This I Believe – 2024

In this service, we’ll hear from three JRUUC members about what they believe, why they believe it, and how their belief has transformed them.

  • The Share the Plate recipient for March 17 and 24 will be the Teacher Support Network, a program of the Madison Public Schools Foundation, which helps MMSD teachers buy needed resources for their students. From pencils to snacks to winter gear, this fund allows teachers an option other than their personal funds to address unmet student needs. They were nominated by Joan Kemble.
