You don’t need to have tickets to attend this Friday’s sold-out Gala of Hope in order to have opportunity to win the fabulous Spring Splendor Drawing or any of the amazing items up for silent auction that evening. Drawing tickets are available online, as is the ability to bid on the silent auction items—and all proceeds support the work of Chicago Lights, the community outreach arm of Fourth Church, and the Replogle Center for Counseling and Well-Being.
The Spring Splendor Drawing package promises a magical evening on April 18: Dinner at Chef Jean Joho’s Everest. A suite at the Park Hyatt. A backstage tour of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and front-row balcony seating for the April 18 performance. Brunch at NoMi. You can buy drawing tickets online now in advance of the March 6 drawing.
Remote bidding on silent auction items will be available online Friday, March 6 at www.bidpal.net/chicagolights during the time the auction is open from 5:30 p.m. until the auction closes at 10:00 p.m. In the meantime you can preview there the wonderful items—from art and jewelry to weekend getaways and more!—that will be up for auction.
As part of our Lenten observances this year, we will be gathering for a time of prayer and reflection each Wednesday evening leading up to Holy Week. We hope you will join us for these Wednesday Midweek Lenten services at 6:30 p.m. in Buchanan Chapel.
During the season of Lent, we are invited to thoughtfully take up the gifts of faith—worship, study, prayer, and service—in preparation for Holy Week and Christ’s journey to the cross.
One way we do that is through our daily Lenten devotions, written by Fourth Church members and staff and available daily via Facebook and Twitter and by email (sign up by clicking on “Get Email Updates” at the upper right or send addresses to firstname.lastname@example.org). They are also posted online and are available in print format in the church literature racks. We hope you will find these devotions useful in your personal prayer and reflection during this season.
