On November 11th, 2016 our Advisory Board met and discussed the future of our chapel/office space on the Northside of Madison. We especially took note the upkeep of a physical space has been a serious drain on our monthly budget with donations falling dramatically compared to the prior year. We all agreed at this juncture we need to cut expenses where we can and as soon as we can.
It was not a decision we as a board wanted to make, but it was necessary and financially responsible on our part to do so. It was also noted most of our Madison members now join with us in our virtual classroom that we use with our ACIM students across the country, i.e. video and phone conferencing. Because of this, there did not seem a need to continue to pay rent and expenses for a physical site.
We enjoy the work we do together with all of you in keeping to the study and practice of A Course in Miracles. As you know ACIM is our only focus at MiraclesOne and we do not dilute it with other philosophies, books or studies, so we and our students benefit from the pure essence of what Jesus is teaching in this spiritual text. This is what we have been guided to do for over two decades and we follow Holy Spirit’s lead.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR ACIM STUDENTS IN THE MADISON AREA?
Please know how important you are to us! We will still continue to meet albeit in a different form. We meet on the 2nd Sunday of the month as an in-person study. We also have potlucks, dinner outings, brunches, and other social gatherings.
Our other studies and classes will continue as per usual via video and phone conferencing. Sundays will continue as a livestreaming event on Facebook and our website. Except of course for the in-person meeting on the 2nd Sunday. There will be no conferencing or livestreaming on that Sunday.
We will still offer our two retreats a year at Bethel Horizons Art Ventures Retreat Center. We have one scheduled in May and one in September of 2017. As well as two retreats scheduled for 2018. We hope you will join us for these phenomenal retreats!
No monthly meeting in May due to Mother’s Day, May 14th

Our Center is run completely by volunteers including our ministers. Your donations are appreciated to help to pay the myriad of expenses we encounter for our ministry: rent, video/phone conferencing and phone services, internet, utilities, online storage for audio/video archives, postage, and more . Suggested donation per most study sessions/classes is $5-15. However, no one is turned away from any of our programs or services due to lack of funds. Just ask.
