On this rainy day in Madison, SD, we are excitedly looking ahead to sunny spring and summer!

We are thinking about…

*How awesome the Sunday School children were yesterday, May 11th as they led worship with their singing and reading. What joy in their voices!

*Graduation Recognition on Sunday, May 18th during coffee hour and at 10:30am worship

*Campfire worship on Wednesday nights at 8pm during June and July. You will find details in the bulletin and newsletter

*Starting our summer worship schedule on May 25th- Worship at 9am in the Sanctuary and at 10:30am at Lake Herman State Park


*A new roof

*Vacation Bible School in August

…And we are wondering about what exciting things God is up to in our community. Things we can’t even imagine yet!


Blessings to you this day!

Pastor Elizabeth
