Responding to Fundamentalism (especially about LGBTQ+ issues)
RESCHEDULED to a future Wednesday at 7:00 PM Eastern TBA
Location: Zoom

Let’s talk about how to respond to people who say homosexuality is a sin and who may condemn those who say they are gay or even gay and Christian. What’s the best way to respond? Should you argue scripture? Turn the other cheek? What’s helpful and not helpful? Come to this practical session for some tools and practice. This session will use the same links as the Unclobber These Passages class (otherwise known as Homosexuality and the Bible).

Help Needed for Study on LGBT+ Needs When Aging

Are you a member of the East Tennessee LGBT+ community? Are you fifty years or older? If so, your help is needed for a University of Tennessee research study.

PhD candidate Joseph Winberry is doing research on what needs LGBT+ people have as they age, what barriers they expect to encounter, and what organizations that serve older people can do to help them.

An interview of about 90 minutes can be scheduled in-person or on Zoom. Participants will be compensated with a $25 gift card. Contact  Joseph at This email address is being protected from spambots.

A Community of Faith

MCC Knoxville is a Christian Church serving the gay male, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and straight communities of Knoxville and East Tennessee

We come together from a rich variety of religious experiences and denominational backgrounds, seeking to:

Celebrate God manifested in every single person 

Model Christ and share God’s immutable love

Be God’s hands, feet, and voice sharing the story of Love

We offer our experience and our love -- we share our stories and our journeys -- to encourage and uplift the transgendered, bisexual, gay and lesbian communities of Knoxville and the entire East Tennessee area.  We welcome all to join us, regardless of denomination or background.



Join Us!

We invite you to attend any of our functions.  Come as you are.  Sunday worship services are at 11 a.m.  You may reach us during office hours by phone - (865) 531-2539, by e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., or through the other methods listed on our Contact Us page.

Communal memory takes shape when we share our stories. In those stories is our longing and yearning for peace, for love, for acceptance, for freedom, equality and justice. In those yearnings is a search for the truth of Spirit.

If you are looking for a spiritual home, come visit us here at Metropolitan Community Church at Knoxville and listen to the voice of the Holy speak to you through the voices of diversity, community, social justice and prayer. We welcome people of many beliefs and backgrounds into the holy space of worship, and pray that you will find justice and peace wherever Spirit leads you.
