About Us

We are a member of the Presbyterian Church (USA), the largest Presbyterian denomination in the country.  Though we are diverse in many ways, we are all united around our central worship of God, as God is known through Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Second Church was founded in 1875 with just 13 founding members.  Since that time we have grown, changed, and developed, but through it all we have remained committed to our unifying core beliefs.

Our Vision Statement

We are a warm and welcoming community who are seeking, sharing, and serving. We seek to grow in love for God, share that love with others, and serve the world. We apply this vision to every facet of our life together.

Seeking

All of us are seeking something. This is part of being human. We believe that God gave people this longing to seek so that we would seek God, and in the seeking, find him. This seeking is a life-long process. As we worship God, both in community on Sunday morning and in our daily lives the rest of the week, we seek to hear from God, to know God, and to live out the things God reveals through the search.

Sharing

The Bible tells us that God is love and those who love God will also love their brothers and sisters. At Second Church, we take this seriously. God calls us to share the love of Jesus. For us that means we share in life together at Second Church, as well as sharing God’s love with the community of Staunton.

Serving

Second Church has been serving the community of Staunton since 1875. Many things have changed since that time, but Second Church has been at the heart of this community through it all. Inspired by the example of Jesus, we believe God calls us to serve in tangible ways. Through serving, God grows our faith, makes an impact for the kingdom of God, and changes the world around us.
