Recognizing that differences are a source of vitality, strength, and growth for a congregation, the mission of the Multicultural Committee is to increase the multicultural inclusivity of Fourth Presbyterian Church.
This committee seeks to further a culture of inclusion through intentional, ongoing planning and leadership. By building relationships at both interpersonal and intergroup levels and by generating initiatives that recognize and celebrate the gifts of a diverse membership, we hope that people of many racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds feel a sense of welcome and belonging.
Interracial Peace Circles
Fourth Church is forming small peace circles composed of people from different racial backgrounds with the goals of deepening relationships with one another, being in dialogue about racism, and engaging in advocacy and actions to dismantle racism. If you would like to be part of one of these peace circles, please contact Vicky Curtiss.
