through fellowship, as we love and care for one another.
Second Presbyterian Church is
a welcoming community of faith where Jesus Christ transforms lives:
We believe this can best be accomplished through the integration of all youth into the broader life of the church
by their full participation in
service opportunities and trips;
development of community initiatives;
all Christian education offerings;
church-wide stewardship efforts;
and the church's institutional structure
(ministry teams, committees, board of deacons, etc.)
Youth Ministries at Second Presbyterian Church
seeks to provide middle and high school students (grades 6-12)
with a welcoming, safe and encouraging community,
which gives space for faith discovery, spiritual growth, dedication to Jesus Christ,
and full engagement in the corporate life of Second Presbyterian Church.
Youth Ministries at Second is a space where middle and high school students gather not to witness an event but to be a part of something bigger than themselves where everyone belongs and all are welcomed.
