Reality Kids Christmas Play Our very own Steven and Lauren Wells, who run theater camps for kids, are hoping to have a Christmas play this year for our church with our kiddos. For those interested, there will be a few rehearsals, with the hopes of performing A Charlie Brown Christmas on Sunday, December 16th. Our hope is to have our regular Sunday gathering that morning, then have the performance afterward, along with some Christmas goodies. If you think your child would be interested, they are having an interest meeting for parents immediately after the gathering this coming Sunday, October 14th, in the teachers lounge at Madison. 

Ghana Trip Update Those who were at the gathering on Sunday heard a brief update from the Fullers about their trip to Ghana this summer. This coming Sunday, October 14th, Sarah and Grace are going to share more pictures and stories from their 10 day summer adventure where they ministered with a Joni & Friends camp offering help to families with disabilities. Join us this Sunday at 9:00 AM in the Madison Elementary Library before our regular Sunday worship gathering. All are invited to learn more and celebrate what God is doing through special needs ministry in Ghana. Childcare will not be provided, but kids are welcome to come and participate too.

Baptisms We are celebrating baptism as part of our regular gathering on Sunday, October 14th. If you are interested in making a public profession of faith in Jesus, please contact Paul via e-mail at for more information. We look forward to commemorating what God is doing among us!

Reality Foundations Class If you are new, wanting to get connected or desiring to learn more about Reality, we are having a 2 week class on Tuesday, October 23rd and 30th. The goal for Reality Foundations is to give you a better understanding of who we are as a church and invite you to participate with greater clarity. The class will be from 6:00 to 8:00 PM each week in the Furubotten (Oct. 23) and Jones (Oct. 30) homes. Get more info and RSVP on Realm.

Halloween Party On Saturday, October 27th, our teens are invited to a Halloween party at Daniel and Carissa's home on the property of Black Lake Bible Camp! We'll get together, clad in our finest costumes, and do our best to rot our teeth! Invite your friends to join us. The party starts at 6:18 PM and will last until 9 PM. More information is on Realm.

Realm We are excited to introduce a new and improved communication platform for our church family. While The City has served us well over the past few years, this new tool should allow us to enjoy the same functionality with better tech support and new features. Those who had City accounts will be invited to create a new login password and all your existing groups will transfer. New users can either follow the links on our website or go HERE to login.

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!
