GENERAL CONFERENCE REGISTRATION OPEN!    
General Conference will culminate our 50th Anniversary year so we are excited to announce the theme for this global gathering, our worldwide jubillee is: Celebrate!
Mark your calendar and register today as we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Metropolitan Community Churches at General Conference in Orlando, Florida, USA 1-5 July 2019.
This conference will kick-off with an event on Sunday night to remember our history, so plan to come early. The week will feature more celebrations of our history and our future as we gather to worship, tell stories, dream, plan, and learn together. You can expect excellent worship, meaningful workshops, fun entertainment, and challenging plenaries.
We are making some exciting changes to the program in honor of our 50th Anniversary that include: a day-long plenary focused on being a local and global human rights church, worship that honors our international diversity, and even a half-day off to go to area theme parks. Look for more information on all these things as we get closer to General Conference.

Sonny and Perley 
Florida Schedule

I saw this couple perform a few years ago at the Port Charlotte Library and enjoyed the show. Perley learned Portuguese and sings in it fluently, although English is her native language. There is no charge for the performances and you should enjoy the show.
