CLL: Frequently Asked Questions

< Back to CLL main page

Do I need to be a member of Fourth Presbyterian Church to participate in the CLL?

No, you do not need to be a Fourth Church member to participate! The CLL is open to all people 60 and older. CLL is considered both an adult education and an outreach program of the church for the older adult community.

Do I need to sign up for each of the weekly CLL classes that I’m interested in once I become a member?

Yes, you will need to register for each class you’d like to attend. Within 36 hours of paying for your CLL membership you will receive links for all annual classes offered during the session, and you will need to register for the classes you would like to attend.

How do I know where the classes are located that I am taking?

CLL programming is a mix of virtual/Zoom and in-person classes. The in-person classes take place in the Gratz Center as well as Anderson Hall. Once you are registered, you will be sent the link for virtual classes, or the room information for in-person classes.

There are calendar monitors that list all the day’s events (including CLL activities) inside the Chestnut Street entrance. You may also check with the church receptionist at the entrance.

Please note that all entry is through the entrance at 126 E. Chestnut, and everyone coming to the church must sign in at the reception desk and pick-up a visitor badge. Visitors must wear the day badge while they are in the building and return it when they sign out as they leave.

Where do I go to register for a class or event that I want to sign up for?

Registration for all classes is via the website and online. If you are unable to register online, the CLL staff can help you. Contact the CLL Director, or call 312.981.3386.

How do I keep up to date with what is going on?

There are multiple ways to stay informed about upcoming programming:

• The CLL enewsletter is the best way to learn about programming; sign up here.

• This website ( has full information on our classes and teachers.

• CLL classroom announcements are read at the beginning of each class to highlight what is coming up.

For more information about the Center for Life and Learning, contact Annette Mileski (312.981.3386), Director of the Center for Life and Learning.
