January SpeakEasy
at Galway Bay

Next month we'll head back to a winter favorite for our January SpeakEasy: Galway Bay (500 W. Diversey). We'll hole up in this cozy spot to find shelter from the cold weather, share some snacks and a drink, and maybe even get into one of their old-school video games.

As usual, we'll be there from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. that evening. If you have questions, contact Abbi.

We're meeting a week earlier than usual, so you can catch up with everyone following the Christmas break and connect with the new folks who have come into the group lately. Don't miss out on this fun fellowship event!

Time and place
Thursday, January 19
7:00 to 10:00 p.m. at Galway Bay (500 W. Diversey)

Looking Ahead: Summer Mission Trip   

Last year some of the Fourth Church Young Adults traveled internationally to Northern Ireland, where we learned about the peace and reconciliation process and history there. This year we're looking into going on a delegation with BorderLinks in Tucson, Arizona, to learn more about immigration, the challenges and dangers immigrants face, and the amazing work faith communities can do to respond and help.

BorderLinks' history is tied to the Sanctuary Movement that housed undocumented immigrants resisting deportation in the 1980s and which is still going on today in a similar but slightly different context. You can read more about BorderLinks here.

If you're interested in learning more about this trip, here are some dates to keep in mind.

  • Trip informational meeting: January 8
  • Deadline for trip sign-ups and commitment: January 30
  • Possible trip dates: second week of July

Email aheimach-snipes@fourthchurch.org  if you have any questions now or if you're interested in going.

Future Bible Studies  

The last Bible study on the Christmas stories just ended after a meaningful time exploring our faith and questions together. There is also strong interest in continuing a weekly Bible study in the future!

Let us know if you have any interest in helping lead or if you have any interests or ideas about a series in the future and where you'd like to meet. We'll let you know when we have some plans made.

Young Couples’ Groups

Join a Couples 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.

To join a group or for more details, please contact Ken Nicholson.
