Small groups are a great way to make the huge campus smaller and make meaningful friendships with people who can support you and pray for you during the semester. You will also learn something new and have a chance to grow deeper in your faith. Give one a try!
Open Undergraduate Small Group, Mondays @ 7:00 PM
Get together each week with other undergrads for good conversation and support. We spend time checking in, engaging with topics that the group chooses and praying for one another.
“What is the Bible?” Discussion Group ~ Wednesdays, 7:00 – 8:30 PM (Group meets on September 19, 26; October 3, 10, 17, 31; November 7, 14)
Who chose the books for the bible? How did it come to us? Why are there four different versions of the gospel? What do we do with the difficult and seemingly outdated passages? Each week we’ll watch a short video (Animate Bible) and have a time of discussion. All are welcome!
Young Professional Small Group ~ Wednesdays, 7:00 – 8:30 PM (beginning Sept. 26th)
The Young Professional small group is for folks who are working in the Madison area. We ask people to make a commitment to attending regularly so that the group can become a safe and supportive space for us to grow deeper in our relationships with one another. Sign up below.
Coffee Tours (Graduate Students), Thursdays @ 8:30 AM
Come for an hour on Thursday mornings for meaningful conversations and connecting with other graduate students; check the Graduate Students page or Pres House Facebook page for locations each week. Sign up for email updates on weekly locations below.
Freshmen Small Group, Thursdays @ 7:30 PM
Join with other new students to build relationships with one another and God. Each week we spend time checking in, engaging with topics that the group chooses (i.e., navigating the transition to college, developing healthy relationships, exploring our questions about faith, talking about hot issues, etc.), and praying for one another. Past participants say that this experience has been an important source of support and connection during their first year at school.
Two+/Deacons ~ Mondays, 6:00 – 7:00 PM
“Where two or more are gathered, I am there with them…” (Matthew 18:20)
At Pres House we practice connecting, knowing, and supporting one another to bear witness to Christ’s grace in our community. We do this through acts of encouragement and compassion, seeking to remind those in need that they are not alone. Join us to pray, write cards, deliver meals, and more as we engage in acts of love in service to the community.
Prayer^3, Wednesdays @ 6-6:30 PM
We believe that part of being a faithful follower of Jesus means we are called to pray for our community, nation, and world. We gather each week to pray in three ways in 10-minute segments: 1) becoming aware of what is going on in our world, 2) reflecting on scripture and asking God to guide us, 3) responding through various actions (i.e., calling legislators, writing letters to our neighbors).
Bake, Pray, Love ~ Tuesdays, 5-7 PM to bake; following Wednesdays, 8:30 AM to deliver treats (Sept. 18; Oct. 2, 16; Nov. 6, 20; Dec. 4)
Twice a month we bake treats and share them with our neighbors the following morning.
