Minister’s Welcome


Welcome to our community of faith and life!

North Madison Congregational Church UCC is a special place. We offer a spiritual home where you will be loved and cared for and will also have opportunities to know the joy of loving, caring for and serving others based upon your own unique gifts and passions.

We are a community that takes seriously both the head and the heart – a lived faith integrating both the intellectual as well as powerful experience of the Holy in our worship and ministry together.  St. Irenaeus put it well: “The glory of God is a human being fully alive.” We offer a place of both refuge from the buffeting winds of our materialistic world, and also a place where you can grow into the full potential that our God has created in you.  We are an Open and Affirming congregation that affirms the worth and dignity of all creation.

We are a faith community open to all and we invite you to explore the pages of this web site to get a sense of the programs, ministries, and activities of this vital church.   You will find information about our concern for others in our mission projects, our faith formation programs for children, youth and adults, and our wonderful music ministries.   You will see people having fun together!  And it would be even better if you were with us!

We hope you will join us for worship on an upcoming Sunday morning.  Or feel welcome to come to any of the events or activities described here.

Please be in touch with me if I can answer a question, be available for pastoral care, or assist you in your faith journey. Perhaps our paths will cross in the community where I am an active member of the Madison Chamber of Commerce, a board member of Madison ABC, a tutor at St. Martin de Porres Academy (New Haven), a gym rat at Shoreline Fitness (Clinton) or on the tennis courts at Guilford Racquet and Swim Club.

No matter who you are, or where you are on your life journey, you are welcome here!

Rev. Jim Latimer, Pastor
