Volunteer & Serve

Our faith reminds us that we are inextricably bound together; our liberation is linked to each other. Tied up together. We are the hands, feet, and heartbeat of God.

We need your help! For more information about volunteer opportunities, email Elise Tiralli.

Butterfly Ministry is on Hiatus!

Due to cold weather, our weekly feeding ministry is currently on hiatus. However, we still encourage members to get bulk food to drop off at a neighborhood fridge or food pantry! If you’re interested in other ways to serve, please email and we will let you know about upcoming opportunities to distribute coats and gloves.

Butterfly ministry returns March, 2022! Volunteers will gather every Sunday an hour after worship services on the corner of Second Avenue and Houston. Each volunteer will bring 5-10 completed sack lunches. All of the lunches will be prepared in individual kitchens with gloves and face masks worn for safety protocols. We will distribute the lunches throughout Sara Roosevelt Park from Houston to Canal Street. Any remaining lunches will be distributed to Washington Square Park. Please email for more information or to sign-up.

December 5, 2020

A six-alarm fire spread from the building next door and destroyed our beautiful sanctuary. And yet, no fire can stop revolutionary love! Learn how we’re rising from the ashes and what you can do to help.

Find Your People!

Middle hosts small groups for everything from beginning ukulele lessons, Queer Black Men in the Middle or our Voting Reform team. And all of them have options to gather virtually! Join the groups that best fit your passion and the love you want to offer the world.

Liberative Learning

How do you change the world? First, you change yourself. Part of how we fulfill our commitment to God’s gospel of liberation is by training leaders with the skills you’ll need to bring freedom wherever you go. Thousands have participated in our digital courses. Will join them?

What We Believe

Middle is on a mission to reclaim and reframe Christianity—to realign our faith with Jesus’ teaching and take it back from the folks who have stolen it. We do this work joyfully, fueled by the Spirit, and strengthened by the community we create with one another.

Celebrate LOVE with Us!

Middle’s worship is a joyful, diverse celebration that gives a taste of what heaven feels like—an experience to soothe your soul and fill you with God’s liberatory fire! Every week is different, but what remains constant is how we tell the story of love through transformative art.

Do Justice

Faith comes alive when our love radiates outwards. At Middle, we’re committed to building an intersectional movement that both addresses the particular needs of different communities and unites us in common solidarity. This is God’s work, and we hope you’ll join us in it.
