Family Night

Family Night is a once-a-month gathering when families meet at Fourth Church or at an off-site location for an evening of fellowship and often food. Each month’s Family Night has a theme, and the events are generally held on the third Friday of the month during the fall, winter, and spring.

Family Outdoor Movie Nights

Thursdays, July 6, 13, 20, and 27 
6:30-8:00 p.m. 
Day School Playground

Join us this summer for some fun and fellowship out on the Day School Playground with our Thursday Summer Movie Nights!

Every Thursday in July we'll be projecting a different G- or PG-rated movie onto a screen near the Ditka's wall. Come watch some awesome movies, play on the playground, and catch up with one another over the summer. The best part? It's absolutely free (other than parking, of course)!

Our movie schedule will be

            Thursday, July 6: Moana
            Thursday, July 13: Zootopia
            Thursday, July 20: Finding Dory
            Thursday, July 27: Kubo and the Two Strings         

Movies will begin at 6:30 p.m. and will end around 8:00 p.m. (the actual end depends on the run-time of the particular movie). You are welcome and encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets, and you can also bring snacks as well (as long as you make sure to pick up any trash afterwards). Parking at the 900 North Michigan building will be $8 with a validation ticket (as long as you don't enter the garage before 5:00 p.m.).

If it is raining on a particular Thursday, we will just shift to watching our movie inside in the Bumpus Room. It wouldn't be quite as fun as watching outdoors, but the picture and sound quality would be just as good (perhaps even better)!
