HELP BRING CHRISTMAS JOY TO THE CHILDREN AT THE RANCH:  For the past four years, gift cards in lieu of gifts have been requested from the church and friends in the community for the children at the Madison Youth Ranch.

Visa, Master Card, and American Express cards are also useful. Please make sure that the donation amount is written somewhere on the gift card. If you would like to donate a gift card, you can bring it to the office before December 15th.

If you would like to serve communion one Sunday, please let the church office know.
