Church Unbound ~ Wednesdays, 6:30 pm
Church Unbound is our summer weekly gathering. The location varies and so does the content. We might play games, watch a movie, sing songs together, make art, go kayaking… the whole point is to continue gathering regularly and enjoy some of the unique opportunities of summer in Madison!

WISCONSIN WELCOME ~ August 30 - September 30
During Wisconsin Welcome, we host some special events designed specifically to help you meet new people and start the year off right. Join us for food, fun, and friends!
Open House ~ Wednesday, August 30, and Thursday, August 31, 7 – 10 pm
Games, snacks, crafts, and a relaxed atmosphere where it’s easy to make new friends. Come any time from 7 to 10 pm!
Cookie Break ~ Friday, September 1, 2 – 4 pm
One of our most iconic events and a great way to meet new people. We set up on the patio and give away hundreds — yes, hundreds— of free Insomnia Cookies. Plus, we break out the prize wheel. You might win some candy, a super-cool sticker, a mug, or a crisp high-five.
Welcome Worship ~ Every Sunday in September, 4:30 pm
If you’re looking for a bit of calm amidst the craziness of a new school year, Welcome Worship is a great place to start. Plus, it’s an easy way to meet other students who are interested in finding community on campus. Worship starts upstairs in the chapel and ends downstairs in Lower Hall where we’ll eat a delicious home-cooked meal together. We are an open and affirming church where everyone is invited to bring ALL of who they are!
***Check out our Worship page for a breakdown of what Sunday worship looks like at Pres House.
Trivia Night ~ Monday, September 4, 7 – 8:30 pm
Come alone or with a group of (up to) five. Either way, we’ll make sure you have a chance to meet some new people, flex your trivia muscles, and win some cash! We guarantee to stump you at least once.
Midweek Morsels Kickoff ~ Wednesday, September 6, 4 – 6 pm
The kickoff for everyone’s favorite midweek gathering — Midweek Morsels! Every Wednesday from 4-6 pm during the semester, we serve up some fresh homemade baked goods along with free coffee and tea. This week, we’re having Greenbush donuts! Come to study, relax, hang out, play games, or all of the above!
Grad Coffee Hour Kickoff ~ Thursday, September 7, 8:30 – 9:30 am
Grad Coffee meets every Thursday morning during the semester. There’s always free & fresh coffee and tea; at our kickoff, we also buy a bunch of Greenbush donuts to share! If you’re looking for a place to connect with grad students outside of your department — or if you just want a free cup of coffee before you jump into your day — Grad Coffee is for you.
