Welcome

We’re glad you’re here. We invite you to take a look around and join us for worship either in person or via livestream.

Before you scroll away…

I’m so glad you’re here and there’s one thing I want to make sure you know:

You are loved.

Life can make this hard to trust. But it’s true. God created you with love – for love. And in this time, more than ever, I believe it’s why we need church.

A lot of us have been hurt by communities of faith, so I understand why you might be skeptical.

But love is something we just can’t do alone.

Love is a gift from God. Actually, the scriptures say that God is love and those who abide in love abide in God.

So, at Christ Pres, we don’t take love for granted. We believe we have received the sacred trust of God’s love in human hands. And it’s the great privilege of life to share in it with one another and with all whom God joins our paths.

That brings me back to you: If I can be of help along your journey seeking faith and beloved community, please send me a note. I’d love to meet you.

-Pastor Jessica

What we’re about

Christ Presbyterian Church puts God’s love into action here and now. We share a remarkable Presbyterian heritage of thoughtful, forward-thinking self-reflection and a roll-up-your-sleeves attitude to doing God’s work. But our path is unfinished. We are continually co-creating with God a more just world for all.

Our Vision

Christ Presbyterian Church envisions a world that is loving and inclusive. We unite with God to be a worshiping community without barriers, a sanctuary for all. We seek to follow Jesus by doing justice, loving mercy, and walking humbly with God.”

Front of Building 720x616

Drawing on the rich heritage of what it means to be a Presbyterian congregation, CPC strives to be a place where all people can gather to learn and grow in faith while building meaningful community as we co-create with God to build a more just world.

English Conversation Time

English Conversation Time is an informal gathering of international students, visiting scholars and Americans for English practice, friendship and cross-cultural exchanges. 

This program provides international students and visiting scholars a safe, relaxed, outside-the-classroom opportunity to interact with individual Americans, American families and other international community members drawn from diverse backgrounds. American volunteers also benefit from the program as they learn from participants about life in other corners of the world. It’s a great way for them to expand their horizons and learn about the different cultures represented in Madison as well as to develop friendships with individuals from other countries. The Center for International Education at Madison College, English as a Second Language (ESL) at UW-Madison, the Wisconsin English as a Second Language Institute (WESLI), and the Dane County Literacy Network all view our English Conversation Time program as a strategic partner that provides a supportive environment for their students and helps them connect with the Madison community.
