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 sermons available in a variety of formats.

Online text of the most recent sermons, which we also share via Facebook and Twitter as well, can be found below. There is also an archive of the text of earlier sermons.

Sermons are emailed to those who have signed up to receive Fourth Church sermon emails.

Printed transcripts (in booklet form) of the sermons are available on-site only, 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 Sunday morning sermon (and entire worship service) is also available below and via podcast.
