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.
Interracial Peace Circles
Fourth Church is forming small, interracial groups to participate in Peace Circles that deepen relationships with one another, are in dialogue about racism, and engage in advocacy and actions to dismantle racism. If you would like to be part of an interracial peace circle, please contact Vicky Curtiss. These dialogues are cosponsored by Interfaith Coalition Against Racism and the Fourth Church Multicultural Committee.
