Fellowship opportunities abound at United Church of Christ Midland. Whether it's church events like the annual Rally Day picnic, ice cream social or fellowship hour after Sunday service, members of UCC Midland find many ways to become involved in each other's lives. Other activities include Dine with Nine, where church members take turns hosting enjoying meals and fellowship. There are also lunch groups for men and women (known as the Romeos and Juliets) who select a different local restaurant each month. There is also an active church book club. There is also the opportunity to attend and volunteer the annual church fundraiser and auction.
The Board of Christian Community encourages fellowship opportunities for members of the congregation throughout the year.

Come to the Fair
April 30, 2017
It's spring and that means time for the annual fundraiser. The theme this year was, "Come to the Fair." There was an assortment of fair games, fair foods like corn dogs, elephant ears, nachos, Italian sausage, cotton candy, and popcorn. And it wouldn't be a fair without a king and queen. As always, the festivities included the popular silent and live auctions. Funds raised from the auctions goes to support the church's General Operating Fund.

The church hosted an interfaith potluck on Sunday, January 15 in the fellowship hall. This group has been meeting for a year as of January, in an effort to increase community among members of various faiths and to provide service to the larger community. Attendees had the opportunity to meet many wonderful people in an informal setting while celebrating one year of ongoing and meaningful dialogue.
