About Us

Mark 10:45 (NIRV)

Even the Son of Man did not come to be served. Instead, he came to serve others. He came to give his life as the price for setting many people free.”



WEDNESDAY                   630PM

Our Sunday experience

At 2nd Chances Community Church we’re more interested in
getting you plugged into God’s kingdom than we are in how you
dress when you come to church.  The bible tells us; God looks on the heartnot the outer appearance.  So come as you are.  Casual apparel is always appropriate.

Each Sunday morning you walk into a friendly and loving atmosphere  where you will be greeted at the door by loving people who will
offer you complimentary refreshments that you can take into the
auditorium with you.  There you will enter cafe style atmosphere with tables and chairs in lieu of the traditional pews.

Our gathering starts with welcome and prayer followed by a contemporary worship service. After we have worshiped our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ with song we are fed by God’s word.  You will hear a practical message to apply to your everyday life. At the end of each service we always offer an opportunity for others to pray with you about any specific needs you have. 

The Bible tells us that if any of you are sick call the elders of the church, anoint them with oil and the prayer offered in faith will heal the sick.

What Drives Us
