Dave and Valerie Short

A monthly gathering of men who meet on the 3rd Sunday of each month to share what is happening in their lives and receive support on how to best navigate real life situations. 

Tom Bailey

There is a place for you here. You’ll find Connect Groups are an easy place to belong and meet lifelong friends!

Luke and Andi Franklin

We’re an eclectic group of night-owl Christians trying to work out and live out our faith in a way that makes sense for ourselves and our families. We don’t shy away from any question and usually ask quite a few of them. We are a safe place to be yourself as you grow and evolve as a Christian. We currently rotate between Monee, Manteno, and Bourbonnais to help ease the burden of childcare upon our group members with little kids.

Greg and Kelly Dettlaff

Our home group has a family friendly atmosphere. We like to do dinner together before a group and there are a variety of age groups that attend. We invite anyone with a desire to dig deeper into the community to join us! We meet on Monday nights at 6:30


On Saturday evenings Second Place will be open for prayer from 5-7pm. Feel free to come when you can and leave when you must. People will be there to pray for you and pray over the needs of our church and community.

Dave Short

Men's Breakfast

The men of Second Place gather the third Saturday of each month at Brian’s restaurant (25665 S Governors Hwy, Monee)

Young Adults - April Sakell

Out of high school and ready to connect with others your age? We would love for you to join us as we figure out how to navigate life and faith in the "real world" together.
