Blessings and greetings from the MCCBR Board of Directors. We are meeting in person. Some of the steps we are taking to keep our friends and families safe include:
Social Distancing: Communion is both served by a server or self served with pre-packaged individual service wafers and grape juice, We are not passing the offering plate, but offer attendees the option to drop their tithes and gifts in the collection plate at the doors exiting the sanctuary, or donating online.
Masks: Masks are strongly recommended, but not required.
Hand sanitizer: Hand sanitizer is available in each bathroom and in the front lobby and back exit of the building.
Anyone who is not feeling well is strongly encouraged to stay home until you are well, or you have tested negative for Covid-19.
Welcome to MCC of Baton Rouge
Founded on Sunday, December 4, 1983, we are proud to be celebrating 35 years in the Baton Rouge and South Louisiana communities. Our continued outreach would not be possible without the many blessings from God and the support of our wonderful members, friends, and online community. Also, many businesses have helped to make our community feel welcomed and supported in a part of the world with a reputation for being less than friendly to the LGBT+ community. To learn more about MCCBR and the Metropolitan Community Church denomination, visit the About MCCBR tab at the top of this page.
Where and When We Gather
We meet every Sunday morning at 11:00 a.m. (central time) at 7747 Tom Drive (near Airline Hwy.) Our worship services are open to everyone, as a safe space for all to gather. As with MCC’s around the world, every Sunday we offer an open communion. This means that you do not have to be a member of our church or any MCC or any church in order to partake of the Holy Communion sacraments. During each Sunday service, we have a children’s message, which ties in with the message for the congregation.
MCCBR Outreach Ministries
MCC Baton Rouge has several outreach ministries throughout the year:
“Makin’ Groceries” is our food collection ministry for those who are in need of food for themselves and their families. Our collections are stored in our grocery room. Food can be passed out to those in need, by contacting any board member or team leader.
Also, every Christmas we collect a variety of supplies for the residents of Baton Rouge Heritage House skilled nursing home. Each year we deliver more than 100 Christmas bags filled with activity books, personal hygiene items, socks and a variety of other requested items; enough for each guest to receive their own personal gift bag.
