Mercyview's leaders continue to seek how to respond to our current circumstances. Please watch the video below to see how we are processing caring for both our body and community. If we can serve you in any way, please reach out to us at: info@mercyview.com.

Summary 

Mercyview's leaders continue to seek how to respond in our current circumstances. Two questions have surfaced as we dialog to best frame our approach moving forward. 

Question 1: Internally, how can we best serve you and help you serve one another?

We have focused our initial energies in making sure you are able to stay connected and engage in community, though apart from one another. Here are the ways we want to encourage you to do that:

Website

  • We are regularly updating our website to keep you informed. You can find our response to the impact of the coronavirus on our community with the menu item "Covid-19 Response" on the homepage of mercyview.com. There are currently four pages: Current Updates, FAQ's, Support Resources, and Recommended Resources.

Live stream

Missional communities

  • MC leadership is the “frontline” for knowing what is going on with their people and to let leaders to be in the loop.

D-groups

  • Be connected, be creative.
  • If you need to be connected to a D-Group, contact us at info@mercyview.com

Question 2: Externally, how can we serve our community as a church and as individuals?

If we can serve you in any way in the weeks to come, let us know. We’d be honored to do so. You can reach us at: info@mercyview.com.

Summary 

Mercyview’s response

  • Over the weekend, ongoing and updated information came in from the White House, the CDC and Mayor Bynum 
  • We are suspending all MV-related gatherings - worship gatherings, MC’s, etc. - for the next 8 weeks
  • This significant decision has been made: out of love for our neighbors, both in our church and outside; for those who are in a risk group; for the reputation of the gospel 
  • Livestream will continue for the next 8 weeks at mercyview.com/live
  • Future events cancelled: Film + Theology series first installment

  • Giving: If you belong to a local church community and are able at this time, please continue to give faithfully in the coming weeks/months to move the mission of your church forward. If you are able, prayerfully consider giving above and beyond.

For you personally

  • 1 Peter 5:7: Casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.
