Opening Hymn / Himno
We Are the Church Alive
by Jack St. John and David Pelletier
From many places
we gather here. This
is a high point of our
week. We see our
friends. We make
new friends. And we
spend time with The
Friend -- the loving
Christ who meets us
where we are, as we
are. In this Sanctuary
we worship, and
through worship the
courage within us
is kindled to inspire
courageous living
beyond this place.
We are the Church Alive,
Christ's presence on this earth;
We give God's Spirit body
in the act of our new birth.
As yielded open channels
for God's descending dove,
We shout and sing, with joy we bring
God's all inclusive love.
We are the Church Alive,
Our faith has set us free;
No more enslaved by guilt and shame
we live our liberty!
We follow Christ's example
and freedom now proclaim,
Destroying myths of doubt and fear
in Jesus' mighty name.
We are the Church Alive,
All praise to God on high.
Creator, Savior, Comforter, we laud and magnify.
Your name, Almighty God of love;
Pray, give us life that we
May be your Church, the Church Alive,
for all eternity.

For Everyone Born
For everyone born, a place at the table,
for everyone born, clean water and bread,
A shelter, a space, a safe place for growing,
For everyone born, a star overhead,
And God will delight
When we are creators of justice and joy,
Compassion and peace
Yes, God will delight
When we are creators of justice,
Justice and joy!
"Stonewall," the site
of a series of riots in
late June-early July
1969 that resulted
from a police raid
on a Greenwich
Village gay bar, has
become synonymous
over the years with
gay resistance to
the emblematic event
in modern lesbian
and gay history, the
first anniversary of
the Stonewall riots
birthed marches
of solidarity and
celebration which
came to be known
as "Gay Pride."
Today this liberation
movement is spread
across the globe as
millions proclaim
the right to freedom,
dignity, and full
humanity of all
peoples. As those
who claim the life and
teachings of Jesus,
who came bearing
reconciling love for
all, we celebrate our
freedom, dignity, and
full humanity
with “Pride!”

Contemporary Reading / Lectura Contemporánea
Sharri McGlauthing
A Reading from Leadership Author, Jim Collins
People are not risk-averse, they’re ambiguity-averse. What really scares
people is not the risk, it's the blank canvas. It’s the ambiguity of carving
our own path, trying to do something truly distinctive that is inherently
unnerving to many of us. If you go and do something on your own, what
do you do tomorrow? There is no set timeline, there's no sense of what's
going to come next or how you're going to do it or what things are going to
look like the next month or the month after. It's very, very ambiguous.It's
opaque. It's the blank canvas. I've come to the conclusion that it's not that
people are risk-averse, they are averse to ambiguity.
ne: In these Human words, God's voice is heard.
All: Amen.

Ruth 2:1-10
Now Naomi’s deceased husband had a relative in Bethlehem, an
honorable, wealthy man named Boaz. And Ruth the Moabite said to Naomi,
‘Let me go out into the field and pick up whatever grain is left behind the
harvesters, someone in whose sight I may find favour.’ She said to her, ‘Go,
my daughter.’ Ruth left and went into the fields to pick up the gleanings,
the grain that had been left behind by the harvesters. And so it was that the
portion of the field she was in belonged to Boaz.
Just then Boaz happened to arrive from Bethlehem, and he greeted the
harvesters, ‘The Lord be with you.’ They answered, ‘The Lord bless you.’ Then
seeing Ruth, Boaz spoke to the young man in charge of the harvesters, ‘To
whom does this young woman belong?’ The servant answered, ‘She is the
Moabite who came back with Naomi. She came and asked my permission
to pick up the grain our harvesters leave behind. She has been on her feet
from early this morning until now, without resting even for a moment.’
Then Boaz said to Ruth, ‘Now listen, my daughter, do not go and glean
in any other field. Stay with the young women and follow along behind the
harvesters. I have warned the young men not to touch you. If you are thirsty,
go and get a drink from the water jars my young men have filled for the
Overwhelmed, Ruth bowed down before Boaz, saying, “I am just a
foreigner and I have found favour in your eyes. Why have you noticed me
and treated me as if I’m one of your favorites?”
ne: This is the Word of God for the People of God.
All: Thanks be to God.

A Future to be Proud Of
In worship, Rev.
Dr. Michael, Rev.
Vickey, and Rev. Troy
will share the story
of these “sheroes”
making their way in
the world. This short,
powerful book has a
lot to teach us about
love, power, actions,
and creating a future
with hope.
As we gather, break
bread, and tell stories
of hope through prayer,
song and ritual in
the practice we call
"communion," we bear
witness that "Life is
stronger than death.
People can change with
God’s help. And God is
worthy of our thanks and
praise." All are welcome
at the table: you do not
need to be a member
of this or any church to
gather as God's children
at the table of Life.
A brief blessing is
offered with bread and
unfermented juice,
available to all. Glutenfree bread is offered at
the far right; Spanish
blessing offered at the
far left.
Please honor this time of
sacred community with
singing, quiet meditation
or prayer that we might
each receive the spiritual
nourishment we seek ...
Al reunirnos, partir el
pan, y contar historias
de esperanza a través de
la oración, el canto y el
ritual en la práctica que
llamamos "comunión",
damos testimonio de
que "la vida es más
fuerte que la muerte.
Las personas pueden
cambiar con la ayuda de
Dios. Y Dios es digno de
nuestro agradecimiento
y alabanza. "Todos están
invitados a la mesa:
no es necesario ser
miembro de esta iglesia
o cualquier reunir como
hijos de Dios en la mesa

Worship Services
Resurrection MCC is proud to offer a variety in our worship services. Our two Sunday

diverse religious traditions each week.
A Special Welcome to First-Time Families!
Our nursery staff would love to meet you and your infants & children aged one month
through three years! The nursery is located to the right of the Sanctuary entrance and is
open during both the 9 & 11 am services.
Children and youth aged 4 - 17 years are invited to join our Youth Ministries Program during
the 11 am service in the Activities Building (located across the breezeway from our main
parking lot). Sign-in begins at 10:45 am. All children must be registered and signed-in to

About Us…
Resurrection MCC is a Christian church that follows God's call to justice for all people. We
build on a rich history of social justice for, and on behalf of, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender,
and queer people. 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. Because of our
faith we are called to: do justice, show kindness, and live humbly with God (Micah 6:8);
explore life's questions with open hearts and minds; raise our voices in sacred defiance
against exclusion, whether religious, political or systemic; reach out to those with no hope;
equip new generations of remarkable, far-reaching spiritual activists.
The Mission of Resurrection MCC is to demonstrate God's unconditional love
to all people through Christ-like action.
The Vision of Resurrection MCC is to ATTRACT people into a relationship with God through radical INCLUSION into God's family, transform them to Christ-like MATURITY, and MOBILIZE them for their life purpose.
Joel Palomares
At Resurrection MCC, every member and friend is a minister of the church. We envision
a Christian community that values diversity and is as diverse and all-encompassing
as creation. Through salvation, service, study, and tithing, each member and friend
will live and grow in faith and be spiritually fed. We embrace four core values:

Core Values
Love is our greatest moral value. Inclusion is a primary focus of our ministry. We believe
that all people, as they are and where they are, should be welcomed at God’s table.
Our deep desire is to offer a safe and open community for people to worship, learn,
share, and grow in their faith. We are committed to equipping ourselves and each other
to do the work that God has called us to do in the world.
Spiritual Transformation
A message of liberation guides our ministry. We believe that when people are invited to
experience God through the life and ministry of Christ, lives are transformed.
We are committed to uplifting all people and standing with those who suffer under the
weight of oppressive systems. We are guided by our commitment to global human rights.

down from the Supreme Court or the Fifth Circuit
Court on the issue of marriage equality.
We hope you will join us on campus that day at 5:00
pm as we celebrate decades of MCC advocacy that
has brought us to this moment. In fact, Rev. Troy Perry
performed the first same-sex marriage in the U.S. in
December, 1968, just two months after founding the
It is possible that the Harris County Clerk's Office will
begin issuing marriage licenses on that day and waive
the typical 72-hour waiting period. If that is the case, we
will be hosting a mass same-sex marriage ceremony
THAT DAY at 5:00 pm. If you are interested in getting
married if it becomes legal (or are considering it), it is
important that you email [email protected]
org with your names and cell phone numbers so that
we may notify you of the critical and timely details as
soon as we know of a decision. It will be very important
that you have these details in order to participate.
Couples are not required to be a member of Resurrection

share this invitation widely with everyone you know
