TOday's Announcements

Here are a few critical announcements to keep in mind:

Host International Students for Thanksgiving!

There are thousands of international students in the south bay, with the majority coming from India and China. Many of them do not know Christ yet and will never meet any Christians. Mercy Hill would like to offer international students the opportunity to meet and get to know Christians. Thanksgiving is coming up and we would like to encourage you to invite a couple or more international students to your family gathering.

If you are willing to have two or more students come join you for your Thanksgiving meal, please contact Becky Durstenfeld know at

Mercy Hill Youth Hangout - Next Week!

All Mercy Hill Youth (6th thru 12th grade) are invited to join us after service next Sunday, November 14th at 12:30pm.  We'll have time for fellowship, prayer, and getting in God's Word.  And we even plan to provide some pizza!  Weather permitting, we'll meet at the picnic tables in the pavilion around the back of Allen at Steinbeck Elementary.  See ya there! 

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

Mercy Hill Kids - In-Person Today!

On the first and third Sundays of each month, Mercy Hill Kids will have in-person instruction for Preschool and Elementary children (2.5 years thru 5th grade). Kids can be checked in to their classes before the start of service and can continue there until the service ends. Our Nursery is not currently staffed but we do have a Mother's Room adjacent to the Sanctuary where parents can care for their littlest ones.

Note 1: As the weather turns colder (and wetter), we will be moving Mercy Hill Kids indoors. From now on we will have indoor classes for both Preschool and Elementary. We will require masks for all students and volunteers as well as temperature checks during check-in. We will have enhanced cleaning before and after class. During good weather, we will encourage as much time outdoors as possible.

Note 2: We will NOT have the online zoom class on these first and third Sundays.

For more information, please contact Christina Lugo at

Home Groups

Home Groups are the heartbeat of our church.  They are the place where our values of Faith, Community, and Mission gain traction in the everyday.  Our hope is to have "everyone in one"!

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!  Every Sunday we have something for your kids, either in-person or online.  You can check our church calendar to see what's happening on a particular date.  We'd love to have you join us!

Have a Wonderful Week!
