The following description is from the website: Salem Evangelical Lutheran Church is a welcoming community of faith in southwest Houston. We welcome everyone, regardless of gender, race, disability, sexual orientation or gender identity. We love Jesus, and we believe Jesus invites us to be people who love, serve and give. At this time due to Covid, the services will be livestreamed via the church's facebook page, Salem Houston.
Description from the website Since its founding in 1968, Metropolitan Community Churches have been at the vanguard of civil and human rights movements as an international advocate for vulnerable people in places where religious orthodoxy, sexism, transphobia and homophobia can result in violence and death. MCC has been on the forefront in the struggle towards marriage equality in the US and other countries worldwide and continues to be a powerful voice in the LGBTQ equality movement. MCC’s ministry reaches over 43,000 members in over 250 churches in 22 countries worldwide. Metropolitan Community Churches are on a bold mission to transform hearts, lives, and history. We are a movement that faithfully proclaims God’s inclusive love for all people and proudly bears witness to the holy integration of spirituality and sexuality. Due to Covid19, the services are currently being livestreamed on the church's Facebook page, "Resurrection Metropolitan Community Church."
