Have you ever started a new program or ministry, knowing it would require a season of extra attention, nurture and investment if it were to succeed for the long-term? According to Rev. Dr. Nancy Wilson, that’s exactly where we are today with MCC’s Networks!

That’s why October’s Fellowship Sunday Offering is dedicated to resourcing MCC’s Networks by providing training opportunities for Network leaders and teams, enhancing communications between Networks and local congregations, and increasing the support and resourcing of local churches.

“The focus of this year’s Fellowship Sunday Offering Campaign is on MCC’s Networks,” said Rev. Dr. Wilson, “but the long-term beneficiaries are the health and growth of our local congregations.”

Has your church signed up to participate in MCC’s 45th anniversary observance by receiving a special, designated Fellowship Sunday Offering on 6 October 2013, or on another Sunday in October?

Signing up literally takes less than 60 seconds! Simply write to Rev. Dr. Wilson at FellowshipSunday@MCCchurch.net and let her know your church will participate. “I would be thrilled if your church would sign up this week to become a 2013 MCC Pacesetter Church by committing to receive a second offering in support of MCC’s Networks on Fellowship Sunday, 6 October 2013, or on another Sunday in October. I hope to hear from your church this week!”

MCC Moderator’s
2013 Fellowship Sunday Prayer


1968 – 2013

On the Occasion of the

45th Anniversary of the Founding

of Metropolitan Community Churches


God of Liberating Hope:
     We thank you for 45 years of the miracle
          of Metropolitan Community Churches.

Today, October 6th, 
     is truly a feast day for us,
          as we remember the blessings of our past,
               as we open ourselves to renewal,
                    as we boldly embrace the future .

Jesus Christ, in whom our faith is rooted:
     How could we have imagined that You
          would use our humble beginnings
                to change lives and change history
                     in so many places around the world?

We thank you for being Emmanuel,
      -- God with us!  --
               for all these decades.

Today we lift up Founders’ MCC, where it all began;
     we lift up the newest MCC’s in many places around the world;
          we lift up churches that are seeking a new pastor; 
               churches that are re-examining their vision and mission; 
                    churches that are persevering through tough times; 
                         churches on the brink of a new era of ministry.

We lift up those who have not found MCC, 
     but who are starting to find us
          on websites and from newsfeeds,
               through press stories and in social media,
                    and by the public witness of local MCC congregations
                         and their ministries of compassion and justice.

We lift up those who have not found MCC, 
     but who are waiting...
          to connect with a community of faith;
     who are longing...
          to discover hope-filled spirituality;
     who are ready...
           to celebrate MCC
                in villages and towns, in cities
                     and countries, around our world.

God of our Past and of our Future:
     Grace us, we pray,
          to love relentlessly,
               to do justice faithfully,
                    to live hopefully
                         In a world that needs You,
                              and that needs us to BE MCC.

These things we pray
     in Your Many Names.
                                     Amen!
