Come As You Are


We believe all are welcome in the family of God, and we practice a ministry of inclusion and love. We are committed to providing an open and safe community and equipping ourselves to do the work all of us are called by God to do in this world.


We believe that lives are transformed when people are freed from the oppressive religious environment of our day, so we provide instead a message of liberation designed to help everyone experience true life through God.   


We believe Christian social action can make a difference in our world. And we know that by being real people practicing real worship and real faith, each of us can play our part in making this world a better place for everyone.


 We invite you to

"Come As You Are

to MCCBR."

Everyone is welcome!


As Pentecost season continues, we look for the Spirit to guide us, comfort us, excite us!  Not only is the Spirit alive IN us, the Spirit works THROUGH us! One of the best ways to see the Spirit at work is to be more involved in our Faith Community and the Baton Rouge Rainbow Community, as well. Take a look at some of the many opportunities to do just that!

James Hartman is our gap preacher

James' term as our gap pastor begins September 1, for 4 months and is renewable if we need him.  He will be with us until we find the permanent pastor God has for us. We will post his office schedule soon. He will bring our message on September 2nd.  Let's make him feel welcome and help him any way we can.

Dear Saints,

We are looking forward to having James Hartman as our Gap Pastor starting September 1st. Now that we have our Gap Pastor in place, we can start focusing on our search for a permanent pastor. Continue to look in our E-News for updates. 
What a powerful message we heard from Bishop Dr. Joyce Turner-Keller   this past Sunday.  We are looking forward to seeing you this Saturday at the immersion baptism, potluck, pool party. We will be hearing again from one of our own, Leslie Palmer this coming Sunday. We know we will be in for a Spirit filled sermon.
God bless,
Rhonda Waldrop, Vice Moderator BOD
Metropolitan Community Church of Baton Rouge      

Remember, join us this Sunday at 11 a.m. at Freedom Center at 7747 Tom Drive for a worship celebration of the blessings we do have!
