LGBTQ Community

An Open and Affirming Congregation

National City Christian Church is an open and affirming congregation of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). We welcome persons of all gender expressions and sexual orientations to Christ’s communion and to the full life and leadership of the church.

Are you looking for a church home or a congregation where you can find affirmation as an LGBTQ person? Join us for worship on Sundays at 8:30 a.m. (Gospel) or 11:00 a.m. (Traditional). If you have questions, send an email to Rev. Michael McMahon  or phone him at (202) 797-0103.

LGBTQ Community

The LGBTQ Community is a social and service group within the congregation, particularly committed to furthering National City’s mission to help us all to “journey toward a fuller commitment to Christ by being an inclusive church family which fully embraces in its life and ministries people of every race, gender, age, culture, economic circumstance, sexual/gender orientation, family configuration, physical or mental condition, and all other distinctions which are the rich tapestry of God’s creation.” For more information about the LGBTQ Fellowship at National City Christian Church, contact Rev. Michael McMahon at 202-797-0103.

LGBTQ Ecumenical Bible Study
Second Wednesdays, 7:00 p.m.

We will be taking a break from our Bible study sessions during the months of July and August. Please join us on Wednesday, September 13, from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. in the Music Suite for the second in a series of sessions on LGBTQ people and the Bible. What does the Bible teach that affects LGBTQ people and their relationship with God, the church, and the world? Even if you missed the first session, you are most welcome to join us in exploring this important topic. Bring your questions and an open mind!
