Our Ministries

We create space where we can grow closer to God, closer to each other and in self-awareness. Our lives are our ministry, and we seek to create a community that recognizes and nurtures the Divine in all of us and all we do.
MCCDC is a part of the Universal Fellowship of Metropolitan Community Churches (UFMCC), a Christian movement that was started by the Rev. Elder Troy Perry in Los Angeles, California in 1968, preceding the Stonewall Riots by a year. MCCDC and UFMCC from our founding have been focused on bringing the transformative power of God’s spirit to all people.
UFMCC’s Statement of Faith … This is the simple declaration of what UFMCC believes, as stated in our By-Laws, and accepted by our General Conference: “Christianity is the revelation of God in Jesus Christ and is the religion set forth in the scriptures. Jesus Christ is foretold in the Old Testament, presented in the New Testament, and proclaimed by the Christian Church in every age and in every land.” Founded in the interest of offering a church home to all who confess and believe, Metropolitan Community Churches moves in the mainstream of Christianity. Our faith is based upon the principles outlined in the historic creeds: Apostles and Nicene.
