Who is Second Presbyterian Church?

Diverse Inclusive COMMUNITY Engaging Passionate

    Mission Statement

We are a diverse and inclusive community bringing people to Christ through the power of service, education, hospitality, and compassion.

    Vision Statement

Second Presbyterian Church seeks to be a diverse, vibrant and passionate Christ-centered community of hospitality and outreach actively serving the South Loop, the city of Chicago, and the world. We accomplish this through inspirational worship in our historic sanctuary, educational ministry to all ages, and the power of compassionate service to our neighbors.

The Season of Eastertide

We celebrate the season of Eastertide for the next six Sundays. Each worship service will remember the appearances of the risen Jesus to the first disciples. Joyous music will fill the sanctuary!

Please join us for in-person worship. Each person in attendance will be asked to wear a mask, receive a temperature check, sign a contact tracing form and remain socially distant before, during and after the service.

If you prefer to worship online, log on to 2ndpresbyterian.org at your convenience. The live service begins at 10:55 a.m. each Sunday morning.

We celebrate the resurrection of Christ in our community of faith and invite you to become a part of our celebration!

Good News: In-Person Worship Resumed

Second Presbyterian Church opened for in-person worship services on Palm Sunday, March 28th. For future services, the sanctuary will open 30 minutes before the start of the service. Each person will receive a thermometer check, answer required health questions and sign a contact tracing form. Each person will also wear a mask and maintain six feet of social distancing while in the church.

We will continue our new practice of offering our services online for those who would like to continue to Worship with us remotely. You may watch our weekly service live at 11:00 am, or you may watch the recording of our service later, any time online, at your convenience.

Statement on Racism:


Second Presbyterian Church is a diverse, multicultural congregation.  We believe that attitudes and actions of prejudice and discrimination are sinful.  We believe that racism and injustice and “the violence of poverty” are social sins that grieve the heart of God and continue to harm our sisters and brothers.

The sins which began on America’s shores in 1619 continue to destroy our communities today.  Now is the time to stop racism!

We as a congregation are committed to protesting injustice and working for systematic change toward racial equality in every area of our society.  As our Lord Jesus Christ advocated for the poor and outcast, we have always been committed to the racial and social equity that the Black Lives Matter movement stands for.   We invite you to join us for worship and service, education and study, action, and advocacy.
