About Us

SEC2

  • Children are an important part of life at SEC and we praise God for each one!
  • From September to June we offer Sunday School classes for all ages. During Sunday School, children will be welcomed by caring teachers who will offer Bible lessons in a fun and age-appropriate way.
  • Children’s Church takes place during the sermon portion of our worship service on Sunday mornings (September - June). Children ages 4-9 will be invited to the front of the church where they will be prayed for and sent off to enjoy a time of fun and learning under the supervision of our caring Children’s Church volunteers.
  • For those youngsters not going to Children’s Church, we have activity packs available on the back table.
  • Occasionally during our worship service, a children’s feature will be offered. This could be a story or a puppet show or an illustration; always with a message attached and always with a treat at the end!
  • VBS is an exciting week in summer where kids have a blast with leaders and other kids! Includes stories, games, songs and snacks. (This event depends on the availability of volunteers and therefore may not run each summer.)
  • Through Bible study, recreational activities, one-on-one coffee times, and genuine friendship, Pastor Chris is committed to guiding youth in their walk with God and showing them what it is to be a follower of Christ.
  • Sunday School class at 9:30 am each Sunday, September to June. The coffee is on by 9 am (Sept. - June)!
  • Growth Groups meet weekly or biweekly from September to May for Bible study, prayer and fellowship. Pick the study that interests you!
  • A Men’s Quad Retreat happens one weekend each May.
  • A Region-wide Ladies’ Retreat weekend is always a big hit.  This event is not held every year.
  • Coffee: Thanks to a few volunteers, there is coffee ready by 9 am each Sunday. Grab a cup on your way to Sunday School!
  • Meals: If you have just had a baby or are sick or have had surgery, we want to serve and bless you with a meal or two, delivered to your home.
  • Potlucks and Banquets: Our Food Coordinator works with various departments of our church to facilitate occasional potlucks and our annual Christmas Banquet.
  • Showers: Bridal showers and baby showers are wonderful reasons to get together to celebrate and offer encouragement.
  • Ushers and Greeters: This is an important aspect of SEC hospitality as these individuals offer that first welcome to our church each Sunday.
  • Decorations: Our Decorating Committee is committed to creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere for all who enter.
  • Our Social Committee works to provide the whole church family with activities that promote family unity. In the past this has included potlucks, holiday banquets, bus trips to Rider games, Corn Maze adventures, etc.
  • Each Christmas we reach out to our neighbours by sharing our Christmas baking with a note letting them know who we are and that we would welcome their presence.
  • Each June, we celebrate together with a Church Family Picnic. Fellowship, food and fun.
  • Sunday morning prayer time at 9 am, open to any who wish to join.
  • Prayer chain for urgent prayer requests sent via telephone and/or email.
  • Each Growth Group meeting has a dedicated time of prayer.
  • Prayer requests can be phoned or emailed into the office for placement on the bulletin prayer list.
  • Supporting missions around the world is a big part of what SEC is about!
  • When the opportunity arises, we welcome missionaries to report and share during our worship service.
  • Once a year we hold a Missions Conference.
  • The ministry of music in SEC involves many in our congregation who have been gifted in this area. At present we have two worship teams who are dedicated to serving during our morning worship.
  • SEC has, in the past, enjoyed putting together full-length dramas and presented them either as an outreach tool or as a fundraiser. These dramas have always been well accepted and appreciated. Short skits have been included in the occasional morning worship service. There is a spot for anyone wishing to be involved in this ministry.
  • Our Librarian does a great job of keeping the shelves full of Christian books to appeal to every interest and every age. In addition to books, there is a good selection of DVDs and puzzles.
  • We have a wonderful team of people who are gifted with skills to keep things running smoothly behind the scenes: mowing grass, shoveling snow, changing light bulbs, fixing things, etc.
