Online Welcome Gathering

Sunday, May 16 // Zoom

Welcome to Mercy! We’re so glad you’re here and we want to connect with you and connect you to Mercy. For those who are new to Mercy, we host an Online Welcome Gathering on the third Sunday of each month at 11am to provide an opportunity to connect with a pastor and the Mercy connections team, answer your questions and receive prayer (if desired).

Wednesday

Courageous Conversations Dialogue

Wednesday, May 19 // 6:00pm // Hybrid

As a way to engage with our theme of “Sticks & Stones” this month, you are invited to join a dialogue on courageous conversations. We have the opportunity as Jesus followers to model a different way of being that is neither a “Minnesota avoidance/minimization” style or a “righteous either/or defensiveness” style. To live in the tension is hard and takes a way of being that is not often modeled in our culture.

Jonathan Stuart will be facilitating a mix of information giving, personal reflection, and interpersonal sharing practice. Please sign up for either the in person or Zoom option for this session which is meant to encourage us and help us connect in meaningful ways around difficult discussions.

Sunday

Space is limited to 20 participants. Alternate dates will become available if max attendance is reached.
