Second Church is a community steeped in progressive tradition, yet creatively committed to new ideas. We are a people who, with God's help, make things happen. We believe that God has placed us purposefully in the heart of Kansas City, at 55th St. and Brookside Blvd. We recognize our imperfection while striving to advance Christ's ministry of transformation.
The people of Second are children and adults, single and married, native and transplants. Our collars are white and blue. We are straight and gay, Republican, Democrat and Independent, rookies and veterans, introverts and extroverts. We are predominantly white but we welcome all people. We find unity in Christ's mission to transform lives and communities. We are all ministers.
Our congregation is especially committed to service and mission because we want to continue the work of Jesus. Through our relationships with our local and global mission partners we advocate for those without a voice, stand with the marginalized, touch the unclean, empower the powerless and proclaim the reign of God in all we do. We strive to be generous givers, knowing that as we do so we are sanctified.
We are eager to learn and grow, in harmony with our heritage that lifts up the importance of education. We cherish our children, nurturing them as we strive to become like them. We engage in healthy dialogue and appreciate different perspectives. We hold a high view of the scriptures and are committed to the hard work of discerning God's will. We live out and talk about our faith in Christ with others and we relish the chance to learn from the faith of others.
We invite you to gather with us as we celebrate God's grace and experience God's presence.
