the next step for mercy church
Our church’s mission is to make disciples who love God, love each other, and love our world. Living out this mission always requires bold faith, a pioneering spirit, and a willingness to humble ourselves to follow where it seems the Lord is leading us. Because the gospel changes everything, we want to reach all people in the Charlotte area with the hope of the gospel. The elders of Mercy Church feel the Lord is calling us to launch a new campus in the Northeast Charlotte area. Although Northeast Charlotte is not the only area of our city that we want to reach, we believe planting a campus in this area will be both faithful and effective for Mercy Church.

Why Northeast Charlotte?
Mercy is already in this area.
There are several community groups in this area and a strong base of members. If our people are already in this area, we can catalyze the ministry they’ve already begun with their neighbors and coworkers.
Cultural diversity is in this area.
Mercy Church is seeking multicultural unity, and Northeast Charlotte represents an opportunity for us to move toward our goal of becoming a multicultural, multigenerational church.
College Students are in this area.
College students are some of the most reachable, moldable, and sendable people. Reaching this generation is crucial because these students will shape the future church. They need to learn how to love and function in the local church.
Families are in this area.
Harrisburg, Concord, Kannapolis, and Northeast Charlotte house hundreds of thousands of families who live a Christ-less routine each week. Mercy Church can reach these families.

How will this affect Community Groups?

If you’re not in a group, we would love for you to join one here!
How will launching a new campus affect our church's operating budget?
We are currently in the budgeting season at Mercy. The elders will present the budget to our membership at our annual budget meeting near the end of 2020.
What does this mean for those who were a part of the Mercy Independence Campus?
The closing of our Independence campus creates an opportunity for members to prayerfully consider being a part of the Mercy Northeast Launch Team. For some, God may call you to be a part of this new work. For others, God may call you to consider jumping into the ministry at our Mercy Providence Road campus. We invite you to prayerfully consider what He may be calling you to!
