We've found that discovering and growing in Jesus is best done in community.  We offer a variety of groups to help you connect with others and grow in your faith. 

  • Women's prayer Group

    Led by Liz Kravitz, hosted by AJ Jonson

    Meets on the last Thursday of the month at 7:00pm.

    Let's meet up to pray together!  This group will mostly be focused on personal prayer, and will be a safe place to process through life's up's and down's, while inviting Jesus into those things through community.  

    A little about Liz -- She is a proud Bostonian and is on her second tour of Madison.  She moved here 6 years ago to intern at foundry414 church, then moved to sunny California with her now husband!  They joyfully came back to open arms in Madison this summer and bought a house on the East side.  Liz works in non-profit education, helping high school students prepare for their future.  Although injured, she is working hard to get back to running (her favorite thing!) and enjoys people, spending time with her husband Cody, and puppy, Bert.  

  • Social Justice group

    Led and hosted by Melissa Bennett

    Meets on the second Sunday of each month at 5pm for a potluck dinner, followed by a short devotion and discussion. Children are welcome. 

    We are a group of people who care about issues of injustice and inequality in our community and know that God does too. We meet and discuss these issues, supporting each other through the lamenting process and encouraging each other to keep a hopeful, empowered perspective knowing that God is powerful and cares for all. We work to effect change in our community through supporting Give Back Sundays and encouraging each other in our own individual pursuits.

  • Book clubbing

    Please join us for a a book discussion  on the third Wednesday of every other month from 7:00 - 8:30.  . We meet near Monroe street. Margaret Szczykuwoticz and AJ Johnson are co-leading this casual book discussion.  Our co-ed  book club is inclusive and non-discriminatory. There is no need to read the book to join!  

    February’s selection is:  The Remains of the Day,by Kazuo Ishiguro, who won the Booker Prize for this novel.  Set in Britain during the interwars years (1918-1939), this book is a must-read for for history buffs and Anglophiles.  Join us on Thursday, February 21st as we discuss the details of this nuanced novel. We will be meeting at the Johnson residence.  

    If you do not have time to read the book, you can watch the movie The Remains of the Day--a Merchant Ivory film. The book and the film are available through the public library.

    We look forward to a lively discussion as we unpack the themes and allusions presented in this work. Even if you have not read the book, or did not have time to watch the movie, you are welcome to join us.  Chocolate, wine, and other beverages will be served.
