Once again, I am grateful to the village at Second Pres that makes this worship service possible. This week I’m grateful …

  • that the radio broadcast is sponsored by Debbie and George Esham

  • the lay leaders who have created a socially-distanced environment for us to worship in  

If you’re still in a church-y mood later today, we hope you will join us at 4:00pm today right here on WIOI for a Vespers Hymn Sing led by the dynamic duo of Stan Workman and Justin Wiget. That’s 4:00pm today here on WIOI. A video of that service will also be available on our YouTube channel.

tumblr_p6o0udAEaj1qfvq9bo1_1280.jpg

This podcast is an audio recording (of a recording!) of our Sunday worship service at Second Presbyterian Church in Portsmouth, OH.

 

It's probably not the greatest quality, but we want to make worship available in as many avenues as possible, and that includes making it available to YOU, our podcast listeners! 

 

Thanks to the generosity of Second Pres members, while we are not able to worship together, the weekly service will also be broadcasted on WIOI (106.7 FM 1010 AM) at 9:30 a.m. so if you're local, you can tune in to hear it "live."

 

And if you're curious, you can also check in on our YouTube Channel to see the visual pieces that accompany this audio. 

 

Feel free to drop in on our website to stay up to do with everything that's going on at Second -- the building may be closed, but our mission and ministry continue! 

One of the ways we're trying to #stayconnected during this coronavirus pandemic is through worship. 

 

This is the third episode of this week's "Poetry, Prayer & Piano" morning prayer series. It's also available on our YouTube Channel, but I'll let you in on a little secret: it's just this same audio + a pretty picture to look at! :-)

 

BUT we do have a playlist of other "Morning Prayer Services" if you'd like to listen to previous episodes.
