Community  groups

Community Groups are the best way at Midtown to get connected and experience the heart of our church. There is usually a shared meal, discussion over God's Word, and prayer. Please take the time to contact one of the leaders and check out a group!

"A Real Emotional life" 


“No-one was ever less prepared for such an experience than Jesus. As the eternal Word he had always been with God (Jn 1:1). As the incarnate Son, the Father had always been with him (Jn. 16:32). They had gone up from Bethlehem to Calvary, like Abraham and Isaac, 'together' (Gn: 22:6, 8). But now, in the hour of his greatest need, God is not there. When he most needs encouragement, there is no voice to cry, 'This is my beloved Son.' When he most needs reassurance, there is no-one to say, 'I am well pleased.' No grace was extended to him, no favor shown, no comfort administered, no concession made. God was present only as displeased, expressing that displeasure with overwhelming force in all the circumstances of Calvary. Every detail in a drama which walked a fine line between chaos and liturgy declared, 'This is what God thinks of you and of the sin you bear!' He was cursed (Gal. 3:13), because he became 'the greatest thief, murderer, adulterer, robber, desecrator, blasphemer, etc., there has ever been anywhere in the world'.
