Covenant Conversation: Chicago

September 30 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


Beyond Words:

From Mere Welcome to True Belonging

Fourth Presbyterian Church – Chicago

Saturday, September 30, 10:00am-4:00pm

As Christians who believe that God’s love truly extends to all people, how can we show true hospitality to anyone who walks through our church doors, especially members of the LGBTQIA+ community?

We’ve said we’re welcoming, but how can we show this welcome beyond the walls of our churches and offer God’s love to the broader community?

At Covenant Conversation: Chicago, we’ll worship, learn, and converse together about how we can live into a “new day” in the church and renew our commitments to witnessing to God’s love for the whole world.

This event is sponsored by the Presbytery of Chicago, Fourth Presbyterian Church, and the Covenant Network of Presbyterians, with support from additional congregations in the presbytery. The $20 registration fee includes lunch and parking. For information on getting more involved with planning and leadership, contact Brian Ellison, CNP executive director.
