We usually have soup, salad, and some kid-friendly things like hot dogs and mac and cheese. If you’d like to bring something to share, please let the Chair of the Hospitality Committee know. If you’d like to donate a few dollars in lieu of bringing an item, that is welcome.
Every other month, on the second Sunday of the month, bakery items are sold after the service by Just Bakery, a program of Madison Urban Ministry.
