Seattle's first LGBT church to install new senior pastor this weekend
The Reverend Brian Hutchison to lead Seattle MCC into a bright future

Emerald City Metropolitan Community Church Seattle, a member congregation of the international Metropolitan Community Churches denomination (www.MCCChurch.org), was the first church formed by and for the LGBT community in the Pacific Northwest. In its 43-year history, it has been on the forefront of LGBT rights, HIV/AIDS work, service to the poor, and much more.

On Sunday, September 20th at 11:00 a.m., ECMCCS will install a new Senior Pastor, The Reverend Brian Hutchison, M.Div. The celebratory service will occur in the chapel of University Temple UMC, where the congregation of ECMCCS worships weekly. A denominational representative, Rev. Elder Tony Freeman will perform the ceremony. A reception will follow in the church's parlor.

Reverend Hutchison comes to Seattle from New Haven, CT where he served as Interim Pastor for the MCC of New Haven, CT. Prior to that he served as Staff Pastor at Sunshine Cathedral MCC in Fort Lauderdale, FL; Pastor of New Covenant MCC, Laurel, MD; and Pastoral Intern at MCC San Francisco, CA. He holds a Master of Divinity degree from Pacific School of Religion (Berkeley, CA). He currently also serves as the Program Officer for the MCC denomination's Young Adult Advisory Council.

Reverend Hutchison writes, 'I am very excited for this next chapter in the life of Emerald City MCC! I am humbled and honored to be elected as this wonderful church's Senior Pastor. Our shared passion for care of those in need, social justice, and spiritual growth makes for a great partnership. I know that the Divine will work through us to do amazing things in the years to come. We will continue to proclaim God's Unconditional Love for ALL through our demonstration of Radical Hospitality and Inclusivity.'

Emerald City MCCS meets every Sunday at 11:00 a.m. in the Chapel at University Methodist Temple, 1415 NE 43rd St. For more information, call (206) 325-2421 or email info@MCCSeattle.org
