Invest in Youth Ministry: Become a Shareholder!
Invest in our youth’s summer mission trips to Cuba, Montreat, and Detroit! Become a shareholder in their venture—and the proud owner of stock.
Sunday, May 28 is the last Sunday that shares will be available, and they are only available in Coffee Hour, so be sure to stop by and get your certificate!
All shareholders will receive a stock certificate and an invitation to attend the August 13 shareholders meeting to hear reports on all that the youth learn and experience on their trips.
Join us for Encore—the fourth annual Center for Life and Learning benefit—on Saturday, June 3!
Robert Chen—Chicago Symphony Orchestra concertmaster—and his children, Noah and Beatrice, will be joined by cellist Gabriel Martins in offering a delightful string quartet performance. The program, which begins in Buchanan Chapel at 5:00 p.m., will feature selections from Ludwig van Beethoven, Jean Baptiste Barrière, and Zoltán Kodály, among others.
The performance will also be followed by a cocktail reception in the Gratz Center Commons. All proceeds support Fourth Church’s Center for Life and Learning, which offers academic, wellness, and fellowship opportunities for those sixty and over.
Get your tickets online today and ensure your summer starts with an Encore!
On the fourth Friday of each month we gather in Buchanan Chapel at 7:30 p.m. for a time of quiet reflection, prayer, meditative singing, and renewal at the end of a busy, noisy week. This service in the style of Taizé is preceded by opportunity to participate in a hosted labyrinth walk in Anderson Hall between 6:00 and 7:30 p.m.
