How Can We Help?!

All Church Hangout - Next Sunday (10/1)!!!

Meaningful community is hard to find in Silicon Valley, even in the church.  Our congregation is spread out all over the city. But there is one day of every week when we all commit to gather together and worship our God: Sunday. It seems strategic to take this pre-existing momentum and work with it in an attempt to develop deeper community within our body. Therefore, on occasional Sundays throughout the year we will invite the church to enjoy picnic-style afternoons together immediately following the service.

The Plan:  After service, bring or buy your lunch and join us at the tables out back for a picnic-style afternoon.

Mercy Hill Men’s Fall Bible Study!

Men of Mercy Hill!  We've got a Bible study coming for ya beginning in October.  It will start on October 7th and continue for six consecutive Saturdays, winding down the 11th of November.  It'll be led by both Paul Walton and Bob Coffey, and it will alternate with Paul sharing from 2 Peter 1 and Bob sharing from the Psalms.  It will be held at Paul Walton's house (319 Fontanelle Dr., San Jose, CA 95111), starting at 9:00am & finishing up around 10:30am or so.  Getting in God's Word together always grows men closer to him and to each other.  You won't want to miss it!

All Church Prayer - Sunday, October 1st!

Prayer is the start of everything good (Acts 1:14).  It is the death of self-reliance and the lifeline of faith.  It is the moving of our eyes outward and upward.  It is the stretch of our empty hands towards a Father rich in mercy.  As a church we prioritize this regular prayer meeting because of our deep-seated conviction that, while man can plant and water, it is only God who can cause the growth (1 Cor. 3:7).

This Sunday's prayer meeting will held in-person at 6:00pm at the Wilson Residence.  Click here for more info.

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us at
