Get Your Tickets Now for the 2017 Gala of Hope!

Gala of Hope at Fourth Presbyterian Church       
Invitations to this year’s Gala of Hope will be making their way to mailboxes next week—but you don’t need to wait to receive one to reserve your tickets!
       Make your reservations online now and you’ll ensure we have a place for you at the 2017 Gala, to be held Friday, February 24 at the Hyatt Regency Chicago.
       All proceeds from this elegant evening of dinner and dancing—paired with fabulous live and silent auctions—support the work of Fourth Church’s nonprofit community outreach organization, Chicago Lights, as well as our Replogle Center for Counseling and Well-Being.
       While there are many ways to support the life-changing work of these mission arms, one of the most fun is through the annual Gala of Hope, so we hope to see you there!

A New Year’s Resolution
     to Meditate

Are you adding “practice meditation” to your list of new year's resolutions? It’s a great way to set aside time for yourself, come to a deep and healthy understanding of who you are, and realize well-documented health benefits.
       And it’s a resolution we can help you achieve! Join us on Tuesdays for the meditation opportunities offered through our Replogle Center for Counseling and Well-Being.

Lunch-Hour Lectures

Why not start the new year with “15 Days of Free Liberal Arts Education”! The January Series of lectures offered by Calvin College offers an intriguing variety of topics and speakers (including Doris Kearns Goodwin and N. T. Wright ), all shown via live video feed at Fourth Church.
        Come join us on an intellectual journey this January, at 11:30 a.m. on weekdays between January 4 and 24 in the Page Smith Room.
