Family Night

Family Night is a once-a-month gathering when families meet at Fourth Church or at an off-site location for an evening of fellowship and often food. Each month’s Family Night has a theme. Family nights are generally held on the third Friday of the month during the fall, winter, and spring.

Check back monthly to see if reservations are required. Freewill donations are accepted, but there is no cost.

Pumpkin-Decorating Night

   Friday, October 16 
   5:30 to 7:30 p.m. 
   Borwell Dining Room

Join us for our first Family Night of the year—our annual Pumpkin-Decorating Night! Fall is one of the best times of year, and we'll be celebrating it all night with a fall-themed menu, a visit to a "pumpkin patch" (otherwise known as Anderson Hall), and some fall-themed crafts, such as painting pumpkins!

If you've never been to a Family Night in the past, please know that we always have a shared dinner in the midst of our activities. There is no cost to attend Family Night, and there are no RSVPs necessary; we do, however, put out an offering box if you'd like to help us offset the cost. Parking validations for $8 are available at the reception desk, provided that you park in the 900 N. Michigan garage after 5:00 p.m.

Hope to see you all there—and even though it's waaaaay too early, we won't mind if you want to wear a Halloween costume! If you have any questions, please contact Matt Helms at or Briana Belding-Peck at
