Foundations (F-260) Bible Reading Plan

A 260-day Bible reading plan that highlights foundational passages of Scripture every disciple should know. Read 1 to 2 chapters daily for 5 days each week, with an allowance for weekends off. If you’re interested in furthering your Bible reading, the  Foundations book provides commentary and questions to help you understand and navigate the daily reading.

Reconstructing Faith Conference

Mercy Church hosted guest speaker Barnabas Piper on November 5, 2022, to teach about faith reconstruction. Throughout three sessions, we learned how to ask questions, explore doubt, and cultivate tools to think about our faith. If you find yourself going through this process, or you know people who are, check out the recordings from the weekend and learn how to ask questions without losing your faith in Jesus, the scriptures, and the church.

Considering a role in full-time ministry?

It doesn’t get more practical than how you spend your 9 to 5 every day! Mercy’s Residency program is for those who believe God is calling them into full-time ministry or church planting, as well as those who believe they will be involved in some form of Christian vocational work in the future.
