    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

The resurrection of Jesus continues to be celebrated for the 50 days of Eastertide. Songs about Jesus’ rising, his appearances to the disciples and ascension into heaven will be sung.  Dr. Neff will be preaching a new sermon series based on the Acts of the Apostles. Join us for our joyous celebrations in-person or online.

Christ is Risen!  He is Risen Indeed!

We celebrate the resurrection of Christ in our community of faith and, again, invite you to join us in our celebrations!

Sunday Service starts at 11:00 am and the doors to the sanctuary open by 10:30 am. If you prefer to worship online, log on to 2ndPresbyterian.org at your convenience, the live-stream begins shortly after 10:55 am each Sunday morning.

Good News: In-Person Worship Resumed

Second Presbyterian Church is open for in-person worship services. The sanctuary will open 30 minutes before the start of the service. You may sit together again in family and friend units as you feel comfortable.

Masks are optional, however, please, if you have any symptoms, please, stay home and watch online.

We will continue our new practice of offering our services online for those who would like to worship with us remotely. Click here: 2ndPresbyterian.org. You may watch our weekly Sunday service live at 11:00 am, or you may watch the recording of the service (and any past service) later, any time online, at your convenience.
