MCC DEDICATES MISSION CHURCH, INSTALLS INTERIM PASTOR Metropolitan Community Church of Austin will celebrate a landmark event in its history Aug. 6 when the mission church dedicates its building and installs its interim pastor. Jeff Bishop, approved for licensing as UFMCC minister by the South-Central District of UFMCC at its meeting in Houston in May, has served as worship coordinator of the Austin congregation since April. Bishop will serve as interim pastor until the congregation is granted chartered church status, at which time the UFMCC bylaws will require a new issuance of a call to ministry, either to Bishop or to another MCC minister. The Rev. Don Eastman, District assistant co-ordinator and pastor of the Dallas MCC, will officiate at both ceremonies during the regular service of worship he- ginning at noon. The South-Central District includes congregations in Texas, Lousiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma and southern Missouri. Formal dedication of the building at 614 E. 6th St. is one step in the local congregat ion's development from study group to mission status. The church plans to submit its application for full charter membership in UFMCC when the national church's Board of Elders meets in Los Angeles in late August or early September. Since Bishop's arrival at UFMCC Austin, the church has undertaken major expansion of its activity to include a variety of educational and social events. The congregation has also accelerated its efforts to improve its building, which has been renovated completely in the last six months and now is air conditioned in its sanctuary and office area. MCCA worship services are conducted every Sunday at noon and 7:30 p.m. Christian education classes now in progress are "Homosexuality and the Bible," Tuesdays; "I am Somebody: a Christian Search for Identity and Self-Acceptance," Wednesdays; and "Survey of the New Testament," Thursdays. All classes meet at 7:30 p.m. MCCA social activities include a 7:30 p.m.-to-midnight Games Night on Fridays (dominoes, cards, board games, movies, refreshments) and pot luck suppers every other Saturday evening. Bishop indicates the other Saturday nights are currently open but will be filled in the near future. The Board of Directors of the Austin Church also has approved establishment of a Deacon's fund to be used for human assistance and support programs in Aust in. "MCCA is growing and seeking to expand its activities to our brothers and sisters in Austin," Bishop says. "The doors of this house of the lord are open to all. Those who never have attended or have not attended in some time are particularly invited to worship with us and to join us in our fellowship." The church also has a small bookstore with a number of items available including many publications of recent authorship concerning homosexuality and American society and homosexuality and the Bible, as well as Because He Lives, a musical album of religious songs produced by MCCR, Houston. tCXcLS... TEXAS WOMEN'S POLITICAL CAUCUS TO MEET The annual convention of the Texas Women's Political Caucus will be held in Brownsville, August 11-13.
