MCC of New Orleans is preparing to have its 50th Anniversary Celebration on Sunday, May 23, 2021 at our 10 AM Worship Service with a reception to follow.
"Metropolitan Community Church of New Orleans to celebrate their 50th Anniversary as a church ministering to the LGBTQ+ community here in New Orleans.
Fifty years ago in May of 1971, a group of believers met for the very first time not only for a time of Worship together, but also to chart a course for the future as a Church Family. Little did they know then of all the tremendous plans God had for Metropolitan Community Church of New Orleans, yet we are here today as a testimony to the Sovereign plan of God, as well as serving as representatives of what God can do with people following God’s will.
While there have been difficulties along the way, and times of great testing by fire, plague, exile, and flood, we have seen time and time again miracles of God's provision, power, and protection! God truly is good ALL the time…even when we may not understand God’s ways.
As the 18th Pastor, Rev Lonnie Cheramie, states, "It is truly an honor to be here at this special time in the history of MCC of New Orleans as we continue to celebrate the love of God for ALL people. At the same time, I look with anticipation to even greater things in the future! For the Bible says in Jeremiah 29:11 – 'For I know the plans I have for you, declares Yahweh, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'"
MCC of New Orleans' 50th Anniversary Service will begin promptly at 10:00 AM on Sunday, May 23rd. On that day, the universal Christian church will be celebrating Pentecost Sunday – the Birth of the Church! What could be more appropriate to celebrate on that day then the 50th Anniversary of the birth of our local Church!"
