Candlelit Music and Prayer at Taizé This Friday, April 27

Taize at Fourth Presbyterian Church       
This Friday evening—as on the fourth Friday of each month—we will 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 will be preceded by opportunity to participate in a hosted labyrinth walk in Anderson Hall between 6:00 and 7:30 p.m.

Congregational Meeting Called for Sunday, May 6

Senior Pastor Housing Proposal: Fourth Presbyterian Church       
At an April 7 joint meeting, Session and the Board of Trustees endorsed a proposal that Fourth Church acquire a new manse for the use of its current and future senior pastors. In recommending this proposal to the congregation, Session then called a congregational meeting for Sunday, May 6, at which time members of Fourth Church will be asked to vote on the recommendation.
       An email about this was sent to all members for whom we have current email addresses on Wednesday, April 11 and included a link to the proposal summary. (If you are a member and did not receive the email, please click here to add your address to our email news list.) The full proposal was then mailed to all members on Thursday, April 12.
       The congregational meeting will be held on Sunday, May 6 at 12:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary. (Because we believe that congregational decisions are made as a community, our bylaws state that only those members present at a congregational meeting may vote. Thus, as with all other meetings of our congregation, there will not be absentee or electronic ballots.)
       For members who have questions for the committee but who are unable to attend either information session, please direct those questions to Allison Santos.
