Madison Giving Tree As a church that rents out Madison Elementary School, we want to be much more than just tenants. We want to be partners that seek the wellbeing and common thriving of their staff, students, and community. Please consider stopping by the “Giving Tree” posted on the wall by the front entrance top claim a specific school supply for one of Madison’s teachers or staff. Simply pick up an item description, purchase it, and return it to the school the following Sunday with the label attached. Thanks for being “good news” to Madison!
