MINISTRIES GUIDE DISCOVER HOW YOU CAN Get Connected Deepen Your Faith Volunteer


A churchwide focus, there’s more challenges everyone to live out four practices:

Reach Out

Madison Park Church isn’t content with being “just us.” We continually strive to reach out to our community—and around the world—serving our fellow neighbors.

Welcome In

Sure, we’re a big church, but there’s plenty of room for more! We’re committed to welcoming new folks each week and to helping everyone feel right at home.

Go Deep

We love hanging out with the Madison Park family, but we’re not just about socializing. We encourage everyone to get involved in a small group discussion or a Bible study class to help them grow in their faith.

Look Up

We believe God is living, active and working for our good. So as we pray, we watch expectantly for His intervention in ways that far exceed anything we could imagine.
