Congregational Appeal Letter
“We are built together spiritually…a dwelling place for God” (Eph. 2:22)
As Second Church marks 184 years of ministry in the city of St. Louis, I love reflecting on how we as a community of faith are “built together spiritually.” For some, this phrase evokes gratitude for the historic Second Church building that has provided a place for worship, prayer, study, service, advocacy, fellowship, and hospitality in Christ’s name on the corner of Westminster and Taylor since 1898. For others, being “built together” evokes thanksgiving for a church community that has walked with them through life’s ups and downs, provided spiritual direction in a time of need, welcomed them and their loved ones into a spiritual home and supportive community, and offered a progressive, inclusive, justice-seeking Presbyterian voice in the city.
Wherever your imagination takes you in response to this scripture, the wondrous promise is that in Christ we are a “dwelling place for God.”
As you wait for this year’s Generosity brochure, I invite you to reflect on how Second is a dwelling place for your spiritual life, a place where you can journey in faith with those of open hearts and minds, a community where you can hear and respond to a call to ministry both in the church and world, and a pathway to connect and work with others in shared mission in the city. In the next few months, we will hear from fellow church members and friends what Second, as a “dwelling place for God,” means to them through the lens of our four core values: worship, education, care, and justice. Please consider sharing your reflections on this theme. I look forward to your response.
As we prepare to offer the gifts of our time, talent, and treasure on Commitment Sunday, November 20, I want to say thank you. Thank you for your generous giving that supports the mission and ministry of the church. Thank you for the gifts you share in so many ways that build us together spiritually, serve our neighbors, stand for justice, care for creation, and make Second Church a “dwelling place for God,” now and for generations to come.
Grace and Peace,
