Dr. Andrea Zaki to Preach
on Sunday, June 24
This Sunday we are honored to have with us as our guest preacher at 9:30 and 11:00 a.m. the Reverend Dr. Andrea Zaki, a leading voice for Christians in the Middle East.
Dr. Zaki is the President of the Protestant Churches of Egypt and General Director of the Coptic Evangelical Organization for Social Services (CEOSS), an NGO that works to raise the quality of life for more than 2 million Egyptians in economically challenged communities each year.
He also lectures at the Evangelical Theological Seminary in Cairo and serves as the President of the Fellowship of Middle East Evangelical Churches and as a board member of Hands Along the Nile Development Services (HANDS), based in the Washington, D.C., area.
Please join us in welcoming Dr. Zaki to Fourth Church!
An Invitation to Walk in the June 24 Pride Parade
The rainbow flag hanging over the Sanctuary steps is a public witness to our welcome of all of God’s children into the life of the church. For more than twenty years, Fourth Church has been a publicly welcoming congregation of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer persons.
You are invited to join a Fourth Church contingent in expressing our support of the LGBTQ community on Sunday, June 24, when we walk in the Chicago Pride Parade with fellow partners in the Chicago Coalition of Welcoming Churches.
For details about where to meet the Fourth Church parade group on June 24, contact Nanette Sawyer.
Please join us in holding in prayer all the commissioners and others from around the country who are gathered in St. Louis for the 223rd General Assembly (GA) of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). The commissioners at GA, which meets every two years, will work to set priorities for the PCUSA. You can follow online, via news updates and live streaming, the Spirit of GA and the important work being done at the Assembly.
