Peninsula MCC (originally known as That New Church) began worshipping together on Easter Sunday of 2005. With an average attendance of 45 and growing, we are a friendly and diverse congregation made up primarily of LGBT and queer people. (We are about 10% straight.)
Our Sunday services feature a lot of singing with a blend of traditional and Worship and Praise music, a time of community prayer, a message, and communion. You don't need to be a member or meet any other criteria to receive a piece of bread, dipped in grape juice, and a short individual prayer of blessing. It's God's table, not ours.
Some of the things we have discovered so far? We find more grace in the search for understanding than we do in dogmatic certainty. We encourage questioning and learning from one another and from our lives.
We envision a world where God's love continues to expand, and not limit, the participation of a widening circle of spiritually grounded people. We believe that one of God's names—perhaps the most important one—is Love.
We invite you to learn more about us and then to join us some Sunday for worship and fellowship.
Rev. Terri J. Echelbarger, Senior Pastor
