As always, we’re open to suggestions for new places to try for future SpeakEasies, so if you have any ideas (or you just want to return to a past site) please let Hardy know so that we can get some space reserved.

Other Opportunities

Easter Sunday: Sunrise Service and Brunch
   Sunday, April 20
   6:30 a.m. on Oak Street Beach

   Brunch to follow, RSVP for location and details

Easter Sunday at Fourth Church is filled with glorious worship, and one of these unique opportunities to celebrate Jesus’ resurrection takes place out in the fresh air on Oak Street Beach. Come join Young Adults in attending this year’s sunrise service at the beach, where Hardy Kim will be preaching and celebrating Communion. 

After the worship service, members of the group will be meeting at a location near the church for brunch. If you’re planning on attending the brunch, RSVP with Hardy Kim so that we can save you a spot when we make reservations.

Spring Retreat

   Friday, May 2 to Sunday, May 4
   Grand Beach Inn, New Buffalo, Michigan

Don’t miss the upcoming Young Adults’ retreat in May! We’re headed back to the Grand Beach Inn for a weekend full of laughter, shared meals, fresh air, and some invigorating discussion. We’ll be taking a look at the ways technology impacts our everyday relationships, and we’ll also consider how our faith might call us to make some intentional changes to how we use technology.

Registration forms are available here. The cost of the weekend, including transportation, lodging, and all meals and drinks, is $150. If you register before Easter Sunday, you’ll even get a key resource for our discussions free (see the registration form for more details). Please plan to meet at Fourth Church by 6:00 p.m. on Friday, May 2 to share rides to the retreat site. We’ll be back by 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, May 4.

Young Couples’ Groups

Join a Young Couples’ small group! You do not need to be a member of the congregation to participate in a small group, and these groups are intended for both married and nonmarried couples alike. 

We are also looking for couples who would be willing to lead or colead a small group. This would involve being the contact couple for the group, organizing meetings, and planning activities.

Contact Ken Nicholson to be added to a list of couples or if you have any questions about this ministry.
