Description

Christine Till
The Fourth Presbyterian Church of Chicago was formed in February 1871 by the merger of Westminster Presbyterian Church and North Presbyterian Church. The combined congregation dedicated to build a church building on Pine Street (now upper Michigan Avenue), which was then a fairly undeveloped part of the city. The congregation employed architect Ralph Adams Cram to build them a Gothic Revival building. Cram, who also designed the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York, was at work on both churches at the same time during 1912. Only Fourth Presbyterian was completed, however, and was dedicated in 1914.

Cram designed and built the church for Fourth Presbyterian's congregation, but the parish house, cloister, manse, and garth were designed by Howard Van Doren Shaw.The church building is the oldest structure on Chicago's Michigan Avenue, with the exception of the Chicago Water Tower, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The church is all around wonderful whether you are looking for a place to attend a service, join a community, volunteer, admire architecture, enjoy musical concerts or get married. The ministers are progressive and open-minded and write thoughtful sermons. I highly recommend attending a Sunday service to hear the organ (and the Tower Brass every 3rd Sunday of the month) or attend one of the Friday noonday concerts which occur every Friday at noon and typically feature jazz music.
The Fourth Pres. community is a prime example for being what Christianity should be: progressive, tolerant, open-minded, enlightened and a force for communal good.
