The Last Week Lenten Study:
From 6:30 – 8 pm a study focusing on John Dominick Crossan’s book, The Last Week, will be offered. “Part historical exploration, part theological inquiry, part meditation, (this) series… vividly brings to life the key moments leading up to Jesus’ death and resurrection and provides space for personal reflection.”

First Friday Fellowship
First Friday of each month starting at 11:30 a.m.
We’ll be taking a field trip to Edgewood College on Friday, March 6th to tour the Edgewood College Art Exhibit: Good to the Last Drop by Valaria Tatera. The exhibit ends on March 8th, so it might be your last chance to see it. Valaria Tatera is a member of the Bad River Band of Lake Superior Chippewa, who creates social awareness of contemporary Indigenous issues through her art. Common threads running throughout the work investigate the intersections of ethnicity, gender, suicide, missing indigenous women, commerce, and water quality.
We’ll meet at Edgewood College at 11:00 a.m. for a guided tour of this exhibit. If you wish to carpool from the church, meet at MUCC at 10:30 a.m. Parking spaces will be provided by the college. A golf cart will be available for those who would like assistance getting from the parking lot to the gallery. Please indicate on the sign-up sheet if you would be using this option. The tour will last approximately 45 minutes, ending at about 11:45. A 12:00 noon reservation has been made for those who want to go to lunch at the Laurel Tavern, located at 2505 Monroe St, Madison, WI 53711.
There is a sign-up sheet in the niche if you intend to go to one or both of these. Also, if you would like to carpool, we need to know if you need a ride or are willing to drive. You must sign up for this field trip. It is necessary that we have an accurate count of attendees both for the exhibit and the restaurant. The deadline to sign up is Friday, February 28, 2020
Scripture and Scones
Wednesdays from 8 to 9 a.m.
Every week, a group of folks gather in our library to look at the Scripture texts that will be used the following Sunday. These are often very lively discussions — and the baked goods and coffee aren’t bad either. Anyone is welcome to join at any time.
To create and promote opportunities for religious education, spiritual growth, and intergenerational connections for our members and friends throughout their lifespans.
