Welcome to the Middletown Church of the Nazarene. Thank you for taking the time to visit us online. Please feel free to browse around and see what is going on here at the Middletown Church of the Nazarene. If you would like to join us for Sunday morning worship, we have Sunday School at 9:00 AM, Prayer and Hospitality at 10:00 AM and Morning Worship at 10:15 AM.

As we gather together, we encourage you to REACH UP to God in worship and prayer. As we fellowship together, we encourage you to REACH IN to grow alongside the body of Christ. While you experience the love of God and receive love from others, we encourage you to REACH OUT to a lost world with the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Local Local Compassionate Ministries Initiatives

Individuals from our church have completed a course called "Helping without Hurting," in which we learned principles for effective ministry with the less fortunate in our community. These principles have led us to identify five new areas priorities for ministry we believe will enable our church to reach beyond the walls of our church:

  • Mentoring/discipleship relationships
  • Summer Children's Meals program
  • Home-bound Caring Ministry
  • Mom's Ministry
  • Life Skills/Job Assistance Ministries

Each of these ministries intend to develop meaningful relationships by which the Lord transforms and lifts people out of spiritual, emotional, financial, and relationship poverty. We invite our congregation to prayerfully consider partnering with us in one or more of these ministries. Learn more by clicking below.

Vision 100—Generosity Going Viral!

For the next 100 days (March 5—June 18), we ask you to prayerfully considering participating in viral generosity. Our vision for viral generosity:

  • To discover the blessing that comes from being generous to God's work above our current level of giving.
  • To experience a miracle of abundance when God’s people are unified in giving together for a common purpose for something bigger than themselves.
  • To liberate our church from financial bondage so we can aggressively and creatively fulfill our mission.

We believe in "Praying First" and we believe God loves to hear the prayers of His people!!
