to Heartland Metropolitan Community Church
"A Home for All People"
The Universal Fellowship of Metropolitan Communities Churches (MCC) was
founded in 1968, one year prior to 1969's Stonewall Riots.
MCC has been at the vanguard of civil and human rights
movements and addresses the important issues of racism, sexism,
homophobia, ageism, and other forms of oppression. MCC has an
inclusive membership of over 43,000 members and adherents in 35
countries as of December 2010, with almost 250 churches worldwide.
Heartland Metropolitan Community Church began in 2003 and we
have been active in the Central Illinois area since that time. We are
glad that you found us, and hope that you will find
information here that is helpful and encouraging.
We're ecumenical - that means that our participants come from many
church backgrounds - Catholic, Protestant, Evangelical and none. We're
international - part of a fellowship of Christians that has worship
centers on every continent.
We seek to be a spiritual home for many lesbian, gay, bisexual and
transgender people, but our welcome extends to all who would share our
commitment to be an affirming and welcoming congregation. We also seek
to be a community partner in making Central Illinois a safer, more
diverse, and more tolerant place.
This website is just a snapshot of who we are. From time to time we
will update it with new information. However, we invite you to visit us
at our church, each Sunday at 10:30a.m., as well as 5:30pm on the first
and third Sundays of the month. We hope you'll soon realize that
Heartland MCC is a great and friendly place to be - and not your
