As a new community of faith there are many needs we have as we seek to share a second chance with the community. Recently some of our friends from around the region have asked what exactly do we need. Well, the leadership team of Second Chance sat down and compiled a "dream list" of all it would take to live into our mission sharing God's extravagant love and extraordinary grace. For a downloadable PDF format of the list, please click here.
If you are interested in sponsoring one of the featured items please contact either Pastor Trayce via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or speak with Dr. William Edwards in at the Regional Church Office. Remember, no gift is too small!!

- Donato's Pizza gift cards: currently we meet at Donato's twice a month for our small group, Questions of the Soul. This is a blend of life group models and bible study which has a growing population of people seeking ways to get connected to a community of faith without coming in through the traditional worship services. We end with communion which is used with pizza, wings and other menu items. Because we are trying to grow community and model a philosophy of sharing resources we don't allow visitors to pay for the meal because it is an invitation to the table-it's what we offer to the world.
