We are worshipping in the sanctuary at 10AM!

After 16 long months of social distancing, we get to come together for in-person worship! We will sing, pray, see one another, and meet new people! We will now be following the new Dane County Public Health advisory statement which is requiring masks be work for all inside events regardless of vaccination status.
Many of you have expressed your appreciation for the virtual worship service as it enables those with diabilities or limited mobility more flexibility in how they attend church. Currently, we do not have the technical ability (camera and sound system) that will allow us to simultaneously hold an in-person service and live-stream the worship service. We are evaluating different options to address this problem. In the meantime, we will continue to post the pre-recorded message from Pastor Paul.
We are now worshiping in-person Sundays at 10AM followed by a fellowship time!
Our worship service has a laid-back atmosphere that welcomes everyone of all ages and walks of life.
We believe that community makes a difference in our lives and the lives of others. We strive to build a strong community of Christians at Monona UMC through study and worship. After the worship service we have a fellowship hour that is hosted by different members each week. This is also a time for us to meet as a community and discuss issues relevant to our church and the greater Madison area. Find out for yourself what Monona UMC has to offer. Please visit us in person as we worship outside or attend our service virtually!
As we emerge from this pandemic, we need to continue to keep in touch with one another by telephoning or meeting in small groups. The word “worship” actually means “the work of the people,” and we can continue to work virtually or in person by:
1. Reaching out to one another just to check in with one another and see that we are alright, mentally and physically
2. Asking if others have enough home essentials, groceries, etc
3. Donating our time or resources to groups that provide for the needy and advocate for the oppressed.
I really think this is how we can be the church right now, and not just for each other but for our neighbors as well.
Prayers, peace, and health
