General News…
 
New Sermon Series has begun…
At the turn of a new year we all want to have a better year than last year. We all want to be better people. We all want a better life. The question becomes do I become that person, how do I find that life.  The answer is simply become a committed follower of Jesus. The emphasis of our ministry at Madison Hills this winter is going to be on discipleship. A disciple is simply an adherent, a student, a follower. When we become Christians we are called to become disciples of Jesus. We are going to travel through the Sermon on the Mount, Matthew chapters 5, 6, 7. In so doing we will learn what it means to be a follower of Jesus and the good life it can give us. Join us for this new series!
