  • Lent at Middle Church February 7, 2013 Lent is a time of preparation beginning with Ash Wednesday and ending on Maundy Thursday. The season lasts for about 40 days and commemorates the 40 days Jesus spent in the desert before beginning his public ministry. Many Christians practice prayer, repentance, fasting, and alms-giving during the Lenten season. All these ancient practices have the power to propel us further and deeper in our relationship with God if we let them. Lent can test our minds, bodies, and spirits if we are open and willing to endure that journey – I hope you will journey with your family of faith to unexpected places this Lenten season.

  • Hurricane Sandy Relief Work November 8, 2012 This Saturday, November 10, we are organizing a group of volunteers to travel together to the Rockaways. We will leave in vans at 8:30 am from Middle Church. We are planning to return to Middle before dark. There has been heavy traffic jams when volunteers depart the area, so we can't anticipate the exact time of our return. But we expect no later than 7:30 pm. RSVP is required.
