TOday's Announcements

Here are a few critical announcements to keep in mind:

Associate Pastor Candidate - Joey Wang: Preaching Today!

We are so blessed to have Joey and his family with us at Mercy Hill. We have been in dialogue with him for quite some time now about coming on as Associate Pastor alongside Nick. In this role he will help us further develop and realize our mission as a church in this beautiful but broken city. But we want you to get to know him before we move any further. That is why he's actually going to be preaching today!  If you want to read a brief bio from him, go here.

Sunday Prayer Walk

We will be gathering after service next Sunday, October 24th at 1:00pm at 1:00pm to do a prayer walk in the local neighborhood! So grab lunch after the service, and consider joining us to pray for our neighboring community, as we hope to have the opportunity to share the gospel with those who are open and ready to engage. We'll have a brief time before the prayer walk to discuss what to pray for, so we invite anyone regardless of experience to join and learn.

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

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, every Sunday we have something for your kids, either in-person or online.  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!
