Q & A about MCC
About Metropolitan Community Church (MCC)?
MCC churches are located in over 40 countries on six continents and are made up of congregants from many different walks of life. Because of this, we have a fellowship of churches that celebrates diversity both within their local congregations and among the global community.
MCC isa church that believes in the priesthood of all believers. That means, that when you walk into 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.
What about my family? Is there a place for my children?
