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.
A Place at the Table Screening and Discussion
Sunday, March 9
12:15 p.m. in Borwell Dining Room
Many Americans don’t think of the U.S. as the land of the underfed. The documentary A Place at the Table peels back the curtain on the problem of food insecurity, weaving together the stories of low-income Americans who struggle to put healthy food on the table despite the fact that they have jobs.
During the screening, a SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program)-based meal of rice and beans will be served; donations will be accepted at the door.
RSVP by Saturday, March 8 to Nancy Davis (312.274.3815).
