"The Gathering Meal" is a time where people from the Madison Area are invited to come and receive a hot meal at no cost. The meal time is every Monday from 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm. This ministry was started in October 2004 as a way to reach out locally to those in need.  Churches, businesses, and other organizations in the area all take turns serving the meal.

  Anyone in the Madison community is welcome to come for nourishment and to nourish others with their fellowship.  The meal is served every Monday of the month, except when Monday falls on a major holiday.  The Gathering meets in the Fellowship Hall of the United Methodist Church.
