When we worship God at Second Church, we are surrounded by highly symbolic works of art that point our minds and our hearts toward our Creator and Savior. Beautiful in themselves, these works are an inherent part of community worship, inspiring and enhancing our appreciation of the glory of God. Because of its creative nature, art is truly a reflection of God’s creative spirit. Through the creation and the perception of beauty, we praise and celebrate the creative power of God. Art is, in this, respect, an aspect of worship.

Below is a photo gallery of works of art and architecture in the church buildings, sanctuary, chapel, and throughout the entire church.
