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. 

  • The Advent Experience

    Led by Alex Mikulas & Neil Salyapongse

    Join us for four weeks or gatherings focused on communal participation in the Advent season. Together, we will try to experience what it means to wait in anticipation for the Christmas season and help orient ourselves towards embracing the mystery that is Christmas day.  

    We'll meet at 7:00pm on Monday nights from November 26 through December 17th. The location is to be determined.

    Email us at or talk to Neil or Alex if you are interested in attending!

  • Women's prayer Group

    Led by Liz Kravitz, hosted by AJ Jonson

    Meets every Thursday at 7:00pm, starting on September 27th.

    Let's meet up every week 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. If you are interested in joining the group or just want more info, email us at

  • Whiskey & the word

  • Book clubbing

    Please join us for a Christmas-themed book discussion on Wednesday, December 19th, 2018 from 7:00 - 8:30.  . We meet near Monroe street. Margaret Szczykuwoticz and AJ Johnson are co-leading this co-ed book discussion.  If you need more information or directions, please talk to AJ or Margaret.

    In October we discussed Howards End by E.M. Forster.   In a prelude to World War I, the setting is England where many social issues were raised. It was a great book to discuss with friends.

    For our December selection, we will continue with the theme of the Great War. December's choice is Last Christmas in Paris co-authored by Hazel Gaynor and Heather Webb.  With World War I as the backdrop, the setting is England and France (1914-1918 and 1968).  For those who are interested, print and electronic versions are available for checkout from Madison Public Library.

    The Book Club is a completely casual book discussion.  Our book club is inclusive and non-discriminatory. There is no need to read the book to join!  Along with our discussion, we will have decaf, tea, wine, and and Christmas desserts. All are welcome!

  • Sunday Brunch Club

    Let's brunch! We'll meet up after our service on the third Sunday of every month to check out a local brunch hot spot. Each month we'll try something new. If you're interested in joining us, talk to Alicia Kim or email us at
