Middle Virtual Gatherings

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

A New Opportunity: In this time of social distancing, get to know other members of Middle by exchanging emails or physical letters through a new Middle Pen Pals program. If you are interested in participating, please fill out this form. Inspired by conversations during the congregational meeting, this is another way to build community, learn about each other and safely connect with our Middle family. Feel free to email Anna at annapolovick@gmail.com with any questions! 

Note: You can call 212-477-0666 at any time to hear a prayer, scripture and reflection from a middle pastor, choose option "4" for English, option "5" for Spanish. Offerings are updated each Monday at 8:30 a.m.

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!
