Because of your Generosity...

As we approach our Annual Meeting, it is important to reflect on the work of the many boards of the church. We will vote and install leadership of the church this coming Sunday. Some of our board members have completed the maximum number of terms on their given board, others have chosen to re-focus their energies and still others have chosen to join a different board. Whatever position our members are in at this point, I want to recognize the time that has been given by each of our members, whether staying for another term or finishing a term.

A Message from Ann Beaty

“Because Christian community is founded on Jesus Christ,

it is a spiritual and not a (human) reality. 

In this, it differs from all other communities.”

Life Together; Dietrich Bonhoeffer

 

I’ve often wondered what it must have been like for Jesus’ followers in those early days following his death. While the gospel accounts vary slightly in the details, it is clear that they were struggling – hurt, confused, stunned, and lost. With Jesus as their teacher and friend gone, they had to re-define community and discover what the present and future would mean as his followers.

Holy Week

We have celebrated Palm Sunday, hearing how the people ran to meet Jesus on his entry into Jerusalem. We waved our palms and sang “Hosanna.” We are thrilled to welcome Jesus into our city, our Sanctuary and our lives. But are we prepared to stand by him during this Holy Week?

Come and experience ALL of Holy Week.

The GRACE was AMAZING!!

13 teams of Youth from 10 Madison area churches filled the First Cong dining room for the 9th annual running of the Amazing gRace this past Sunday. 85 youth, and adult chaperones completed challenges and followed clues around the church and city on a quest to complete the race first. Prize money will be sent to chosen charities of the top two placing teams. First Cong had two teams competing, one for 7th and 8th graders, and one for High Schoolers. The High School team came in first place and will hold the traveling trophy for the year. The charity they played for was the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). The second place team was from Madison Christian Community, who played for the Homeless Teen Backpack Project.
