Worship

Due to the coronavirus (covid-19), Madison Mennonite Church is meeting in a variety of ways for Christian Education (4pm) and Worship (5pm), both virtually and in-person. Please contact us to learn more about the different opportunities for joining us during this time.

We meet for worship at 5pm on Sunday evenings. Currently, we meet for “all-church” worship on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th Sundays via Zoom or in a hybrid format. On the 2nd and 4th Sundays, we meet for worship in small groups (Koinonia Groups). If you’d like to join us for any of these worship services, please contact us for more information! You are most welcome!

Christian Education is offered before worship at 4pm, Sept.-June.

Koinonia Group Worship Liturgies: In Sept. 2020, we shifted our worship approach to include twice-monthly small group worship. On the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month, we meet in “Koinonia Groups” for worship, fellowship, nurture, and Bible Study. All are welcome to join in these services as well — please contact us for more information.

What To Expect

On an average Sunday, about 100 of us gather for worship. Our services tend to be multi-voiced, leaning into the diverse gifts of our worship leaders, congregants, and pastor. We follow both the Revised Common Lectionary and the Spirit’s guiding into themes beyond the lectionary.  Worship consists of music (often hymns sung a capella or with accompaniment), Bible readings, stories, a children’s time, a sermon/reflection, sharing of joys and concerns, and prayer. Shared leadership is a key element of our worship services and of all aspects of our community life. As such, members of the congregation share leadership with the pastor to plan, lead, and produce the worship service. Dress is casual and kids are welcome to participate in the service.

Directions

Worship services are held Sunday evenings beginning at 5:00pm. We meet in the Orchard Ridge United Church of Christ building located at the corner of Gilbert Road and Tolman Terrace a few blocks south of the intersection of Whitney Way and Gilbert Road.  See the map for detailed directions.
