One of the best ways to form meaningful relationships within Fourth Presbyterian Church is by committing to a community group. These groups meet during the fall and spring to study the Bible, pray for one another, and enjoy living the Christian life together.

We encourage you to find a community group that meets in your neighborhood or at a time that fits your schedule. Contact the group host to learn the meeting address and next meeting date, meeting times and frequency vary.

Discussion guides will be available for download shortly (see below). These guides serve as a framework for community group conversation around the Sunday morning sermon.
