"Always Reforming"--Marking the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation with Fourth Presbyterian Church
The 500th Anniversary
   of the Reformation

As this autumn we mark the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, come engage with us in a seven-part sermon series, “Always Reforming,” that invites us to explore together what it means to be part of the Reformed tradition—and to be committed to be “always reforming.” Along the way we’ll use a variety of statements of faith from our Book of Confessions and, in our sermons, look at various topics within our tradition.
       These topics include Sept 24: “Sovereignty of God” | Oct 1: “Priests without Robes (or Tabs)” | Oct 8: “Depraved and Confused” | Oct 15: “Total Grace” | Oct 22: “Gratitude and Responsibility” | Oct 28: “Always Being Reformed” | Nov 5: “Commitment to the City.”
        Our Academy for Faith and Life will also be offering a series of adult education classes on topics related to the Reformation and our Reformed tradition. Come be a partner in “always reforming”!

Calling All Creatures Great and Small . . .

Blessing of the Animals at Fourth Presbyterian Church       
Get your pets ready for an outing to the Michigan Avenue Courtyard this autumn, on Saturday, October 14.
        We’ll be gathering that day (weather permitting) at 10:00 a.m. for our Blessing of the Animals service. If you’d rather not bring your pets, please bring photographs of them.
        Come celebrate the wonders of God’s creation and our relationships with its creatures, great and small!
