Congratulations to Matt Helms, Our New Associate Pastor!

Matt Helms Elected Associate Pastor at Fourth Presbyterian Church        
At the Sunday, July 19 congregational meeting, Matt Helms was unanimously elected Associate Pastor for Children and Family Ministry. What a gift it is for everyone at Fourth Church—especially the children!—to have Matt serving among us.
        Thank you, Matt—and congratulations!
       Thank you also to the Associate Pastor Nominating Committee for their hard work in reviewing and interviewing candidates for this position. We are grateful for their dedication to both this call process and to our congregational commitment to cultivating and nurturing a vital children and family ministry.

School Supply Drive at Fourth Presbyterian Church
It’s Time to Collect Backpacks
       and School Supplies!

Our annual School Supply Drive organized by Presbyterian Women is underway!
       Needed are backpacks and supplies to fill them for children connected with the Chicago Lights Urban Farm, Summer Day, and Tutoring programs.
       There are a variety of ways to help ensure these children start their school year equipped with the tools necessary for learning: You can donate a backpack filled with supplies, donate supplies to use in Tutoring and to fill additional backpacks, or volunteer to help inventory and distribute the supplies at Summer Day at the end of July and at the Farm in August.

An Invitation to Young Adults: Volleyball Fun at the Beach!

Young adults, come join us for some volleyball at Oak Street Beach. We set up the nets each Monday at 6:30 p.m. and welcome all skill levels: we’re just out there for a relaxed evening of volleyball together! Come enjoy summer at the beach with us and catch up with old friends—and make some new ones!
