Middletown Reformed Church (MRC) is a welcoming and affirming congregation dual affiliated with the United Church of Christ and the Reformed Church in America, and we are rostered with the non-profit organization Room for All . MRC is a church where the love of God is the guiding principle for all of our ministries. We believe that God’s grace is irresistible, freely given, and available for all people. We are a church committed to social justice, living out the command to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God. We are a church on the side of love for all God’s people – providing for those who are in need, advocating for all oppressed peoples, and caring for our earth – we love because God first loved us.

This is what you will experience when you worship with us. You will immediately feel welcomed, not only by our greeters, but also by the Spirit of God that is hovering ever-present in our church and among our congregation. You will be moved by our music, at times traditional, but then, at other times, a bit more eclectic. You will be stirred by the liturgy, and you will be challenged and affirmed by the sermons. If you have young ones in your family, you will find one of the most vibrant children and youth programs in New Jersey. Finally, you will find fellowship and kindred spirits during our coffee hour. All of this to say, you will feel a sense of belonging . . . you will feel God's unconditional Love.

We look forward to welcoming you on Sunday at 10:30 AM.
