The sixth annual Pet Blessing will be this Saturday, October 1 at 11:00 a.m. All owners are invited to bring their pet on a leash for a simple service of worship. Representatives from The Safe Haven Network will be available to talk with those who may be interested in finding out more information about their services. The Safe Haven Network works to find housing options for domestic violence victims by placing their pet in a foster home or shelter while the domestic violence victim stays in a shelter. A reception will follow in Fellowship Hall, with cookies and pet treats. All are welcome!

The Session of Second Presbyterian Church unanimously approved hosting, conducting and blessing same-gender marriages. Second Presbyterian Church fully celebrates the inclusive love of God for all people without exception; and rejoices in the unique commitment of two people in the covenant of marriage after receiving appropriate pastoral counseling and care. We invite gay and lesbian couples to be married in this beautiful, National Historic Landmark sanctuary, and welcome all to find a spiritual home here as part of our community of faith.
