Fourth is a missional church that lives the gospel of reconciliation, cares for all of God’s creation, and serves Christ in all people, especially those who suffer, struggle, and doubt, proclaiming with hope the kingdom of God. We focus on five impact areas: Neighborhood Partnerships, Homelessness and Poverty, Justice and Advocacy, Children and Youth, National and International Partnerships.

The vision statement of Fourth Presbyterian includes this statement: “Fourth . . . cares for all of God’s creation.” The Creation Care Committee is committed to living out that vision. We are pleased to announce that in August 2021, the session voted unanimously to adopt the PCUSA Earth Care congregation pledge. Our committee will soon be sending an application to PCUSA, as the next step toward becoming an Earth Care Congregation. For a list of past and current Creation Care Committee projects, click here. We meet monthly on Wednesday evenings. Please consider participating in our work of caring for God’s creation!
Fourth Presbyterian Church is proud to be a participating church in IHN/United Ministries (Interfaith Hospitality Network). Through this organization, our church hosts families twice a year as they transition from homelessness to self-sufficiency. We provide overnight accommodations, meals, and fellowship. It takes many volunteers to make this important work happen.
Troop 19 is made up of about 35 boys, 2/3 of which are age 15 or younger. All of the adult leaders either have sons that are or were in the Program. We meet on most Tuesday nights from 7:00 to 8:30 PM throughout the School Year and go on a camping trip / outing once a month. We average one Service Project a month. Meet in the Youth Wing of Fourth Presbyterian – our Chartering Organization.
