We're glad you came!



To our Oxford Hills Community:

The Second Congregational Church, United Church of Christ, 205 Main Street in Norway, has made the decision to not host our annual yard sale on the fourth Saturday in August this year.  This was a tough decision for us, but if you have ever attended our yard sale of the past 19 years, you know it would be very difficult to keep everyone safe and social distancing 6 feet apart.  We have appreciated your support over the years of this major fundraiser for our church.  The funds have allowed us to meet our expenses and support the various missions of the church. 

There is some good news though!  We are in the process of planning on re-opening the thrift shop and hosting some mini “yard sales” in the church.  This will allow us to limit the amount of people at any one time and to keep people safe by requiring masks and offering gloves while people shop.  We hope that you will come and check out these sales and our thrift shop once we open and will understand our requirements that will keep you and other shoppers safe and our congregation as well.  We hope to be able to open soon and encourage you to watch for our signs and notices on our website and FaceBook page announcing these sales.  We look forward to seeing you soon!

Re-opening Church

​​​​​​​We want to hear from you!

Church leadership is meeting and talking about when and how to re-open our church and what processes we need to have in place before we come back and worship together.  We would also like to hear from you about your thoughts.  Here are a few questions that we would like to present and I hope that you will take the time to let us know your thoughts.  You can email us at seconch@megalink.net, send a note to the church or give Pam a call (674-2589) and we will share all your responses with our leadership.

1.  What would you need to have in place at church for you to feel comfortable returning for worship or Sunday School?


2.  We have a bible study on Wednesday afternoons and a book study starting in July (more on that in the updates), is there other things that we could be doing to help us to stay connected?  Tell us what you need!


3.  Would you participate in a church picnic or an ice cream social outside at the church?  Everyone would bring their own food and folding chair so we could social distance in the parking lot.  How many in your family would be comfortable participating?
