    Connections Program

    As we look forward to the New Year, what are we doing to make our Community better? Please bring your calendar and share what you're doing with all of us.

    Since the Center is closed (because it is moving to a new location), we're holding this Connections gathering at St. John's MCC on Maywood Avenue. There is plenty of free parking available.


    Connections is a program of the LGBT Center of Raleigh that provides an opportunity for LGBTQ people of all faith backgrounds (or no faith backgrounds) and our Allies to come together and have conversation about various common concerns and ideas. The idea is to promote communication across a diverse group of people and provide safe, nonjudgmental space for people to express themselves with each other. Reconciling who we are - our sexuality and our spirituality - can be very difficult; Connections can provide a place where we are able to talk openly about such issues as well as other topics that some might consider taboo. Connections is all about building relationships - NOT religion.

    Sometimes, we will have a main speaker on a central topic, but most months, we'll just have conversations around the room with small groups and individuals.

    This month, please bring some refreshments to share with others. Come and explore new Connections in our faith community.

    Winter Weather Policy

    If we decide to cancel services or activities at St. John’s MCC, any notifications will be made on the St. John's MCC Facebook Page and will appear on the following TV channels: WRAL (Channel 5) and Spectrum News (Cable Channel 14). If possible, we will also post notifications on the St. John’s MCC Community Website. As always, even if the church decides not to cancel services, please use your own judgment on whether or not it is safe for YOU to travel.
