From the Pastor

What an exciting time to be alive and to be a part of MCC! The moderator of our denomination, Rev. Elder Nancy Wilson, read scripture of the pre-inauguaral prayer service with President Barak Obama at the White House. LGBT equality continue to be mentioned as a priority of the current administration. Our denomination has undertaken a new advertising campaign, "Be MCC," and has provided our local churches with new resources to strut our stuff!

My vision is to make MCC as well known for being SPIRITUALLY PROGRESSIVE as it is becoming well known as radically inclusive of all people, not just LGBT folks. What do I mean by being spiritually progressive?

1. Being a community of love, trust and appreciation. Where all are valued, people deal with one another directly in love, and those who serve are recognized and appreciated (see "The Nail" story below, and know that YOU do matter!).
2. A community that is driven by nurturing people on their spiritual journeys, not judging them. At MCC QC we say, "You and YOUR spiritual journey are always welcome here!"
3. A community that refuses to be about religious rules and power and control. One that refuses to use guilt and shame as motivational tools.
4. A community that seeks to live into the values taught by Jesus in the Beatitudes (Matthew 5:1-12)
5. A seeking community that offers lively Christian worship but which respects all faiths and that welcomes and encourages spiritual questions.

That's a good start!
