Hoisting the New Organ Console into the Choir Loft

Hoisting the New Organ Console into the Choir Loft: Fourth Presbyterian Church        
It took a special crane and some careful maneuvering, but on Wednesday, November 11, the new organ console—all 1,200 pounds of it!—was hoisted up over the chancel and into the choir loft.
       Today you can see the pictures of that challenging undertaking—and then on Sunday, November 22 you will be able to hear the new instrument for the first time! Please join us as, during the 11:00 a.m. service that day, we dedicate the Edith G. and Edward J. Andrew Pipe Organ to the glory of God.

“We pray for neighbors in Paris, in Beirut, in Baghdad...”

Candles at Fourth Presbyterian Church        
Please join us in praying for our world, using the words of Laurie Ann Kraus, Coordinator of Presbyterian Disaster Assistance:

“God of mercy, whose presence sustains us in every circumstance, in the midst of unfolding violence and the aftermath of terror and loss, we seek the grounding power of your love and compassion.
        “In these days of fearful danger and division, we need to believe somehow that your kindom of peace in which all nations and tribes and languages dwell together in peace is still a possibility.
        “Give us hope and courage that we may not yield our humanity to fear . . . ,
even in these endless days of dwelling in the valley of the shadow of death. . . .”
