Second Chance Church in Peoria, Illinois believes that we are never to far away, never too broken, never too hurt to find our way back to hope, healing, and rest in Christ.  At Second Chance Church we are discovering and sharing a relationship with a God who never gives up on us.

Second Chance Church is a place where all the people you see are imperfect, still-trying-to-figure-it- out people.  But that doesn’t mean that we’re not trying.  In fact, we are doing our best to allow God to transform us into all he desires us to be; and we’re committed to helping people find their way back to God.  

  • God is bigger and better and closer than we can imagine.
  • Grace is the only way to have a relationship with God.
  • Faith allows us to grow in our relationship with God.
  • Jesus is God showing himself to us.
  • Through His Holy Spirit, God lives in and through us now.
  • God has allowed evil to provide us with a choice.
  • God can bring good even out of horrible events in our lives.
  • Jesus promises victory over the evil we encounter as we follow him.
  • With the help of God’s Spirit, Scripture allows us to know God’s heart and understand this life.
  • The church is to serve people like Jesus served people.
Service begins at 10 am
Doors open at 9:30am.  Join us for coffee, tea & donuts (they’re free)
We are a casual church, so please, come as you are.


We know your children are of utmost importance to you and their care is important to us as well! 

In our Nursery (infant – 2 yr. old), children will be cared for, allowed to play and learn about God right on their own level. 

Preschoolers (ages 3-7) and Grade Schoolers (ages 8-12) will have a blast as they learn more about how Jesus loves them just as they are with activities and a learning space geared for their age.

We also provide a “Quiet Room” so little ones and mom can retreat to a calm environment for feeding, changing, or other needs.

That sounds strange from a church, but we’d love to know you’re coming.  We’ll have a gift waiting for you and our children’s ministry will be eagerly waiting to greet and love on your children.  We are excited to meet you!
