Sa Open Table MCC, hindi hadlang ang inyong sexuality o ang inyong gender identity para mahalin ang Diyos at ang kapwa, at patuloy maglingkod sa kapwa ninyong sugatan at nasasaktan. Maraming challenges sa isang progresibo at LGBT+ affirming na simbahan na katulad namin. May kaakibat na hirap, ngunit may kaakibat rin na ligaya at galak ang pagpapastor at paglilingkod sa kapwa nating LGBTQIA+.
Dito, yayakapin kayong buong buo, at hindi ninyo kailangang itakwil ang inyong mga tradisyon. As a matter of fact, we encourage you to offer your traditions at the table of Jesus Christ, together with other Christian traditions in our church. Together, we can make a difference in each other’s lives and faith, and reach out to more of our queer sisters, brothers, and siblings in the faith. Kung kayo ay ipinagtutulakan nang palabas sa inyong simbahan, may church community na handa kayong tanggapin, dito sa Open Table MCC.
Here, you can love God, and love your neighbor, by loving the fullness of who you are, and by doing so, you may experience God in a new and different way.
Come, taste, and see. Come home to Metropolitan Community Church.
If you are a Methodist pastor or seminarian, or if you are a lay member of UMC, and you are an LGBTQI+ or an ally – you may reach out to Rev. Joseph San Jose through email:
