TOday's Announcements

Here are a few critical announcements to keep in mind: 

Family Sunday

Though Mercy Hill Kids is now back up and running in-person each week, on occasion, we will hold Family Sundays where children sit in the service with their parents.  We know this can be a bit challenging for parents, but we also recognize that it is a very good thing for kids to participate with the larger church family in worship. To help, we will provide coloring sheets and pre-packaged crayons for you to make use of. The Mother's Room adjacent to the Sanctuary is a space families can utilize as well if necessary.

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to Christina Lugo at .

Good Friday - Special Study!

For Good Friday this year, while we don't have a special service, we have put together a special study for all of our Home Groups to make use of if they desire.  If you are not a part of a Home Group, this would be a great week to jump in!  Find a group to join here

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

Easter Sunday!

Please join us for a special service on Easter Sunday as we celebrate the morning our Savior broke free from the grave!  Light snacks and refreshments will follow the service as well as an Easter egg hunt for your kids.  Whether you're just curious about Christianity or you've been walking with Jesus for a long time, we'd love to see you there!

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


Mercy Hill Kids would love your help with the Easter Egg Hunt after Easter service. If you'd like to volunteer, please sign up here.

Ever Wondered? - Sunday, April 24!

We are looking to launch a new perennial sermon series entitled Ever Wondered?  We plan to preach a new sermon for this series about once every quarter.  On these particular Sundays, we'll tackle tough questions that those skeptical or curious about Christianity might be asking—questions like:

Where can I find lasting happiness?
Why should I trust the Bible?
Aren’t Christians all hypocrites?
Don’t science and faith contradict each other?
If God is so good, why is there so much pain in the world?

Sound exciting?  We hope so! 

The first sermon in this series is scheduled for the Sunday following Easter (April 24).  On this Sunday, we'll try to answer the question: Who Was the Jesus of History, Really?  Please do prayerfully consider whom God would have you invite!

Mercy Hill Women's Bible Study - With Us in the Wilderness!

Drawing from the Book of Numbers, this study by Lauren Chandler follows the Israelites, newly freed from the shackles of Egypt, as they wander in the wilderness toward the promised land.  It is the story of God's presence among them, His beloved people.  We'll begin the seven-week study the week of April 4th and end the week of May 16th. 

Ladies may join one of two small groups: Mondays from 8:00-9:30pm on Zoom, or Tuesdays from 7:00-8:30pm in Kathy Wilson's backyard at 6181 Blossom Avenue in San Jose.  A joint meeting of both groups will follow on the afternoon of Saturday, May 21st. 

Books are available at Amazon.com for $19.99.  Click here to purchase.
