Welcome to Metropolitan Community Churches. MCC is a global Christian church of loving, affirming and welcoming communities of faith. While Transforming Ourselves as We Transform the World, MCC confronts oppression and injustice in our local communities, our nation, and around the world. Because we are a people of the Good News, we are working with our Divine Creator to Build Up Hope among our siblings worldwide. We are a people of hope. We are a people of faith. We welcome you on this lifelong journey and mission!
Our churches are located in over 40 countries on 6 continents and are made up of congregants from many different walks of life. Because of this, we have a fellowship of churches that celebrate diversity both within their local congregations and among our global community.
Every church is influenced by the congregation members involved. The people sitting near you during worship services may come from a different religious tradition than you do. Still, we all worship together and celebrate the diversity God creates in us.
As a global church, we share the foundational calling (mission) for a specific and intentional outreach to/with homosexual, bisexual, and transgender people. Our churches actively minister in their communities to and with LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) people.
We are a church that believes in the priesthood of all believers. That means that when you walk into the church and become an MCC member, you become a messenger that God loves all of God’s children and celebrates our created sexualities, our diversities and our individual uniqueness. All persons have value and worth, and are uniquely gifted to share the Good News with others. It takes the whole body, clergy and laity, to live out the Good News!
MCC Sacred Journey (MCCSJ) is an affiliated congregation with Metropolitan Community Churches. MCCSJ is a welcoming faith community offering weekly worship in a Christian context; we embrace your faith traditions and where you are on your spiritual journey. Our congregation is made of people from all over Western NC and the Upstate SC with diverse religious traditions and denominational backgrounds!
Have you ever wanted to sleep-in on Sunday mornings or go out for brunch yet authenticity worship God in a dynamic faith community? Well, now you can! Enjoy your weekend, then begin your week with worship on Sunday evenings at 5:30 pm. We meet in the FELIX BUILDING of 1st Congregational Church UCC located at 1735 5th Avenue W (corner of 5th & White Pine) in Hendersonville.
