“Move up Sunday” The school year is fast approaching and for some Reality Kids that means a new Sunday School class! Kids entering Kindergarten this fall will attend the K-3 class, and those entering 4th grade will be in The Path, a class for just 4th and 5th graders. We will transition those kids on Sunday, September 8th.

We will meet shortly after the end of our Gathering in the teacher’s lounge at Madison Elementary. Please RSVP to let us know you are coming. And if you have any food restrictions, please also let us know. We look forward to seeing you!

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!
