Chicago Lights Tutoring at Fourth Presbyterian Church
Tutoring Is Turning 50!

Fifty years ago, members of Fourth Church began tutoring children from Cabrini-Green—an ongoing effort that has grown into the Chicago Lights Tutoring program. That program kicks off a new year on October 6 when student-tutor pairs will gather at Fourth Church one night each week, Monday through Thursday.

Calling All Creatures Great and Small . . .

Blessing the Animals at Fourth Presbyterian Church
Get your pets ready for an outing to the Michigan Avenue Courtyard this autumn, on Saturday, October 11.
        We’ll be gathering that day (weather permitting) at 1:00 p.m. for our annual Interfaith Blessing of the Animals service. If you’d rather not bring your pets, please bring photographs of them.
        Come celebrate the wonders of God’s creation and our relationships with its creatures, great and small!

Do You Know Church Members with Gifts for Leadership?

Fourth Presbyterian Church Officers       
The Nominating Committee is looking for recommendations of Fourth Church members they should consider to serve as Elder, Deacon, Trustee, or a member of the Chicago Lights Board beginning in spring 2015. In particular, the committee is searching for individuals who have demonstrated gifts for leadership and a commitment to the life and ministry of this congregation.
       If you have not done so already, please take a moment to complete the recommendation form online, or pick up a copy from the pew racks or literature racks and return it to the church office. The last day to submit recommendations is Monday, October 6.
       This fall, the committee will review those submissions and then prepare a slate of candidates to recommend to the congregation at the February 8 Annual Meeting.
