You have never been to a place like Middle Church, a loving, multiracial, multicultural, inclusive community in which you really are welcome just as you are as you come through the door. We believe that all of God’s people are awesomely and wonderfully made, and that God created each of us with a gift that can be healing to the world. No matter how you look, no matter whom you love, no matter what you have done with your life, we believe that together we have the Power to give hope to the despairing, to feed the hungry, to advocate for those who are on the margins, to work so that everyone has enough. At Middle Church, you can have your soul nurtured by inspiring worship rich with the arts; you can learn to lead with the ethics of social justice; you can volunteer to care for those in need; you can spread love through social networking and justice works.
Our welcoming, artistic, inclusive and bold vision is ambitious, and ALL of us are needed in the work of healing. We not only pray, we act. We understand that economic justice, racial/ethnic justice and gender/LGBTI justice are inextricably linked, and that injustice anywhere is injustice everywhere. At our core, we believe that empowered by God’s Spirit, we are the ones we have been waiting for to make a change, and we are inviting you to join us. “We Are the Ones” was written as a call to worship, to faith, to action, and to justice. When you buy the song, you increase Middle Church’s ability to make the dream of a just society a reality. You fuel our social justice programs, and you become a partner in the healing of the world.
You and I are the ones we’ve been waiting for, you and I thought this was somebody else’s war, you and I are the ones—the ones we’ve been waiting for!
