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)
A Tribute to Our Heritage has been POSTPONED, due to bad weather! The new date is MARCH 15. We will commemorate the George Washington Birthday Feaste, first held in this church on February 22, 1887, by holding “A Tribute to Our Heritage.” It will include brief histories of our 200 years and special music, both vocal and instrumental, that was sung or played “of ye olden tyme.” A reception in the Fellowship Hall will follow the service.

Sunday bulletin for February 22
“The God We Can Know: Exploring the ‘I Am’ Statements of Jesus” – Each Sunday morning from 8:30 – 9:30, the class will look at one of the “I Am” statements of Jesus. A DVD featuring Rob Fuquay of St. Luke’s Methodist Church in Indianapolis will offer a perspective from the Holy Land on each of Jesus’ sayings.
Community Lenten Lunch Series – Each Wednesday at noon, beginning February 25 and continuing through Lent, the Madison Ministerial Association is sponsoring a worship service and lunch. Each week the service will be held at a different church in the downtown area. Check your newsletter calendar for locations.
“Café Conversations” on the General Assembly’s Amendment 14.F on Marriage – Each Wednesday evening in March, Jean Beaver and Scott Hookey will lead small group discussions on a series of topics relating to one of the General Assembly’s Constitutional Amendments regarding marriage. These sessions will begin at 7:00 p.m. and last approximately 90 minutes. Dessert will follow. Since each discussion will build on the previous week’s topic, please make every effort to attend all the sessions.
“Walking in the Footsteps of Jesus” - Each Thursday evening, the ACES’ fellowship and study group will watch Adam Hamilton tour the Holy Land, showing places important in Jesus’ ministry. If you found “24 Hours That Changed the World” meaningful, you will want to be a part of this study. Join the group at 6:00 p.m. for a pitch-in supper followed by the DVD.
HOUSE OF HOPE Needs Your Help! We’re calling February “Soup Month” at the House of Hope. Please bring cans of soup to the church, and they will be delivered to the food pantry. Thanks so much for your donations!
We have all been watching the scaffolding as it makes its way around the sanctuary. Ever wonder about what it takes to clean and repair our windows? Interested in some insights into our windows and their peculiarities? On Sunday, March 8th, Rhonda Deeg will be with us at 11:00 a.m. to offer information, answer questions and explain our window restoration. Enjoy some fellowship and then gather in the sanctuary for an informative workshop.
You may still join the new Kerygma Bible Study class, held at 8:30 each Sunday morning in the upstairs education wing. Our first course is on the book of Matthew. Talk to Don Wiest or Scott Hookey for more information or for information on our other adult group, The Wired Word. Each week a headline from the news challenges the class to think more deeply and, sometimes, differently about faith in our current culture. Please come join us each Sunday morning at 8:30.
