We do not know what God has in store for us individually or as a body of believers. We do know that God is good and that we can trust God in all life events and circumstances. We also know that there is a place here for everyone and that opportunities abound for us to witness to our faith and serve God with joy!
We have a classic style of worship each Sunday at 10:00 a.m. The time may change, depending on the needs of the community. We also collaborate with Hanover Presbyterian Church in offering a service on Friday evenings in the tradition of the Taizé Community of France.
Office Hours ~ 9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. (M-F)

Please remember that worship will be held one hour earlier than our usual time on September 28, because of Chautauqua parking issues. Adult Sunday School classes are cancelled as well. See you at 9:00 a.m.! Be sure to stay afterward to support the Deacons' Soup Luncheon fundraising event!
Madison area friends - and visitors returning for the excitement: Chautauqua weekend is upon us! Please support the Deacons' Community Assistance Fund - you can get a fantastic soup, sandwich, and dessert lunch (a drink too!) and not feel guilty about eating fried, greasy food! 202 Broadway, right in the middle of all the action. Sit down in air conditioning, rest and rejuvenate for a second-round of shopping. Thanks to everyone donating delicious desserts and to all the deacons who work hard for this vital fund-raising event!
LAFFS: We are going to Ertel’s in Batesville on October 1st at 11:30 a.m. To make your reservation, please contact Carole Hanson or Dee at the church office 812/265-2952 by Monday, September 29th. See you there!
HOUSE OF HOPE needs your contributions of CEREAL this month - please help if you can!
Many thanks to all of you who participated in the summer choir during the month of July (and the first Sunday of August)! It was so successful we’ve decided to continue in the same way (no previous rehearsal required, arrive at 9:30 on Sunday morning) on the first Sunday of the month until Advent begins. These dates are September 7, October 5 (World Communion Sunday), and November 2 (All Saints Sunday). If you have questions, call Jonathan.
Please note on your calendar that MPC is hosting a Red Cross Blood Drive on Thursday, October 2, from noon until 5:00 p.m. Donate if you can!
ACES is in the midst of a study series on the Dead Sea Scrolls. "In 1947, the discovery of the oldest copies of the Bible shook the religious world. They provided an unprecedented view of Jewish history, culture and religion from before and during the time of Jesus." Come join us for this informative study each Thursday at 6:00.
Our next study is on Wednesday, October 1st, at Susan Ohlendorf's house at 7:00 p.m. We will be looking at Truth #3. All women are welcome, and we hope to see you there
New Sunday School Class: A Kerygma Bible Study class has begun and is held at 8:30 in the upstairs education wing. Kerygma provides an intensive study on a variety of subjects, including the Bible, Liturgical Seasons, Music and Theology, etc. Our first course will be on the book of Matthew. It will last for fourteen weeks and will help us understand the particular perspective and teachings of that Gospel.
A student book, needed for the class, will cost $22. If you would like to participate in the class, please see either Don Wiest or Scott Hookey.
Each week “The Wired Word” takes a headline from the news which challenges the class to think more deeply and, sometimes, differently about faith in our current culture. Please come join us each Sunday morning.

It is vital for us to review the mission of our church from time to time. Your feedback will help. Please read the document we have prepared, asking some important questions. It's titled "Why Madison Presbyterian?" and can be found in the Info Center under that heading, or by using the link here. After you've read it, we ask you to fill out a quick form with your thoughts and comments. Thanks for helping!
