Welcome to The Living Room Project!

We are truly SO excited that you're here. The Living Room Project is a Summer Fundraising Campaign to raise funds for us to be able to renovate our TWO new spaces at 301 S. Bedford Street here in downtown Madison, WI.


This space will be used for New Culture Church, our campus ministry Chi Alpha, and will be made available to the community as a place to gather.

**When giving, please select Give To: The Living Room Project (NOT general fund)!**



We will be separating The Living Room Project into THREE phases.


Phase ONE: May 16th - June 19th, 2021

Phase TWO: June 20th - July 24th, 2021

Phase THREE: July 25th - August 29th, 2021

PHASE ONE: $15,000.00

Early Childhood room  $1,500

We believe in investing in the next generation. This starts right from the beginning! Our kids have been champions sitting in service with their parents and playing in the back of the room while we wait to have space for them. We want to prioritize creating a space for toddlers to come feel safe, learn about Jesus, and have tons of fun. To do this we will lay down rugs, floor mats, purchase new toys to fit the space, and utilize a safe and secure check in system.
