Madison First United Methodist Church fulfills the need for a safe place
to consider and respond to the Gospel Message. We insure that all those
we encounter experience the warm and helpful support they need as they
walk life's journey. We commit ourselves to living the Biblical model of
We fulfill the Great Commission as we make disciples, baptizing them and helping them grow in obedience to Christ. (Matthew 28: 19-20).
We are convinced that what matters to God also matters to us. We believe that no Church can stand still. Its relationship with God is a journey that must move forward or die. We follow the example of Jesus, serving people as we promote justice and fulfill their physical and spiritual needs. We stand firmly on our heritage as United Methodist which is grounded in the primacy of Scripture as informed by Christian tradition, enlivened in experience, and tested by reason. Christ centered worship, prayer, giving, and service represent natural responses to a meaningful relationship with our living Savior.

She is doing really well, and we thank and praise God for His love, grace, mercy, compassion and answered prayer. What an Awesome God we serve!! Her second treatment is June 22nd and I am asking God to continue the miracle.

We are truly thankful. Please continue to pray. Your prayers mean so much to us and we are so thankful for them. May God bless and keep you all. We love you.” Tony & Frances Hughey
