MCC Illiana had a great time at Michigan City Pride last weekend. With rainbows and pride flags of every color, we joined with our community for a wonderful day to celebrate our diversity and unity. At our booth our church handed out rainbow bracelets, buttons, stickers and information about our church. It was a full day and we had a record number of volunteers at our table - thanks to everyone who came to help. Our church stood out once again with our welcoming and affirming message!
