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.

Ice Skating at the Zoo

   Sunday, January 18
   12:30 p.m.
   Lincoln Park Zoo Ice Rink

Join us for our favorite new January tradition: skating at the Lincoln Park Zoo after church! Rather than host our usual Family Night on the third Friday of the month, we will be heading up to Lincoln Park’s skating rink after the 11:00 Sunday School hour on Sunday, January 18.

Although we’ll need to take separate transportation there, the rink is on the smaller side, so we won’t have any problems finding one another. Street parking is both free and ample on Sundays. Matt Helms, Minister for Children and Families, will be buying hot cocoa and skate rentals for anyone who is in attendance. Your family will cover admission, however, which will be $5 per skater.

We hope to see you for some skating! For more information, please contact Matt Helms. The Lincoln Park Zoo’s website also has information about the rink and skating opportunities.
