    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.

Season Of Lent

The season of Lent keens our focus as disciples of Jesus.  Every Sunday, a new story intensifies our faithful hope as Jesus moves from the countryside of Galilee to the corridors of power in Jerusalem.  Join us each Sunday for worship at 11:00 a.m. as we remember and celebrate Jesus’ passion for the kingdom of the gracious love of God.
