Reconciling in ChristGod is Still Speaking
Two Minute Bible

Two Minute BibleMCC member Don Falkos has been working on a new Bible storytelling project to offer Bible stories in two minute episodes. That’s why it’s called “Two Minute Bible” and is found at http://twominutebible.com. Two new stories are posted each week. As of the end of October, there are 35 episodes, from creation through the flood, to meeting Abraham and up to Joseph’s dreams (Genesis chapter 37)

  No Matter Who You Are or
Where You Are On Life’s Journey,
You Are Welcome in This Place

The Madison Christian Community is a unique community rooted in a groundbreaking partnership between two very different congregations. We do almost everything together including education for all ages, service in the wider community, care of our land and our environmental stewardship efforts. We even worship together regularly throughout the year. Guests will encounter a vibrant community of faith that values relationships and community engagement and that actively lives out its faith every day of the week. Explore our website to learn more about our two individual congregations and about our partnership efforts and visit us on Sunday morning.

Quilting for Lutheran World Relief
LWR QuiltsThe MCC Quilters created 176 quilts in the past 12 months from fabrics donated by the congregation. These donations make it possible to participate in this wonderful Lutheran World Relief mission for the 21st year! For the first time last year the quilters were able to track where THEIR quilts went. They received thank yous from Angola (in Africa), India, and Georgia (part of the former USSR). This year’s quilts were driven to the rail yard on Johnson Street on October 1, and began their journey to desperate families who have lost their household belongings due to natural or man-made disasters. The quilts will be given away—never sold—to people without regard to race, politics, or religion. As long as people will keep donating cast-off sheets, tablecloths, curtains and fabric stash, the quilters will keep making quilts. And those quilts will bring warmth, color, and a reminder of love from half way round the globe. Consider joining the MCC quilters the 1st Tuesday of every month on the lower level at 9am. No prior experience necessary. More pictures on the News page. Click here.

Congratulations to Harvest of Hope!
Harvest of HopeThey just hit the $1,000,000 mark!
In the 30+ years of this ministry, Harvest of Hope has awarded over one million dollars in grant money to Wisconsin farm families who faced financial crises. Way to go! The situations have been extremely varied and include: electric power cutoffs, medical or veterinary bills, house or barn fires, feed shortages, crop failures, herd health problems, machinery breakdowns, low commodity prices, rising input costs, or simply putting food on the table or fuel in the fuel tank. Harvest of Hope grew out of Community of Hope UCC, and continues to receive financial, volunteer, and in kind support from both congregations of the Madison Christian Community, as well as from many other contributors.
