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.

This forum on the proposed Illinois Graduated Income Tax Amendment was sponsored by the Action for Equitable Education committee of Fourth Church!
The forum was conducted in a conversational format, with a moderator asking questions of our panelist, rather a presentational format with slides and graphs. However, for those of you who are interested in more in-depth information, we invite you to explore the resources provided on this page.
For more information about the forum including biographies of the panelists, as well as resources for learning more about the proposed amendment, click here.
