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 Advent

The season of Advent begins with the prophetic texts predicting the coming of the Messiah and the Messianic kingdom. At the same time that we celebrate the first coming of Christ, we proclaim our expectation and hope of the second coming.

This year, the first Sunday of Advent is November 28, 2021.

We invite you to join us for in-person worship every Sunday at 11:00 am. The sanctuary doors open at 10:30 am. Our worship service is also online. You may log on to 2ndPresbyterian.org at your convenience.

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.

All guests are still required to wear a mask while in the church and, 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.
