Info to Know

When you worship with us at Second Presbyterian Church, you will immediately be drawn by the outstanding architecture and artistry of this City, State, and National Historic Landmark location. Our sanctuary features a number of Tiffany Stained Glass Windows and 175 angels depicted in statues, carvings, glass, and murals. We are a PC(USA) church rooted in the Presbyterian tradition but our congregation is anything but traditional. We are proud to be a beautiful representation of God's Kingdom in the make-up of our congregants every Sunday. We have folks from every corner of the earth worshiping together each Sunday morning and we have formed a community of support, love, and care for anyone who walks in our doors. Whether you are new to Christianity or have been a life-long Christian, all are welcome and will feel comfortable worshiping with us. We look forward to meeting you and sharing in God's glory with you!


Friends and Family Sunday: On Sunday, March 24th, we welcome our friends and family to worship. God put us on this earth to live in families. Those families are defined in so many beautiful ways. God’s church is often called the family of God. On this special Friends and Family Sunday, we encourage you to invite your family and friends to join us in worship.

Lenten Study Series: Each Wednesday in Lent, we will meet in the Church Library at 6:15pm and delve deeper into what it means to Love Our Neighbor and to Love Ourselves. Pastor Neff and Pastoral Assistant Leslie will be co-teaching this class and all are welcome.

Open Mic Night: We will be hosting our FIRST Open Mic Night on Friday, April 5th from 7pm-9pm! We will have local beer and popcorn available. Cost is $5/person. If you would like to be a performed, please contact our Pastoral Assistant Leslie Deslauriers at or call the church office (312)225-4951.

We will have plants, food, books, jewelry, and more for sale! If you would like to pre-order any plants, please contact Jane Tiffen at

Book Group: The May Book Group book will be The Defender by Ethan Michaeli. This discussion will take place on Sunday, May 19th at 9:30am. Please note we will NOT be meeting in April.

Sunday Parking

The parking lot adjacent to the north side of the church is available for parking for Sunday worship. We encourage those whose mobility permits to park on the city streets so as to leave parking lot space for those with more limited mobility. Street parking is FREE every Sunday. Please contact Office Administrator, Ashley McLean, for more information.
