Welcome!

Good morning Mercy Hill and happy Sunday to you!  If you're new with us, we just wanted to extend a special welcome to you.  Feel free to fill out a Connection Card to get more info or prayer.  We're glad to have you with us!

  • If you are attending in-person, and you haven't already registered, please do so here.  In order to comply with the county's guidelines, we need to do our best to keep record of who joined us each Sunday.  Thanks for your understanding!
  • If you're tuning in for the Live Stream, we'd encourage everyone to please consider taking a moment to put a comment in the chat box there.  Let us know who you are and maybe where you're tuning in from.  Say hi.  We miss you!  And as we get into the message, feel free to share other Scriptures that come to mind, prayer requests that you have, questions that you'd like answered, etc.  It would be great to interact even in this limited format.

Call to Response


1.  Sing:

The Goodness of God

I love You Lord
Oh Your mercy never fails me
All my days
I’ve been held in Your hands
From the moment that I wake up
Until I lay my head
I will sing of the goodness of God

All my life You have been faithful
All my life You have been so, so good
With every breath that I am able
I will sing of the goodness of God

I love Your voice
You have led me through the fire
In darkest nights
You are close like no other
I’ve known You as a father
I’ve known You as a friend
I have lived in the goodness of God

Your goodness is running after, it’s running after me
Your goodness is running after, it’s running after me
With my life laid down, I’m surrendered now,
I give You everything
Your goodness is running after, it’s running after me


2.  Pray:

If you need prayer in any way, please either: (1) fill out a Connection Card; or (3) post your request to our Mercy Hill Community Facebook Group.  We’d love to be lifting you up and caring for you in this time!

3.  Give:

Mercy Hill Kids

While difficult, this pandemic does create a wonderful chance for parents to step towards their God-given call as chief disciplers of their kids.  We know this may feel overwhelming and that is why we want to help!  Parents of Mercy Hill children should have already received an email from the Director of Mercy Hill Kids, Christina Lugo, regarding ways you can utilize the Gospel Project curriculum at home.  This information has also been included on our blog here.  Beyond this, each Sunday, we are also looking to host an online worship gathering for our kids.  You can check here for more details.  We'd love to have you join us!

If you have any questions or need help in any way, don't hesitate to reach out to Christina at    

Have a Wonderful Week!

Call to Worship

Great Are You Lord

You give life, You are love
You bring light to the darkness
You give hope, You restore
Every heart that is broken
Great are You, Lord

It's Your breath in our lungs
So we pour out our praise, we pour out our praise
It's Your breath in our lungs
So we pour out our praise to You only

All the earth will shout Your praise
Our hearts will cry, these bones will sing
Great are You, Lord

Title:
Treasuring our Faith
Text: Ephesians 2:1-10
Preacher: Tolu Odulesi
Manuscript: If you appreciate following along with written material, you can find today's manuscript here.

Call to Response


1.  Sing:

All I Have Is Christ 

I once was lost in darkest night Yet thought I knew the way.
The sin that promised joy and life Had led me to the grave.
I had no hope that You would own A rebel to Your will.
And if You had not loved me first I would refuse You still.

But as I ran my hell-bound race Indifferent to the cost
You looked upon my helpless state And led me to the cross.
And I beheld God’s love displayed You suffered in my place
You bore the wrath reserved for me Now all I know is grace.

Hal-le - lu - jah! All I have is Christ
Hal-le - lu - jah! Jesus is my life
Hal-le - lu - jah! All I have is Christ
Hal-le - lu - jah! Jesus is my life

Now, Lord, I would be Yours alone And live so all might see
The strength to follow Your commands Could never come from me.
Oh Father, use my ransomed life In any way You choose.
And let my song forever be my only boast is You.


2.  Pray:

If you need prayer in any way, please either: (1) fill out a Connection Card; or (3) post your request to our Mercy Hill Community Facebook Group.  We’d love to be lifting you up and caring for you in this time!

3.  Give:

If you’d like to give an offering this morning, you can give online here.  Thanks for your generosity!

4.  Reflect:

  • After reading Eph 2:1-10, what comes to mind? How does it make you feel? What realizations hit you anew?
  • In light of Eph 2:1-3, what or who is truly directing the course of my life? Am I being guided by my pursuit of security, stability and wanting control? Or am I learning to increasingly live in total submission to Christ?
  • What is the role of works in Salvation? Is it true that while we are not saved by good works, we are definitely saved for good works?
  • What do you understand by “All of life is repentance?” How often does repentance ( a turning to God as opposed to sin) feature in my relationships with he Most High and others
  • What way of life (daily, weekly, monthly routines, etc.) will you be developing to help increase your intimacy with God?

Call to Worship

Holy, Holy, Holy

Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning our song shall rise to Thee;
Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty!
God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!

Holy, holy, holy! All the saints adore Thee,
Casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;
Cherubim and seraphim falling down before Thee,
Who wert and art and evermore shalt be.

Holy, holy, holy! Though the darkness hide Thee,
Though the eye of sinful man Thy glory may not see,
Only Thou art holy; there is none beside Thee,
Perfect in pow'r, in love, and purity.

Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
All thy works shall praise Thy name, in earth, and sky, and sea;
Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty!
God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!

Call to Response


1.  Sing:

What a Beautiful Name

You were the Word at the beginning
One With God the Lord Most High
Your hidden glory in creation
Now revealed in You Our Christ

What a beautiful Name it is, What a beautiful Name it is
The Name of Jesus Christ my King
What a beautiful Name it is, Nothing compares to this
What a beautiful Name it is, The Name of Jesus

You didn't want heaven without us
So Jesus You brought heaven Down
My sin was great, Your love was greater
What could separate us now

What a wonderful Name it is, What a wonderful Name it is
The Name of Jesus Christ my King
What a wonderful Name it is, Nothing compares to this
What a wonderful Name it is, The Name of Jesus
What a wonderful Name it is, The Name of Jesus

Death could not hold you, The veil tore before You
You silenced the boast of sin and grave
The heavens are roaring, the praise of Your glory
For you are raised to life again

You have no rival, You have no Equal
Now and forever Our God reigns
Yours is the Kingdom, Yours is the glory
Yours is the Name above all names

What a powerful Name it is, What a powerful Name it is
The Name of Jesus Christ my King
What a powerful Name it is, Nothing can stand against
What a powerful Name it is, The Name of Jesus
What a powerful Name it is, The Name of Jesus
