March 22 Worship Service Cancelled (but sermon will be online:-)

(Wednesday, 3/18/20) SRC Consistory passed a motion to cancel the Soup and Bread Supper on Thursday, March 19th; to cancel Sunday morning Worship on March 22nd and to continue to evaluate the situation and vote to cancel other events on an as needed basis. Our Easter Choir & Bell Choir practices are suspended for the present. Updated info on worship services will be posted as it becomes available.

We are planning to post an audio version of the March 22 sermon on the SRC website and Facebook page by Saturday evening. Additionally, we are making plans for our first Facebook “livestream” sermon around 9:15AM on Saturday.

For the present our church office will be open normal hours, 8:30AM-12:30PM, 1:30-3:30PM Monday through Thursday.  For the latest information, please call the church office at 315-926-4235.

Those who would normally worship the Lord through giving their offerings during worship services are invited to either mail them in (Second Reformed Church
P O Box 32, Marion, NY 14505) or contribute through our church’s online giving platform at:

We encourage folks to make an effort to check on each other’s well-being via electronic media or phone.

One Scripture our congregation has often turned to in difficult times is Psalm 46.  May our Lord comfort you through this and remind you that He is Lord, sovereign, and sovereignly working through the present distresses and challenges.

Psalm 46
1  God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
2  Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way,
though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea,
3  though its waters roar and foam,
though the mountains tremble at its swelling. Selah
4  There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
the holy habitation of the Most High.
5  God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved;
God will help her when morning dawns.
6  The nations rage, the kingdoms totter;
he utters his voice, the earth melts.
7  The LORD of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah
8  Come, behold the works of the LORD,
how he has brought desolations on the earth.
9  He makes wars cease to the end of the earth;
he breaks the bow and shatters the spear;
the burns the chariots with fire.
10  “Be still, and know that I am God.
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!”
11  The LORD of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah
