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 on Saturday, October 6. We’ll be gathering that day at 10:00 a.m. for a Blessing of the Animals service of song and story, giving thanks to God for the creatures that bless our lives. If you’d rather not bring your pets, please bring photographs of them and join us as we celebrate the wonders of God’s creation and our relationships with its creatures, great and small! 

Do You or Those You Know Have Gifts for Leadership?

Church Officers at Fourth Presbyterian Church        
The Nominating Committee is looking for recommendations of Fourth Church members they should consider to serve as Elder, Deacon, Trustee, or a member of the Chicago Lights Board beginning in spring 2019. In particular, the committee is searching for individuals who have demonstrated gifts for leadership and a commitment to the life and ministry of this congregation.
        If you have not done so already, please take a moment to complete the recommendation form online, or pick up a copy from the pew racks or literature racks and return it to the church office.
