UPDATE: In this unprecedented time, Second has paused all in-person gatherings through mid-May to help slow the spread of COVID-19. This includes our 8:45, 9:45 and 10:45 a.m. worship services. We are continuing to provide worship online on Sundays at 9:45 a.m. The live-streaming feed will be available on our Facebook page at facebook.com/kcsecondpres and on our website at secondpres.org/livestreaming.
On Sundays we gather to focus our corporate attention and thanksgiving upon God.
Early Service at 8:45 a.m.
Our early service is an intimate gathering held at 8:45 a.m. in the Chapel. The service incorporates a sermon, hymns and time for individual prayer requests.
Traditional Service at 9:45 a.m
Our 9:45 a.m. traditional service, held in the Sanctuary, offers thoughtful sermons, inspiring choral music and reflective prayer in a beautiful setting. Come experience the hope, healing and restoration offered through this service as you join with a loving Christian community.

Our new informal gathering, The Common Room, meets at 10:45 a.m. in the Community Room.
Nursery care is provided for both services and The Common Room gathering. Children’s education is available during the 9:45 a.m. service and The Common Room gathering.
The Open Table
The Open Table KC is a dinner church which gathers on the lower level of Second Presbyterian on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month from 6-7:30 p.m. for a meal, music, and conversation. We continue to partner with Second, our parent congregation, and are part of the Presbyterian Church (USA)’s 1001 New Worshiping Communities movement. Our gatherings are curated to integrate contemplation and activism, featuring locally-sourced guest teachers and a dialogical format. We believe God welcomes all of us to the table, no matter where we’re from, what faith we do (or don’t) practice, our race, economic status, or sexual orientation. In response to God’s extravagant welcome, as a church community we work to be actively anti-racist and affirming to people who are LGBTQIA. You can learn more about The Open Table on our website.
The Open Table also provides trainings about racism, organizing and de-escalation which create space for dialogue, acknowledge systemic cultural sins, and offer strategies and skills to challenge institutional barriers. To learn more about our anti-racism work and trainings, visit our website.
