Rev. Jen Bloesch has accepted a Letter of Call to become the full-time Designated Interim Pastor of the Community of Hope for 6 months, beginning on June 27, 2022.

She is originally from the Madison area. Her most recent job was as Interim Minister at the Middleton Community Church. She also worked as a Program Director for The Crossing Campus Ministries.  

Some of her previous employment also includes being a farm worker, a FairShare Community Supported Agriculture outreach intern and a Peer Advisor at the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences Career Services in Madison.  

The Search Committee (which included members from both Hope and Advent) was very enthusiastic about Rev. Bloesch after interviewing her and watching some of her sermons on-line. She has met with Pastor Nick and she is looking forward to being a part of the MCC ecumenical partnership. Rev. Bloesch is particularly interested in the MCC’s environmental stewardship programs and social justice issues.

As a Designated Interim Pastor, Rev. Bloesch would be eligible for consideration as a future settled pastor for the Community of Hope. It is with great joy that we welcome her to Hope and the MCC community.

Help on the MCC Grounds

Lois Komai will be on the church prairie at 9:00am on Saturday, 6:30 on Monday evening, and 9:00am on Thursdays.  We'll weed yellow rocket mustard on the bird berms prairie as part of the Tending Soul and Soil. 

Yellow rocket, a non-native, is setting seed and should be pulled out in the next week or so.  These tenacious plants are amazing. They produce hundreds of seeds and spread by root runners.  We know we will see their children again next year. However, there are fewer of them and more prairie plants, particularly the delicate prairie hyacinths that is flourishing in May throughout the bird berm prairie.  

Come appreciate the miracle of these plants, their beauty, their adaptability, and their offerings as food and shelter for insects.


Can You Help Water?

The MCC Land Use Umbrella Group (LUUG) is inviting you to help water the flower beds this summer.  It is pretty easy; just turn on the water and aim.  Training will be provided by Nancy Greenwald, LUUG Landscaping member.  If interested, please let Nancy Greenwald ( or Jean Einerson ( know.  We plan to use Sign Up Genius to sign up for dates.

Thank you for your consideration.
