Over January and February 2022, Third Presbyterian Church will host two, four week, Saturday Programs we are calling Saturday Clubs.  There will be four clubs offered each Session for two time slots – either 10-12 or 1-3.  Both time slots will be a repeat of the other and Session Two will be exactly the same as Session One.  Right now we are only registering for Session One which begins on January 8 and meets on the 15th, the 22, and the 29th.  You must be in high school or college to attend this program. 

Pastor John is creating a Bible Study titled, Amazing Wisdom, Amazing Women.  Each week the YouTube study looks at some of the most memorable women in the Old Testament.  The study looks at these women in pairs each week in order to better compare them.  Each study is only 20-25 minutes in length.  This study is based on the book by award winning journalist and host, Shannon Bream, and titled, “The Women of the Bible Speak”.  Click on this button and you will go to a page where you can select which week you would like to look at.  Blessings to all.




We are back to In-Person Worship each Sunday at 10:00 AM.  We are currently following CDC Guidelines and require all in the Sanctuary to wear masks.


If you have any questions, please look for email updates and/or call the church office at 217-528-0457.

Welcome to Third Presbyterian Church!

Real life happens to all of us every day.  No one should face life alone.  Third Presbyterian Church is made up of real people who experience life by joining together to grow in faith and love through a real Jesus. 

In Worship, in Fellowship and in a variety of other activities at 3rd Presbyterian, people of faith are joined together to face the challenges of life and be reminded there is always the Good News of Jesus.  Our church is invitational, open and affirming for all ages and positions in life.  We are many and yet in God’s grace and by the Spirit we become one.

About our Pastor

Rev. Dr. John R. Shear

Worship is led each week by Pastor John. His preaching style is easy to follow. While using the Bible as the source of all of his sermons, Pastor John explains the truths of the Word of God in stories and humorous examples. His sermons are lively and get to the point quickly. 

Visit our Facebook Page at Third Presbyterian Springfield for a recording of our worship services which include Pastor John’s sermons.

Third Presbyterian Church has been a pillar of the Springfield community for over 100 years. The church was founded with community outreach and support in mind. What the founders of our church wanted we are still doing. For over one hundred years, we have preached the gospel of the grace of God from this pulpit, and our members have been able to give a reason for their faith and their hope.


Join Us!

Our church is blessed with a variety of God given, talented individuals, who help in worship with Praise Music, Choir, Adult Hand-bells and Special Music.   Worship normally lasts about an hour and follows a blended service format.  Communion is celebrated on the third Sunday of each month and is open to all.

Worship with Us!

You will find our worship is casual and contains an energy and spirit to allow the voice of God to speak to individuals in a variety of ways.
