I Am New

We'd love for you to visit Second Presbyterian Church. Below are some questions you may have about our church:

What are your meeting times & dates?
Every Sunday we have morning services at 8:30am & 11am, with a Sunday School class for all ages at 10am. We end each Lord’s Day together at 6pm.

Where are you located?
105 River Street Greenville, SC 29601 Map

Second Church is in beautiful downtown Greenville, in the historic West End, 1 block off of South Main Street at the intersection of River and Rhett streets. There is also easy access from Academy street and ample parking.

What is the dress code?
There is no dress code at Second but many of members dress formally.

What is the musical style of the church?
Excellent, Beautiful, Ancient in a Classical Sacred Musical style. As a congregation we sing the hymns of the church from the 2nd century to the modern day, along with the Psalms of David and others written some 3000 years ago. As ensembles we sing the music of the universal church and our music ministry provides choral opportunities for all ages from pre-school through seniors. We strongly encourage those with gifts in music to participate in our choirs.

How big is your church?
We like to say “its not small, it’s also not too big, it’s just right!” We have a growing congregation of over 600 members.

What does the church believe?
We love the Bible. We are unashamedly committed to the Bible, believing the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament to be inerrant and infallible and our only rule for faith and practice.

We are Confessional by affirming the great truths of the Protestant Reformation. Our officers affirm the theology of the Westminster Confession of Faith and Catechisms as the best understanding of Holy Scripture.

We are Presbyterian, being governed by elders according to the New Testament example. We are also a founding congregation of the Presbyterian Church in America, the largest Bible-believing Presbyterian denomination in the English speaking world.

What is your service like?
We love to worship God by gathering each Sunday to actively participate in services that are regulated by the Word and which are full of the best songs of praise from two millennia of Christendom. Our corporate worship is about the edified mind and the reverent heart celebrating God's sovereign grace in life's joy and sorrow. Our church is committed to expository preaching and we love to begin and end each Lord's Day together with the Household of Faith.

How long is your service?
It varies but about 80 minutes

Do you have Sunday School?
Yes, see here

Do you have a nursery?
We have a clean and safe nursery where loving childcare is provided for children up to three-years old. The nursery is located downstairs in the Gymnasium building and is open during both Sunday School and Worship.

What programs do you have for children?
See our Children's Ministry page.

I have a pastoral need. Who can I talk to?
If you have an emergency pastoral need, you can talk to any of our pastors or elders.
