“I always like a good song: puts me in a good mood.” ~Waris Ahluwalia
This Sunday, worship at MCCDC will embody Psalm 100:1-2: “Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come into God’s presence with singing.”
Both services will be 80% music, our voices lifting with our spirits. The 9 am service featuring “Daniel & Friends” will be an old-fashioned hymn sing where you can call-out your favorites. The 11 am service will feature the L.O.V.E. Gospel Choir directed by Min. Diedre Mouton-Gray.
Come ready to sing . . . and come hungry. The Board of Directors, Trustees and Staff are serving Pancakes & More following both services. This is our way of saying “thank you” for your love and support for the MCCDC Community through your time, talents, and financial support. We also want to provide an opportunity for people to deepen friendships and make new friends.
Sunday is also Father’s Day. We look forward to honoring all fathers with special recognition and the presentation of a gift for all fathers that will bring memories of this day for years to come.
Following the Worship in Song movements of the services, I will offer a brief reflection from Psalm 100: “Enter God’s gates with thanksgiving and the courts with praise! Give thanks to God! Bless God’s Name. For God is good; God’s steadfast love endures forever and God’s faithfulness to all generations” (4-5).
See you Sunday for song, fathers, pancakes and more!

OUR HEROES 2018
During the month of June, 2018, 40 pieces of one of the most
historical collections on the history of HIV/AIDS in Washington DC
is on display at Metropolitan Community Church Washington DC.
The complete collection of the Our Heroes exhibit includes 300
black and white portrait photographs of individuals, places, events
and organizations that have made an impact in the war against
AIDS in Washington, DC over the past 32 years (1981-2015).
Their portrait photography and stories will help archive the history of AIDS and its impact in Washington, DCl. Their portrait photograph and stories will also share with the world our journey and heroism in the fight against HIV and AIDS in your life and the lives of others. In 2013 the complete collection was given to the Martin Luther King Memorial Library as part of Washington, DC history in the fight against HIV/AIDS and remains one of the
largest collections at the Martin Luther King Memorial Library Washington DC. We extend our thanks to MCCDC member Wallace Corbett who is the Lead Organizer of the Our Heroes Project.
