.

Fred Anderson has completed the book “Our Time In History.” This masterpiece reflects the history of Second Baptist over the past 25 years. The books have been stored, and we want you to receive the book in 2020. Stay tuned for how we will go about distributing the books to each household.

As we stand tall together trusting God in all things, may the peace of God surround you and your families as we “Encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing” (1 Thessalonians 5:11).

Blessings,

The 200th Celebration Committee
