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
No Matter Who You
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
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.

Congratulations to Harvest of Hope!
They just hit the $1,000,000 mark!
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.
