Love Power

June 22, 2016

Dear Middle Family,

Middle Church is building a movement for justice and love, built on your light.

In times like these, when tragedies are used as fuel for hatred, thousands of people of faith and moral courage are looking to Middle to spread hope, truth, and light. Together, we can shine our light and change the story.

In the last 11 months, together, we celebrated our LGBTQ family as a gift from God. We also fed families with free bags of groceries. We offered free meals to the hungry in local parks. We created a national conference to teach revolutionary love as an antidote to racism. We provided our diverse children a place to learn about God's loving presence. We lifted the hearts of people—from Brooklyn to France—listening to Middle music and sermons online.

Middle is a beacon. Powered by God. Love. And You.

Because of the costs to upgrade Collegiate Church facilities, our program funding is being cut by tens of thousands of dollars every year. We need YOUR voice and dollars to build the movement for justice and love.

Our fiscal year ends June 30, and we need $85,000 to make our goal. When Joey Morelli threw down her match challenge one Sunday, Charles Randolph-Wright immediately gave $10,000!

Whether $10,000 or $10, your gift matters—every dollar matters. Can you help us make our goal?

Donate by June 30 and you will receive a personal note and photo showing what life-saving work your dollars fund.

In these days, with so much violence and hatred culture, we are walking in the light of God, as we build the Beloved Community for all of us.

We need you to build this community. Will you join us? Let's change the future together.

In gratitude for your partnership in the movement, and your love, which powers Middle Church,

Rev. Dr. Jacqueline Lewis
