During Parent Commissioning, we come together to celebrate the fact that you want to raise your child up in a God-centered home!

Women’s Bible Study | Sep 26
The purpose of our women’s bible studies is to walk through a book of the bible together, training women with biblical tools that lead to transformation. We want to increase biblical knowledge within a deep community to gain greater affection for Jesus. Join us this Fall as we study Romans 8 using a study by Trillia Newbell. Groups will meet at various times and locations. Click here for more information.
Starting Point | Oct 3
Starting Point regularly takes place the first Sunday of each month and is a great first step to connect with the life and family of Mercy Church. It is a 30-min informational session that will resource you with the basics of who we are as a church, how we seek to follow Jesus in our daily lives, as well as give you information about how to get involved with serving and community. Our time will conclude with a short Q&A. Reserve your spot at our next Starting Point here!
Membership Class | Oct 17
Redeeming Sex Weekend | Oct 22-23
Over this weekend, we will discuss what it means to redeem faithful Christian sexuality. In our day, there are many approaches to sex within the church. We want to offer a biblical and practical approach to sex, sexual integrity, purity, and intimacy. This weekend is for everyone! Whether you are single, married, in college, same-sex-attracted, or widowed we invite you to join us. Learn more here!
Baptisms | Last Sunday of the Month
Baptism is an outward expression of the inward reality that you have been buried with Christ and raised to walk in the new life he gives you. Being baptized shows others that you’ve decided to follow Jesus, and allows them to celebrate this decision with you. If you feel that the Lord is calling you to this step of obedience, we encourage you to sign up here.
New Classes Coming Soon!
We offer quarterly classes and forums to provide practical training for gospel living. Past Equip topics include How to Share the Gospel, How to Read the Bible, Lunch & Learn, God & Politics, and more! See which classes are coming soon and review resources from classes that have already happened here!
