I have gone to both the 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. worship services, and they are both fantastic in their own right. The 11 o'clock is definitely more traditional - with scripture, mention of Jesus and God, and by all means Christian (which MCC does not deny). The 7 o'clock, by contrast, is a rollicking thumpin' musical feast; still Christian in nature, but I go away (having been raised Methodist) feeling like I went to what I imagine a Christian rock concert would be like, not like I just went to church. I definitely would not classify either as 'fundamentalist' in feeling. I am very political and committed to social justice and a student of liberation theology, and I feel like the various clergy share in those values. All are welcome - at the communion table as well as in the sanctuary itself - but perhaps those uncomfortable with God, Jesus, and scripture would not want to come to this table. For those who are queer and Christian (any denomination), however, there is much to be found here. There are also Buddhist meditation services and silent meditations. If I were queer and Jewish, I would run to Sha'ar Zahev. My wife and I go every chance we get.

I have not attended MCCSF for a number of years but it is my understanding that MCC in SF does not hold to the basic recognizable tenets, or creeds, of the Christian Faith and is more akin to Multifaith or as one of their former pastors stated, "post-Christian". This works for some people. There are about 500 hundred members according to their web site. Check it out for yourself. But, regardless of how the denomination was founded, MCC in SF is quite different. MCCSF is not a fundamentalist Church.

Don't let that gay-friendliness fool you. The MCC is an evangelical church. If that's your bag, more power to you, but if you're looking for a progressive church that is also gay friendly, look elsewhere. Begun by an evangelical minister defrocked because he was gay, the MCC is rather disconcertingly willing to fall in line with other fundamentalist churches on everything except LGBT rights.
