Welcome to the United Methodist Church of Middletown, NJ!
MUMC anticipates reopening the church for in-person worship on Sunday, August 16, 2020 for a 10am Worship Celebration.
Registration, facemasks, and social distancing will be required in order to ensure MUMC's compliance with state regulations.
Please note, livestreaming of our Worship Celebrations will continue. If you are unable to join us in person, please celebrate with us on Facebook!
This Sunday's Worship Celebration (Aug 9th) will include Communion - please have your bread and juice prepared before the start of Worship at 10am .

If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you. (Matthew 17.21)
Mountain moving seems impossible. However, human beings have been moving mountains for centuries. With proper planning, techniques and skills, human beings have literally moved mountains. Our Lord and Savior says that with a small amount of faith nothing is impossible for us. Single handedly because of faith we can move mountains! Thankfully we do not need a bucket full of faith, just a small amount. Grab that faith and move those mountains. (God wants to help you do it!).
 In Christ
Pastor Derrick
 P.S. Please remember we will be celebrating Communion this Sunday. Please have your bread and juice near by as worship starts.

If you miss when the video is live, no worries, you can watch the video later in the day. Just scroll through the pages news feed or click on the left side of the page ‘videos.’


Medical Masks
Fabric Masks: we still need people who can sew! A few of us from MUMC are sewing, along with about a dozen women in the area. In the weeks since starting this ministry, over 8,500 masks have been made and donated! And yet, the need far outweighs the numbers we are turning out. Please, if you sew, please join in as soon as possible. Information is on our church website, fabric can be found outside the driveway side doors, and completed masks go in the bin in the same location. Daily pick up is 4pm. The more hands, the more lives will be saved. Blessings!  
Knit One, Prayer Too
Monmouth Medical Center NICU is out of preemie hats. If you knit or crochet, please consider helping. You may make any pattern you wish, and use Google to find free patterns. Any color, size, but please, no wool, fringe, tassels, or pom poms. Hats may be left in the medical mask bin, outside the driveway side doors. Thank you!
Keyport Food Pantry
So many are experiencing great difficulties during the health emergency. The Keyport Food Pantry is really in need of food to give to those folks who are out of work and unable to feed their families. Our congregation can help. Plastic bins will be placed outside the double doors facing the DRIVEWAY where you will be able to place your donation of food. Because there are a few bins placed there…the bins for food donations will be clearly marked. The pantry is specifically asking for cereal, pasta, pasta sauce and canned vegetables. You can donate anything but they are running low on these items. You can also drop these much needed items off at a Sunday drive through. Thank you in advance…I know you will all help.
MUMC has created a fund for donations that will help anyone affected by the coronavirus. To date, we have received many generous contributions - Amen!
We are currently putting these funds to good use by providing meals to health care employees at both Riverview and Bayshore Hospitals, on a weekly basis. We have had the ability to use several of the super volunteers for the Door Step Deliveries to help facilitate this. Looking ahead, we hope to expand our ministry – please let us know if you have any suggestions. You can contact Nanci Illingworth, Denise Goudsward, or any member of the Missions Team. If you have a request that you would prefer to remain confidential, please contact Pastor Derrick.
If you would like to donate to the Covid 19 Fund, you have a few options: 1) you can log into REALM, and go to the Giving page. There will be a drop-down menu that offers a choice for where you would like your donation to be given. Just click on Covid 19 Fund. 2) you can mail your donation to MUMC at 924 Middletown-Lincroft Rd., Middletown, NJ 07748; or 3) send your donation electronically through your bank. Thank you all for your generosity!!!!
