Outdoor laser show
We are so excited to be able to present the story of Easter in a truly unique way – through an outdoor laser show projected onto a 25 foot screen! “Easter is for you” tells the story of Easter and why it matters to every person. Each Friday and Saturday night in April, we will share this amazing story through the awesome medium of a laser show.
Lasers are amazing, but the story is even better!
In this unique format, we’ll provide the deeper meaning behind the day that many people only know as a holiday about candy and gifts. Grounded in a historical event that changed the world, Easter is the story of God’s love for all people. It’s the story of a love so strong that no power would stop it. A story of rescue, redemption, and reconciliation that our culture needs today.
Second Baptist is shining the story of Jesus into the community for all those who need to hear its truth
So many people are searching for their identity and for meaning in their lives. Jesus died and rose again so that each person could find their identity in Him, so that no one would ever have to wonder who they were, or whether they matter. Jesus died for each of us – we are all cherished and valued, beyond anything we can imagine. Jesus eagerly awaits for every one to accept Him. So, we are telling His story in a way that everyone can know that Jesus loves them. It is our hope that this laser show makes it clear that anyone can turn to Jesus and find forgiveness, reconciliation, and everlasting life.
Easter is the story of how this is all made possible in and through Jesus. Easter is for everyone. Easter is for you.
Easter is for You is an outdoor event, so please bring a chair or blanket to sit on. The show will last about an hour, and start each night at dark (about 8:30 PM). We ask that you bring no pets, food, or other items which would be inappropriate for a church environment. Please, no photography or video of any kind as the show is copyright protected. Keep informed on the latest by following us on facebook!

We recently celebrated all of the people who make it possible for Second Baptist to exist. It takes a lot of help to be a church, and we are blessed with a great group of people who serve the Lord in our community. All manner of recognition that is shown now will pale in comparison to the day when our Lord recognizes all of those who have lived out their gratitude in service to Him (Romans 12.1).
Until that day, we can do our best to tell people that they matter, that what they do matters to us, and most importantly, thank you. We wouldn’t be much of a church if the pastor didn’t preach or the choir didn’t sing, but it could be argued that if the trash didn’t get taken out, we wouldn’t be much of church either. In other words – there are no small jobs, no unimportant tasks.
Often left unsaid, is that service often comes with a burden. Sometimes that burden is a question – “Does what I do matter?” So, we do our best to help everyone who serves at Second Baptist to have a clear answer – “YES!” If we forget to express it from time to time, or seem to take it for granted, please know that each one of you that serves in our church is appreciated. We are here because of you.

We welcome you to rediscover a church experience that is as old as our faith, harkening back to the small, intimate gatherings that Paul describes in Romans 16. Instead of a traditional service, we study God’s Word together in a relaxed, encouraging atmosphere that centers around a devotional of 30 minutes or so.
We have a comfortable atmosphere that is focuses on the text itself. These are smaller studies than you find in a typical bible study or Sunday School, and they are meant to encourage you to explore the passage in your own personal devotions.
We thought we would catch everyone up on what has been going on in AWANA up to the halfway point this year. We have been blessed with new teachers, some new equipment, and lots of new faces. We have made several changes to the curriculum and the format of our program this year as well.
We changed the opening ceremony in order to incorporate more worship and to allow us to have a devotion time that gives an opportunity for leaders and students to share a devotion. We hope it is an chance for those who felt led to be able to grow in their gifts.
There are many new faces in Sparks this year, and we are excited to see that class grow. Mrs, Debbie is doing a wonderful job with this class!
TNT has some new faces as well, and one of those faces belongs to a new teacher! Eddie and Dawn have done a great job of really helping TNT students internalize the scriptures that they are learning.
Journey is using a new curriculum this year that is designed to encourage discussion and engagement. Mrs. Beth is also getting some help from Ashley and Jeff – and she needs it, there are lots of new members to the class!
Game time has been changed up a bit too – Ashton is now our games director. She brings lots of new creativity to the games.
While there are many changes to our program, the goal remains the same – to help kids grow in their walk with Christa and learn the scriptures. We are looking forward to 2017! Merry Christmas!
One Hundred Years!
We started out on the other side of town as a small church for the local mill. In fact, that was our original name, the Mill Village church. The sound of our bell would ring out each Sunday, inviting people to come in for worship and preaching. Today, we don’t ring a bell, but our invitation still echoes out into our community through the people who make us the church that we are today.
We are so blessed to be a church with a legacy that has brought us into our 100th year! God has been good to us through these years, and we look forward to many more!
Some of our youth dressed up in period costumes to help us recognize just how much has changed in the last century. The good news is the we are still a church that glorifies God, honors His Word, and Worships Jesus. We do our best to live out our faith in this community.
Dr. Mike Bagwell joined us in July to share a powerful and enriching message from Hebrews 11. He demonstrated how the structure of the verses were positioned to reflect one another to share important truths. As always, Dr. Bagwell and his wife Debbie were such a blessing to our church. We also had a wonderful time of fellowship after the services. We are already looking forward to next year!
Join us in prayer for continued blessings on his powerful ministry.
