Still looking for a summer experience for your youth group, but don’t have time to plan it? Individuals or a whole youth group are invited to join First UMC Madison’s youth on either of their mission trips this summer. A unique mission trip experience that through service work, relationship building, and discussions we’ll also work at understanding the systems that perpetuate the disparities we witness. A college trip is also happening alongside the high school trip to Appalachia. Let’s partner together!

We have an opportunity for your church to support Northcott Neighborhood House (NNH). Another HVAC unit at NNH needs to be replaced. Northcott was able to replace some units last year because of your generosity. This particular unit services many of the classrooms. We are fortunate that we have had a mild winter, but students are still inconvenienced and we'd like to complete the replacement as soon as possible. Any donation your church, or individual members of your church, can make will be greatly appreciated. If you would like additional information, you may NNH at 414-372-3770. We thank you in advance for your support.
(Unfortunately no hard cover books can be received since shipping them to Uganda is cost prohibitive.)
