Starting Point

Move from connected to committed

 Starting PoinT RSVP

Register here for the next Starting Point on Sep. 28th. We look forward to having you there! Dinner will begin at 7pm on Friday evening at Levine (1050 Devore Lane).

What is Starting Point?

Starting Point is a Friday or Saturday evening experience,  designed to help you move from simply connected to meaningfully committed at Mercy Church. This is a great next step for you if you’d like to connect to a ministry team, get baptized, become a covenant member, or even if you just have questions about what it means to be a follower of Jesus! Especially for those who have attended Mercy’s weekend services and are ready to learn more about who we are, Starting Point is the best way to get to know the history and heartbeat of our church.

 Upcoming Starting Point Dates

Oct. 27: 5-7:30pm (7200 Providence Rd.)

Dec. 1: 5-7:30pm (7200 Providence Rd.)


What to Expect

On Friday or Saturday evening you’ll join our pastors, staff, and leaders for dinner to learn who we are, what we believe, and how you can begin committing to the mission God has given us. We’ll discuss our mission, vision, and values; lay out our beliefs about the Bible, baptism, and the church; and share with you how you can practically engage in the mission God has given us. There will also be an opportunity at the end of the evening to ask any questions you may have concerning Mercy Church. Then, on Sunday morning, you’ll have the opportunity to experience serving with us. We’ll spend this portion of our time together getting to see first-hand the function of individual ministry teams, where you’ll hear more about the vision behind each team’s contribution to the mission and vision of Mercy Church.


We value church membership at Mercy Church, and believe that membership is a biblical way to grow together in the midst of a committed church family. While Starting Point Weekend is a prerequisite for becoming a Covenant Member of Mercy Church, Starting Point Weekend attendees are not required to become Covenant Members. So whether you’re interested in covenant membership or if you’re just looking for an opportunity to have your questions answered, we’d love for you to join us for our next Starting Point Weekend!
