Diverse Inclusive COMMUNITY Engaging Passionate

Give Today
    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 Pentecost

Presbyterians are Pentecostal people. We believe in the life-changing power of the Spirit. Throughout the summer, Dr. Neff will be preaching a sermon series on the Acts of the Apostles.  Luke chronicles the book of Acts as “an intimate spiritual revolution” that moves outward from Jerusalem and spreads peace and good news to every people. We will continue the theme of “Life in the Spirit” for the people of God.  Each Sunday service will be punctuated with the joy of worship and the vitality of faithful service. Please join us Sunday mornings at 11:00 am for worship and feel the Spirit of God alive in our midst! The sanctuary doors open at 9:30 am. Our worship service is also online. You may log on to 2ndPresbyterian.org at your convenience.

The Season of Pentecost lasts this year until November 26th, the day before Advent.

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.
