The Unsung Heroes.

Middletown United Methodist Church is extremely blessed to have a congregation full of talented individuals who generously give their time to help in the areas that call to them the most. Our Church Council and Committees are in charge of future casting a a vision for our ministries and goals, supervising church membership, nurturing a spiritual life in the church, establishing and approving administrative changes and program policies, planning the annual budget, evaluating stewardship opportunities for the church, and the list even goes on from there.

If you are called to serve as a Lay Leader as a Council Officer or on one of our Church Committees, please reach out to us. We are always welcome to anyone getting involved.
