How We Worship

"Middle Church consistently produces the best progressive worship in the country."
Macky Alston, Auburn Media

No matter whom you love, no matter how you look, no matter what you do, Middle Church has something specifically for you. You are welcome, just as you are as you come through the door. Join us for raucous and joyful celebrations at 11:15 AM on Sundays.

Our worship is a celebration that encourages a more-than-Sunday-morning faith! Walk up our steps on Second Avenue and experience a warm, radical welcome from the greeters at the door and the folk in the pews. You are sure to see someone right away who reminds you of you! Our liturgy and worship will feel familiar in form, but you will be surprised by creative sermons that will provoke your mind and stir your soul. You will also be surprised by the extensive use of the arts in worship. Our music—gospel, spirituals, stunning choral singing and classical music, and everything from Bach to Broadway to the Beatles—will encourage your toes to tap and your heart to soar!

Our historic sanctuary holds not only our incredible cultural and ethnic diversity, but dance, puppet theater, the dramatic and visual arts, and our diverse expressions of faith. We think of this as 'Rehearsing the Reign of God' here, now on Earth.
