Mission and Service

The City of Chicago has occupied rooms for more than 350 asylum seekers at the Selena Hotel, located immediately next door to Fourth Church. Chicago Lights Social Service Center and Fourth Church Meals Ministry are providing services to those who come to the Center and our meals programs. Read more about how you can help.

At Fourth Presbyterian Church, we believe that through mission outreach, we can serve our brothers and sisters in need, sharing in their struggles and hopes and working together for a world of compassion, peace, and justice.

Mission is essential to what it means to be church. As followers of Christ we are called to love our neighbors in ways that proclaim the good news of the gospel. Fourth Church has claimed the call to reach out in many meaningful ways.

Our outreach efforts include bringing hope and relieving suffering through compassionate service, building partnerships with people in other countries, advocating for justice and peace, and sharing God’s unconditional love for all persons. As we give we also receive and are blessed by neighbors in our city and around the world.
