Becoming a Member of Fourth Church

Are you interested in exploring what Fourth Church membership means and what’s involved in becoming a member?

The Discover Fourth Committee invites you to join them for an Inquirers’ Class. Offered several times a year, this one-session class offers you an opportunity to explore life at Fourth Church and the history and beliefs of the Presbyterian Church (USA). While the class is a prerequisite for membership, all are welcome whether or not they are presently considering membership. 

About the Inquirers’ Class

Meeting with Session

Four times a year those who have attended an Inquirers’ class and would like to join the church are invited to a forty-five minute, Sunday-morning meeting with Session, the ruling body of the congregation.

During the meeting new members are introduced to Session, and Session votes on welcoming them. Afterwards, the new members are welcomed by the congregation during worship.
