Sermons

In keeping with Presbyterian tradition, the hearing of God’s word in Scripture and preaching is central to each Sunday service of worship at Fourth Church.

For those who were unable to be with us—and for those who want to reflect further on a sermon or save it—you will find below the online text of the most recent sermons, which we also share via Facebook and Twitter.

Printed transcripts (in booklet form) of the sermons are available in the church literature racks, which are located in the Narthex and in the Commons, across from the Reception desk. Audio—in MP3 format—for the 9:30/11:00 sermons (and entire worship service) is also available below and via podcast.
