We encourage children and young adults to participate 
in our church. 

Nursery care for infants and toddlers is provided for the 10:30 am worship service.

Sunday School,  Catechesis offered at  9:30 am  for pre-school and youth and adult formation, ends prior to the start of the 10:30am service so that all may participate in the 10:30am worship service. Regular Sunday School is offered at 10:30am.

Rite 13 and Journey to Adulthood (J2A) are offered at 9:30 am for grades 6 - 12.  This allows them to participate in the adult worship.

If children are able, we encourage their participation in the 10:30 am worship as acolytes and lectors.  Beginning in the fifth grade, young people are eligible to be trained as acolytes to assist the clergy during worship.  We have a youth position on the vestry for more direct input regarding our youth.

Vacation Bible School is usually the first week in August with our young adults assisting the leaders.

Holy Communion is open to all baptized Christians

We welcome children to the Holy Table so that they will always remember sharing in this sacrament.

We believe that education is a life-long proposition

Three adult education groups are offered weekly.  The Thursday evening group studies the Bible, and the more eclectic Wednesday daytime group studies Bible related books as well as the Bible. On Sunday at 9:30am a variety of topics are discussed.

Twice a year, a Quiet Morning is held for group discussion and individual meditation.

We invite and encourage everyone to participate in the church programs that will nurture them in their faith journey.    

A varied music program includes the choir, a string group with vocals, organ, piano, and special voice and instrument offerings from our congregation and guest musicians.

Sacristy and flower volunteer teams rotate through the year preparing the altar, setting up for Holy Communion, arranging flowers, preparing the baptismal font, and monthly polishing of the brass.

Lectors read the Old and New Testament lessons and lead the Prayers of the People.

Ushers, greeters, and the entire congregation play a vital role in welcoming members and visitors alike as part of being a vibrant, warm, and welcoming church to all worshipers.

We believe in sharing the Good News of 
Christ and assisting those less fortunate.

Outreach and Missionary Support is a regular part of our church life.  We assist financially in supporting three missionaries in other countries, the Presiding Bishop’s Fund, and the local Madison Emergency Services   Association. Monthly outreach offerings are collected for various needy causes.

We hope you and your children feel 
welcomed and included in our service.

You are welcome to be a visitor for as long as you like.  Membership opportunities are also available.

We are a church family that also plays together. 

A friendship coffee hour follows our Sunday worship services.  It’s a great time to meet and greet while nibbling on refreshments.

Annual events scattered throughout the year include a potluck picnic with games for the children and a pancake dinner cooked and served by our young adults.
