Out! Raleigh 2017

Visit Our Booth at Out! RaleighThe 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 ([email protected]). We look forward to seeing you there!

Freed from Guilt ... Freed from Shame

Tuesday Night Bible Study

Freed from Guilt ... Freed from Shame
Overcoming Bible Abuse about Homosexuality
a Bible Study for ALL of God's Rainbow People

newly revised to include verses directed toward the Transgender Experience

Make plans now to attend this important, in-depth Bible study for ALL of God's Rainbow people that will begin on the Tuesday night after Out! Raleigh (Tuesday, May 9th) and go through the end of June.

Jim Manchester has revised this epic, transforming Bible study to include the verses that some would use to abuse Transgender people.

  • Find out why the "Sodom and Gomorrah" story is so important to us.
  • Learn what an "Abomination" really is and how it might apply to you personally.
  • Discover why the Levites were so concerned about what they called "genital mutilation."
  • Find out what was going on in Asian Minor and the around the Mediterranean that Paul found so troubling.
  • Meet our biblical LGBTQI family members and learn their stories. There are quite a few that we've overlooked.
  • Pick out YOUR best responses for when someone tries to beat you up with the Bible.

Chances are, the answers to these issues are NOT what you might think. They are certainly not what the Bible abusers say they are. No one should have to put up with Bible abuse, but you can arm yourself with truth that comes directly from God's Word. If you are interested in spreading the whole Gospel of Jesus Christ to those around you, this groundbreaking Bible study for Adults is for you.

Tuesday nights in May and June 2017 starting at 6:30 pm.
Come early and bring your dinner to enjoy before the study begins.
