Tool Time at Ten
Cindy Norton begins leading a brand new Bible Study this Sunday, April 30th called "The Attitudes of Being: New Growth from Old Stories (and some new ones)."
It's The Beatitudes (Matthew 5:3–12 / Luke 6:20–22) meet The Parables with a new perspective. You are invited to meet in Friendship Hall every Sunday morning at 10:00 am.
The seventh annual Out! Raleigh festival will take place on May 6, 2017. This inclusive and action packed event is family friendly, with activities for all ages. Out! Raleigh is an important way to raise the necessary funds to support the LGBT Center of Raleigh and all of its 20+ amazing community programs. Last year, more than 51,000 people poured into Raleigh’s City Plaza to celebrate the LGBT community and our friends and families.
Running from 11:00am to 6:00pm, the event offers live entertainment, local vendors and artists, great food, and a KidsZone! There is no admission fee.
In the last seven years, the event has become an integral part of Raleigh’s downtown culture, promoting diversity awareness as well as a sense of inclusiveness for the LGBT community and its allies, both inside and outside of the Triangle. Each year has been more successful than the last, and this year will be no exception.
St. John's MCC will have a booth at Out! Raleigh 2017. To help with the Booth, please contact Mark Godette (MarkG@StJohnsMCC.org). We look forward to seeing you there!
