Children's Ministry

All over the Bible God tells us that Children are a blessing from him. In fact, Jesus tells us that children are a model of faith for adults! We also know that coming to church with little ones can sometimes be a great challenge and that the church together is called to raise children to know and love God. Though children are always welcome in our worship services, we offer a couple ways to care for your children at Second City Church.

Nursery – Our nursery volunteers will care for your children ages 0-2 while you attend the worship service.
Children in Worship – During the sermon time of our worship service, children ages 3-8 are invited to a time of worship and teaching that mirrors our worship and teaching and trains them in the practices of Christian worship.
Youth Bible Study – During the school year the youth of our church gather together for an hour before worship to study the Bible and spend time in fellowship with one another.
For the safety of your children, we require background checks and safety instructions for everyone who volunteers with our children’s ministries.

In addition the ways that we weekly care for our children, we have an annual VBS, occasional gathering for youth and children and we often are led by youth and children in our worship services

Logos Academy School

After some years of dreaming by many here at Second City Church, this school was started three 2.5 years ago to reach the children of Harrisburg with high-quality, Christ-centered education. There are now 2 preschool classes and a kindergarten class and the school is now officially affiliated with Logos in York. The school is located right in our building and our church supports the school in many ways.


Here are some of the works that Second City supports:

Bethesda Mission – Bethesda Mission has long been alight in our city, bringing hope for many people that find themselves down-and-out in the city of Harrisburg. As part of our local missions endeavors, there is a team that goes and leads worship at the mission (located just 8 blocks from the church) every first Sunday evening of the month.

Paxton Ministries – Paxton Ministries is a Christ-centered ministry that provides housing and support services for adults in need, many of whom are challenged with financial needs, mental illnesses, and intellectual disabilities. Paxton both comes to us as a church sometimes and blesses us with their presence, but we also go to them and help lead worship at the Paxton home on Paxton street.

InterVarsity Penn State Harrisburg

Hope for the Inner City – Seeking to partner with like-minded works around the country and to learn form them, Second City has partnered with Hope for the Inner City in Chattanooga, TN. Beyond giving to this work, we have sent a team this past year to work alongside them and to earn from them.

International. The international missionaries that Second City supports are all located in areas that are too sensitive to have on our website. They are all doing medical missions and church planting. Please keep them in your prayers.
