The easiest routes to Fourth Church on Marathon Sunday can be found here.
All are invited to a festive reception this Sunday, October 11 when we gather to thank Joyce Shin for her ministry among us over the past nine years.
Joyce will preach at all three morning services, and afterwards, at 12:15 p.m., we will hold a congregational meeting to formally dissolve our pastoral relationship with her so that she might embrace her new call to serve as Pastor and Head of Staff at Swarthmore Presbyterian Church in Swarthmore, Pennsylvania. The reception in honor of Joyce, Michael, and Sophia will follow that meeting. Please plan to be with us!
You can read Joyce’s letter about the Swarthmore Presbyterian call here.
At Quimby Pipe Organs, the almost-complete console of our new pipe organ
As you can see from the photos on Facebook, the installation of our rebuilt pipe organ has begun! The work—which includes installing nearly 8,000 pipes—is anticipated to take several months, and we look forward to celebrating the completed instrument this Advent. In the meantime, be sure to watch for regular photo updates!
