At Fourth Presbyterian Church, we believe that through mission outreach, we can serve our brothers and sisters in need, sharing in their struggles and hopes and working together for a world of compassion, peace, and justice.
Mission is essential to what it means to be church. As followers of Christ we are called to love our neighbors in ways that proclaim the good news of the gospel. Fourth Presbyterian Church has claimed the call to reach out in many meaningful ways. Our outreach efforts include bringing hope and relieving suffering through compassionate service, building partnerships with people in other countries, advocating for justice and peace, and sharing God’s unconditional love for all persons. As we give we also receive and are blessed by neighbors in our city and around the world.
Fair Trade Bazaar - Help Needed

December 6, 2015, 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Anderson Hall and Borwell Dining Room
Our annual Fair Trade Bazaar will be December 5 and 6 in Anderson Hall and Borwell Dining Room. With vendors representing artisans from many different developing countries, this event raises about $40,000 each year, making it possible for those artisans to provide food, shelter, health care, and education for their families.
In preparation for the bazaar, we need lots of helping hands to unload the trucks from Ten Thousand Villages and then unpack and arrange items on Friday evening, December 4. We also need help repacking and loading up the afternoon of Sunday,December 6. We'd appreciate your help one or both of those times. If you can lend a hand, please contact Nancy Davis. Thanks much!
