Second Church is a community more than a place. Yet God has placed us, purposefully, in the heart of Kansas City. Our old sanctuary is lovely and cruciform in shape. It is also imperfect and unfinished. Those of us who gather here are likewise imperfect and strive to incarnate and advance Christ’s ministry of transformation. But we are a people who, with God’s help, make things happen.
