“He will tend his flock like a shepherd; he will gather the lambs in his arms; he will carry them in his bosom.” Isaiah 40:11
Fourth Presbyterian Church is a metropolitan congregation in the nation’s capital. Our congregation gathers together to worship God, traveling from sprawling regions across Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia. To ensure that everyone is known and cared for, we have divided the map into regional areas called “parishes.”
Each of our five parishes is shepherded by ruling elders and led by a parish council. The desire of our elders is to serve as undershepherds of the Good Shepherd who knows and cares for his own (Psalm 23; John 10; 1 Peter 5). Parish councils work alongside these elders to coordinate congregational life within the parish.
