Metropolitan Community Church Seattle

Metropolitan Community Church Seattle, the oldest LGBT congregation in the Pacific Northwest founded by and for members of the Queer Community and our straight allies, is on a bold mission to transform hearts, lives and history. We are part of a movement that faithfully proclaims God's inclusive love for all people and proudly bears witness to the holy integration of spirituality and sexuality. Just as Jesus did, we are called to:

  • Do justice, show kindness, and live humbly with God (Micah 6:8)
  • Explore life's questions with open hearts and minds.
  • Raise our voices in sacred defiance against religious, political, or systematic exclusion.
  • Reach out to those with no hope.
  • Lift up a new generation of remarkable spiritual activists.
  • Combine our efforts and strengths with other congregations to realize Christ's vision of the new community of God.
