A message from our pastor.



Monday March 30, 2020

We’ve now gone through another week, another Sunday of not being together as a physical community, and we wonder what is to come not just for our church on King’s Highway in Middletown but for the more than 45,000 Christian churches of over 60 denominations, not to mention the almost 4,000 synagogues, 2100 mosques, or 450 Hindu temples, and other places of community worship. 

For many small churches, numbering less than 100, like ours in Middletown, Jesus’ statement, “Where two or three are gathered in my name, there I am in the midst of them,” is a statement too true. Our small body reflects not just us but the Church Universal, the body of those who declare their faith in God through Christ no matter how varied each of us may interpret that faith.

Forced by this pandemic to communicate by phone or the internet, we feel distanced from each other, to be sure, and we long for the day when we can again be physically together. During this time let us take comfort in the knowledge that our faith unifies us beyond our physical contact and that God is with us as we are with each other in spirit.

He has told you, O mortal, what is good;

and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice,

to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?"
