Second Presbyterian Church | Racine, Wisconsin

Presbyterian Church of RacineWe started from meager beginnings on April 25, 1891 at High Street and Pallica (now named LaSalle) as the Bohemian Brethren Presbyterian Church of Racine. Bohemian services were held briefly in the home of Vaclav Pel until May of 1890, when two Theological students came from Chicago, Joseph Bren ( who had also been preaching in Caledonia) and Frank Rundus came and conducted Revival Services Daily from May 11 to May 18, 1890. The Racine worshippers, along with those Caledonia worshippers who were left after the building on Highway 31 burned down, combined to form the new church.

Why do Presbyterians say debts (“forgive us our debts”) and debtors?
Other Christians say “trespasses” or “sins.” This is because the Lord’s Prayer is found in both Matthew’s and Luke’s Gospels, and in the original Greek they use the two different words that mean “to sin.” In Matthew’s version the word used means “to owe a debt,” but a debt of sin, not money.
