Myth Busting Queers & Christianity 101:
Confronting the Lies & Revealing the Rainbow Truth
Series Begins Thursday, August 5 @ 6:30PM
"The Bible clearly condemns..." "The church has always rejected..." For far too long and still far too often misinformation has been spread about the Bible and the Christian tradition in relation to LGBTQ+ persons. These falsehoods spread in the name of religion have grave consequences! Pastor Nathan will lead a 5-part series covering the basics with his own unique twist. A great primer -- or a refresher -- on an important topic for you or someone you love! All are welcome to attend.

Are You LGBTQ+ and age 55+ living in Oregon?
Participate in A Groundbreaking Survey!
The Oregon LGBTQ+ Older Adult Survey is funded by the Oregon Department of Human Services Office of Aging and People with Disabilities (APD) and is partnering with agencies and organizations serving LGBTQ+ and Two Spirit Oregonians (including MCC Portland). The goal is to gather information to enhance planning, program development, and community education and advocacy to address the service, aging and health needs that support the strengths of LGBTQ+ and Two Spirit older adults in Oregon. For more information on the survey visit the website HERE.

The project seeks your help! If your are an LGBTQ+ Oregonian 55 or older, complete -- or share with others -- the confidential and anonymous on-line questionnaire HERE.
