YOU ARE ALWAYS WELCOMED HERE
In the middle of the 18th century German Reformed and Lutheran residents in MIddletown began to meet for worship west of the present town. Since that point our church has been a thriving, integral part of the Valley's spiritual and social life. We are now a congregation of nearly 500 members, some with roots back to the earliest settlers and others who have moved here in the last year.
In the heart of Middletown, MD, we are located directly across from the Middletown Fire Hall on South Church Street, where Routes 17 and Alternate 40 intersect. Click here to get detailed driving instructions from your address.
WHAT DO WE BELIEVE?
We believe that each person is unique and valuable. It is the will of God that every person belong to a family of faith where they have a strong sense of being valued and loved. We believe God is still speaking and our task and our joy is to listen and then respond. For more information about the United Church of Christ, visit www.ucc.org

At Christ Reformed we celebrate the fullness of the Body of Christ, the Church, as realized through the participation of all members of our human family. Our hope is to grow into being such a family of faith, reflecting the greatest virtues of unity and utilizing the unique gifts of all of God’s children, regardless of cognitive, developmental, intellectual, emotional, physical, or communicative abilities. Our newest ministry, Spirit Stars is designed to serve youth 5 years and up with special needs and to provide families impacted by disabilities with additional support and fellowship.
The Good News of Jesus Christ, the love of the Father, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit are intended for all and it is our desire to be able to share these blessings with all who would join with us in worship, education, mission, and fellowship. We are not a perfect community, but we have faith that through God’s love, earnest prayer, and leaps of faith, we can work together to ensure that our congregation is an enriching and hospitable faith home that meets individual ability needs.
Would you be part of our vision? If you or someone you care for has a disability or special need and would like to be part of our community of faith, help us to make that happen. Journey with us as we strive to fashion Christ Reformed Church into an
ever more authentic image of God’s Kingdom.
