A CMDA Ministry


Who can register?

The Side By Side ministry is designed for wives of physicians and dentists, including students, residents, fellows and practicing healthcare professionals. We have an open door policy and do not prohibit anyone from attending, medical or otherwise. However, we will remain an outreach ministry for physicians spouses in the Madison, WI area.

At the present time, we are a women’s ministry but recognize the growing, legitimate need for a ministry to female physicians’ husbands. Any men who may be interested in developing such community is encouraged to reach out to our national organization.

Do I have to register before I attend a bible study?

No. you do not need to register to visit a bible study but we would love a RSVP to sidebysidemadison@gmail.com to let us know you are coming and if you will be bringing any children so that we can make sure to be ready with adequate childcare ratios.

Do you offer childcare?

Yes. We offer childcare for Bible study meetings. We have two childcare workers for our 6 months 0 2 year old classroom and two childcare workers for our 3-5 year old classroom.

Can I bring a friend?

Yes, friends are always welcome. They don’t have to be married to a physician to attend, but that’s the focus of our ministry.

Do I have to register to attend social or service project events?

No, but we would love an RSVP to know you are coming.

Is there a cost involved to be a part of SBS?

Yes. We do have semester fees that help us pay for childcare and operational costs. Fees are $35 for those in training and $45 post training. It can be paid by cash or check to SBS-Madison and turned into Kim or Jackie at the meetings on Fridays.
