Worship with Second Presbyterian Church
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 nine 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, however 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!
There is a distinguished history of the highest caliber of music at Second Presbyterian Church. The Second Church Quartet of professional singers leads worship with inspirational music, accompanied by our organist on the four manual Austin pipe organ. We also have a Children's Choir, which sings on special occasions.
For The Children
Pre-Covid-19 mitigation, during the service, children ages 5 to 12 were invited to participate in a Children's Sermon, and, afterwards, they were dismissed to Sunday School where trained teachers conduct age-appropriate lessons for developing a spiritual faith.
The Session is committed to continuing in this role when in-person services are restarted. Details to follow.
Holy Communion and Baptism
The sacrament of Holy Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of each month, as well as on Holy Days. All people are welcome to receive Holy Communion, especially children.
The sacrament of Baptism is offered during Sunday services to all in a celebration of the spiritual love, commitment and belonging within our inclusive community of faith. Please contact the Church offices, (312) 225-4951, for more information.
The parking lot adjacent to the north side of the church is available for parking during Sunday worship. However, street parking is also FREE every Sunday around the church and we encourage those whose mobility permits them to park on the city streets to do so, leaving the parking lot spaces for those with more limited mobility. Please contact the Church offices, (312) 225-4951, for more information.
