Advent Jazz: Sunday Afternoons in Buchanan Chapel

Advent Jazz at Fourth Presbyterian Church        
In a much-anticipated move, our weekly Jazz at Four service is now taking place in Buchanan Chapel. Sharing jazz worship in this space allows us to gather in ways that strengthen our feeling of community, deepen forms of prayer, and imaginatively employ visual and musical arts. (The angel above is part of a new set of Advent banners created for our jazz worship in Buchanan Chapel.)
       If you have never been to Jazz at Four, why not make it one of the ways you observe this Advent season: come join us in Buchanan Chapel on Sunday at 4:00 p.m.!
