Special Events for Children and Families

Children and Family Ministry at Fourth Presbyterian Church is active, exciting, and growing every year. Please join us for these and other events to share fellowship, expand your circle of friends at church, and grow in Christ as a family.

Thursday Summer Movie Nights

   Every other Thursday, through August 21
   6:30 to 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 other Thursday throughout the summer, we wil be projecting a different G-rated movie onto a screen near the Ditka's wall. You and your family are invited to come watch some classic movies, play on the playground, and catch up with one another over the summer months.

All movies will begin at 6:30 p.m. and will end around 8:00 p.m. You are welcome and encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets, and you can bring snacks as well (although snacks will need to be eaten inside). Parking for those who enter the 900 North Michigan garage after 5:00 p.m. will be $8 after using a validation ticket.

If it is raining on a particular Thursday, we will just shift to watching our movie inside the Bumpus Room on the second floor of the Gratz Center.
