Middle Virtual Gatherings

***REGISTRATION FOR ALL PROGRAMMING ENDS 1 HOUR BEFORE THE EVENT BEGINS. SO PLEASE MAKE SURE TO RSVP AHEAD OF TIME!***

Note: Beginning Monday, May 25th, you can also call 212-477-0666 x345 at any time to hear a prayer, scripture and reflection from a middle pastor. Offerings are updated each Monday at 8:30 a.m. This will replace the previously hosted Monday morning Zoom prayer.

Although we have canceled all in-person worship and programming due to the coronavirus outbreak, we are committed to providing ongoing opportunities to gather online. We may be socially distanced, but spiritually we remain connected; trusting that the God who created and cares for us will guide our community through this crisis in love!
