Faith and Guns

This Sunday is Pentecost Sunday, which by tradition is celebrated as the birthday of the Church. Birthdays, whether personal or institutional, offer us a chance to reflect on our heritage.

The Roots of MUM: First Cong's Influence

Why we should CELEBRATE!!

Madison-area Urban Ministry (MUM) will be celebrating their 40th anniversary on Saturday, May 18, from 6-9pm at the Madison Concourse Hotel. It is important for the members of First Congregational UCC to celebrate the forty years of service to the Madison community because FCUCC was a founding influence.
