No matter who you are, where you come from, or the place you are at in life’s journey, you are welcome at Mercy Commons Covenant Church. We are a community of people “on the way” – not a group who pretends we have arrived.
We have a parking lot that is accessible from Jay Place as well as Indianola Ave S.
Our building is wheelchair accessible with an elevator through the door closest to the parking lot.
Join us on Sunday mornings at 10 a.m.
Whether you’re searching for a new church home, have been away from church for a while, or you are not even sure how you feel about God, we invite you to join us on Sunday morning for our worship gathering.
Our worship service includes worship through music – songs both old and new – teaching from the Bible, prayer, the celebration of communion, and other elements that help point us to Christ.
We have free coffee available before and after our worship service each Sunday. Feel free to come a few minutes early for a cup and stay after the service for refreshments and the chance to get to know people. This is a great time to meet the people who make up Mercy Commons Covenant Church and find answers to questions that you might have. God is doing something here. Come and see.
what about my children?
We provide a nursery for ages 0-2, and Children’s Sunday School for pre-school and grade school age kids. You can be confident that your children will have a safe, fun environment to learn and develop great relationships with other children.
Your children are invited to worship with us and then join a Sunday School class with other kids their age after the music time or stay in the service. The nursery is available for the full service time, and there is also a room adjacent to the sanctuary for those who want to sit with their baby but still be a part of the service.
Mercy Commons’ Children’s Ministry Mission: Equipping our children to know Jesus, become like Him, and enjoy a lifelong relationship with God.
what should I wear?
Wear whatever feels comfortable for you. We are an informal church and accept people as they are. There is no need to dress to try and be someone that you’re not. You’ll see everything from coats and ties to blue jeans and t-shirts at Mercy Commons Covenant Church.
what denomination is mercy commons covenant church?
Mercy Commons Covenant is affiliated with the Evangelical Covenant Church. The Evangelical Covenant Church is a denomination of more than 800 churches in the United States and Canada. It was founded by Swedish immigrants in 1885 as a voluntary covenant of churches committed to working together to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. Currently we are one of the most ethnically diverse denominations in the United States.
can I take communion?
We have an “open” communion table at Mercy Commons Covenant. That is to say that you need not be a member of this church or any church to take communion when offered in our worship services. You must, however, claim Jesus as your Savior and intend to follow him as Lord.
join the conversation
At Mercy Commons Covenant Church, we have a tradition that the pastor doesn’t get the last word. Each Sunday our community engages in a short conversation following that days sermon. It’s an opportunity to ask questions, share insights, tell stories, disagree with, encourage and challenge one another. We’d love for you to join the conversation.
what does mercy commons covenant church believe?
When new members join a Covenant church, they are asked two questions about belief: “Do you confess Jesus Christ as your Savior and promise to follow him as Lord?” and “Do you accept the Holy Scriptures, the Old and New Testaments, as the Word of God and the only perfect rule for faith, doctrine, and conduct?” They are then asked if they intend to live as faithful followers of Christ and members of the church and denomination. That’s all. That is enough.
But on another level, of course, the answer is a good deal more complex. While the Covenant Church does not require adherence to any written creed, we take our theology and history very seriously.
As St. Augustine said, “In essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; in all things, love.” This is the spirit that Mercy Commons Covenant Church seeks to live in.
Our essential beliefs are summed up in our Covenant Affirmations:
- We affirm the centrality of the word of God.
- We affirm the necessity of the new birth.
- We affirm a commitment to the whole mission of the church.
- We affirm the church as a fellowship of believers.
- We affirm a conscious dependence on the Holy Spirit.
- We affirm the reality of freedom in Christ.
