Advent 2017 We are now in our annual preparation for the celebration of Jesus’ birth called Advent. Come join us every Sunday for the four weeks leading up to Christmas as we sing, light the Advent candles, and begin our new Advent series in the book of Lamentations called "Tidings of Comfort & Joy."

Foster Care "Comfort Bags" Following in the footsteps of last year's success, we are once again collecting "Comfort Bags" to distribute to kids who are removed from their home or are in transit to a new foster home. The bags, which are explicitly for teens this year, are kept at DSHS and given out as the kids come in. Each week through Advent, there will be a tree on the back table with paper ornaments that provide information regarding what to pack for each bag. Our goal is to once again collect 100 bags by Sunday, December 24th to bless the Foster Care teens of Thurston County. Please join us in responding to the generosity we have received in Jesus!
Christmas Eve Come join us for the culmination of Advent as we celebrate the birth of Christ together on Sunday, December 24th. We will meet together at our regular 10:00 AM time at Madison Elementary School to sing, focus on the birth of Jesus, light the final Christ candle, and enjoy some Christmas snacks. Bring your family and friends! With Christmas Eve falling on a Sunday this year, there will be no evening service.

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!
