General Conference 2019: Celebrate! | Hilton Orlando | Monday, 01. July 2019

Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Metropolitan Community Churches in Orlando, Florida, USA!
In 1968, 12 people gathered in Rev. Troy Perry's living room to celebrate a risen Christ who includes all at His table, most especially the LGBTQ community. 
General Conference 2019 will bring together MCC’ers from around the globe to worship and celebrate God’s all-inclusive love. Come, taste, and experience all that MCC is and is becoming. 
We use this time together to conduct our denominational business and provide educational opportunities through workshops, day-long institutes, and plenaries. If it is a spiritual connection you are seeking, we also provide Bible studies and numerous opportunities to worship together as a global community. All are welcome to this gathering of ***** Christians. 
To kick-off our celebration, we will feature a Celebration Gala/Ball you won't want to miss. So, plan to arrive on Sunday afternoon by 3pm! 
You might notice that our end time on Friday is earlier than some of our previous conferences. Closing worship on Friday morning will feature our next Moderator. Immediately after worship, we will have buses outside ready to go to Disney to celebrate our future. So, the traditional afternoon break will be on Friday. Plan to stay through Saturday to take advantage of our excellent conference location!
