Minister’s Welcome

We’re currently a church in transition, seeking our next settled pastor, but we welcome you to our community of faith and life!

On Sunday, October 14, Rev. Matt McCaffrey officially joined us as our long-awaited Interim Minister. Matt comes to us from the Waterford Congregational UCC where he has served as Pastor since 2013. He brings to our doors the many talents that he has cultivated over 30 years of ministry, including a musical background, journalism experience, skills in graphic arts and “computer whispering.” His style is approachable, down to earth and compassionate.

Matt is particularly interested in the disciplines of science and theology–how they intersect, where they diverge, and how each is best used to understand our human condition. It’s what drives his work. Matt says, “God blessed me with a mind that appreciates scientific method and inquiry, understands technology intuitively, and has room for both the “head” of scientific knowledge and the “heart” of God’s presence imbued in the universe.”

We feel blessed and excited to welcome Rev. McCaffrey as we embark on this next journey in the life of our church. Please join us.

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.

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