Sanctuary of the Beatitudes at Second Baptist Church

The words of interpretation found on this website were originally published in celebration of Second Baptist Church's Sesquicentennial in January, 1983. This section of the website, as well as the original printed brochure, are dedicated with love and gratitude to the Reverend Leon R. Robison, Jr., Minister Emeritus. The text is his interpretation of the Beatitude windows. Mr. Robison was minister of Second for twenty years, including the time when the sanctuary was built, and played a major role in the design and development of these unique windows.

Music at Second Baptist Church

Our choir enjoys singing together! There is a fellowship and camaraderie among our volunteer singers. We sing from a wide variety of choral music traditions. We are always looking for new members - come join us!

Photo Album

Families have photo albums and we thought it made sense to begin one for our church family as well. Click here to load our album, which will soon contain photos from various events around Second, as well as a tour of our Beatitudes windows.

Our Worship Service

Second Baptist Church cares deeply about the excellence and responsiveness of its worship life. We worship weekly on Sunday mornings at 10:30 a.m. in a contemporary, inspired place of worship. We believe that worship arises from the people, thus participation by the members of the congregation is essential to our worship. Our members—including youth and children—make announcements, read scripture, and lead prayers. We provide a special time in worship for greeting our visitors and each other. We focus on individual prayer requests through an intentional congregational prayer each Sunday.
