Young Adults

You are a change agent. You looking for a place where others are gathered who, like Gandhi, seek to “be the change you want to see in this world.”

Leadership Development

You yearn for warm community, stunning worship, spiritual practices, and a way to walk the talk. And you need a community that is unafraid to embrace a God that sees every person as divine: gay, bi, trans, lesbian, straight, Black, Brown, Asian, and Latinx.

Our young adults meet each month, and will welcome you into our loving, inter-generational community that loves God and the world through acts of justice. Mark your calendar and let us know you’ll be with us.

Special young adult leadership trainings are offered by our senior minister, Jacqui Lewis, and her spouse, John Janka. You’ll learn more about yourself, and how to influence others in a movement for love and justice.

Email youngadults@middlechurch.org if you’d like to be contacted about a future training.

Community Engagement

The best way to grow and develop is through robust interaction with a world that needs our voices and solidarity. We learn together and march together. The diversity of our Middle Church community helps ensure that our advocacy is deeply intersectional, always enacted in pursuit of universal liberation. The friends and connections we make broaden our reach, and build new relationships that can last a lifetime.

Communion & Connection

Our young adults, which we define as 20-and-30-somethings, meet twice a month with Middle staff Rev. Darrell and Elise. This group gathers to discuss life and theology every 2nd Thursday and 4th Sunday, and will welcome you into our loving, inter-generational community that loves God and the world through acts of justice. Mark your calendar and let us know you’ll be with us. In the meantime, we encourage you to join our mailing list and Facebook page to be kept abreast of upcoming offerings.

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.
