Thank you for exploring Fourth Church. I invite you to join us in celebrating the grace of God at any of our Sunday services below. We are eager to help you get to know the life of the church and our ministries that serve the church body, community, and world. I look forward to meeting you.

Grace and peace,

Dr. Todd M. Smedley

Sundays at Fourth


Worship services are at 8:00 & 11:00 a.m. in the Sanctuary. The 11:00 service is available via livestream. Services usually last just over an hour.


Join us for the evening service each week at
6:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary.


At Sunday services, you will hear the reading of Old and New Testament Scriptures, congregational and choral singing, corporate prayers of confession and thanksgiving, and preaching from the Bible.


You will see a range from dressy to casual. Our goal as we gather is to look to our great God and make him the focus. All are welcome!


Fourth offers classes for all ages at 9:30 a.m. Check our individual pages for children, special needs, youth, college, young adults/young marrieds, and adults.
