welcome to mercykids!

MercyKids exists to equip and encourage parents as they fulfill their calling to raise disciples who love God, love each other, and love our world. Our desire is to build relationships with families and it is our hope that kids see the beauty of the Gospel and choose to follow Christ with their whole lives!

Currently, our MercyKids environments are in a phased reopening process.

As of January 2022, the following programming options will be available at our two locations

  • Providence Road 9 am  + 11 am Service – programming for children ages 6 months – 5th grade
  • Northeast 9 am Service – programming for children ages 6 months – 5th grade

This programming includes a lesson, worship, games, and free play. There are a limited number of spaces available in each of these classrooms/spaces. To register for MercyKids, simply complete the RSVP form at the top of the page. In order to complete your registration, parents and caregivers must read the updated policies and procedures and indicate on the registration form that you agree to abide by the safety policies and procedures as outlined.

When you arrive on Sunday morning, please visit the check-in table for nametags and directions! We look forward to seeing you!

what if I want my child to attend service with me?

Children are always welcomed and their attendance in our service is celebrated! We have coloring pages and Growing in Worship activity pages at our MercyKids table to help your child engage with the main service. If you choose to engage online, make sure to check out the Growing in Worship sheet for kids. This “fill-in-the-blank” style worksheet helps your kids listen and learn from our sermon content each week.

Partnering with parents to make disciples

Choose two | serve with us this summer!

This summer, we will be offering a chance for parents to sign up and serve for two Sundays throughout the summer. This will allow our faithful MercyKids team members, who show up each week to serve in this ministry, to take a mini-break during the summer months! Ready to choose two? Click on your campus below!

Parent Commissioning

Parent Commissioning is Mercy Church’s first opportunity to partner with parents as you build a strong foundation for your children – teaching them to love God, love each other, and love our world.

During Parent Commissioning, we come together to celebrate the fact that you want to raise your child up in a God-centered home! On the day of this celebration, we will bring you up on stage and pray for you as a church family, commissioning you as parents and committing to come alongside you as a church family as you raise your child to know and love Jesus!

Please note, Parent Commissioning is for member families. If you are interested in becoming a covenant member of Mercy Church, we invite you to attend the next Starting Point.

tools for discipleship

Each month we choose a discipleship tool (activity, podcast, book, etc.) aimed to support you in making disciples in your home. Stop by the MercyKids table to pick up this month’s resource or click one of the links below! If you have any questions about one of these resources, you can contact our MercyKids team at kids@mercycharlotte.com.
