The relaxed days of summer are here. We continue to cherish times spent together in worship, fellowship, and reflection. We seek God and practice a welcoming faith in our community. We treasure our times together in God’s presence. Please join us as often as you can, and invite others to share in our fellowship.
Whether you are a longtime or new member, or are considering making Second Presbyterian your spiritual home, we hope you will find ways to engage with us. Please call the church office at 212.749.1700 or speak to any church member if you have questions.
Our summer worship tradition is one of relaxation and exploration. This summer we worship in the Sanctuary at 10:15 a.m. on Sundays from July 1 through August 5 with Rev. Lindsay Borden preaching. Sundays August 12, 19, and 26 we worship on Sundays at 10:15 a.m. in the Sanctuary with a varied group of worship leaders and music leaders; we thank them for their service. Please join us as often as you can, and invite others to share in our fellowship.
There is no Sunday School during summer worship. We enjoy a modest fellowship hour in the Carnegie Library following worship and invite all members and friends to join us.
All members of the congregation are encouraged to assist with summer worship as lector, beadle, or offering collector. Our July and August worship coordinator is Bram Lewis; please contact Bram if you’d like to serve.
