Collaborative Creativity

This will be a collaborative and participatory service celebrating our creativity! We know our congregation is full of creatives of all kinds and we want to give everyone the opportunity to share their talents. We are inviting everyone and anyone to bring something they have created to the service, whether that be a work of art, a favorite recipe, a piece of writing or an instrument to create a song! If you created it, we want to see and share in it. Please email Genevieve for more information.

Share the Plate

  • The Share the Plate for May 28 and June 4 is One City Schools, a non-profit running public pre-schools and grade schools with a Village model of raising successful children. Its programming is carefully designed to overcome the large and persistent school achievement gap for Black and Brown children in Madison. The way the school and its curriculum is structured, with connection to the community and the families served, offers a model for restructuring public education. It focuses on the needs of black and brown children, and, at the same time, is open to all.
