The Chapel is Second Presbyterian's 9:30am service. It's 50 minutes long, minimalist, and more casual. We'll praise God with hymnals and a piano in an intimate, more casual setting. You’re encouraged to ask questions here at Second and at the end of the service the preacher will entertain a few questions that can be sent in via text or by raising your hand. And be encouraged to continue the conversation over donuts and coffee.
If you’re looking for a church where your doubts are respected and your questions taken seriously, where you are encouraged to participate and where you can make a difference consider Second Presbyterian Church - brimming with life, community and outreach in response to the love and grace of God.
Come wake up a little early on Sunday and join us at The Chapel. Your soul will thank you for it.
Q: Am I expected to dress a certain way?
A: We recommend...clothes. Some people wear suits and dress, others casual clothes, and a few even wear workout clothes.
Q: What kind of people will be there?
A: The Chapel is an intimate intergenerational gathering, so you will find a mix of young families, college students, young professionals, established professionals and retirees. We're politically diverse with lots of religious backgrounds, but we've found a home following Jesus in the Reformed tradition.
Q: Is there childcare?
A: Yes! There is nursery care and instructional Sunday School. The nursery is available shortly before the service begins and older students are invited to go to Sunday School during announcements in worship (about 9:40 a.m.).
Q: Do you really want me to ask questions?
A: Yes, please! It's boring without questions. Did you know that the word "sermon" comes from a Latin word "sermo," which means "discourse," and even "conversation"? That's what we want here. You can text in your questions anonymously and we'll try to address a handful shortly after the sermon.
Q: Do you actually start on time?
A: Believe it or not, we do. We aim to get done by 10:20 a.m., allow for some time to hang out over donuts and coffee, and then continue our conversations over coffee at Kudu or over brunch.
