We will be empowered by the Holy Spirit to share our gifts; become a growing spiritual force for compassion, justice, and equality; and partner with other communities and organizations.
~MCCDC Aspirations, 2018-2022
This Sunday MCCDC is pleased to welcome back Rev. Cedric Harmon, Executive Director of Many Voices. Rev. Cedric works directly with Black religious leaders and other people of faith to engage diverse topics at the intersection of religion, faith and human sexuality. He will open our week of Spiritual Renewal with a focus on our aspiration of “Becoming a Spiritual Force”.
Rev. Cedric is a seasoned activist, preacher and spiritual force. The scripture lesson is from Psalm 1 (Click Here To Read) and Mark 9: 30-37 (Click Here To Read). Those that delight in the Lord and do not rush headlong after the wicked, will be steady and firm like trees planted by the life giving and refreshing waters. MCCDC can be such a place with a firm foundation, planted by the life giving waters of God’s love.
We are looking forward to welcoming you on Sunday at 9 or 11. Join us in person or on live stream.

Update on MCCDC’s Strategic Plan
The MCC Statement of Faith affirms that “Metropolitan Community Churches is one chapter in the story of the Church, the Body of Christ… We are people on a journey… We are part of an ongoing conversation on matters of belief and faith, shaped by scripture and the historic creeds, building on those who have come before us. Our chapter begins when God says to us: ‘Come, taste, and see.'”
Through his parables, Jesus teaches that we are stewards of our life and talents. In this time and place, each of us receives different gifts of the Spirit to be used for the greater good. In 1 Corinthians 12: 4-7, St. Paul reminds us:
“Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of services, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who activates all of them in everyone. To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.”
Today, MCCDC must be about discovering our renewed aspirations – engaging our community in “our songs of imagining” who we can become, why we exist as a church, and what difference we can make in our challenging and often disheartening world.
We believe that the Holy Spirit will inspire many different voices to help MCCDC build upon our strengths. As we work to complete the MCCDC Strategic Plan over these next weeks, we ask for your prayerful discernment of how you personally can be part of shaping our way forward as a church.
