Due to COVID-19, our worship services look a little different than normal these days. You are welcome to join us for in-person worship or virtually through Zoom. You can find more information on our current safety guidelines here.
you are welcome here
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”.
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. We sing, pray, read Scripture, and share communion.
Feel free to come a few minutes early and stay after the service for 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 love kids and their unexpected noises and movements! If you have kids with you, that’s great! Sing, pray, and listen with them; they’ll learn how to worship by worshiping with you. You’ll probably learn a thing or two as well.
We are temporarily taking a break from children’s services during our Sunday worship services (nursery, in-person Sunday school, use of toys and books, use of rooms, etc.) until further notice. If you are interested in getting your children involved virtually, please contact Daniel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
what should I wear?
Wear whatever feels comfortable for you. We are an informal church and accept people as they are. You’ll see everything from dresses to 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 table and invite everyone who desires to taste God’s mercy to come. 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.
For safety reasons, we are currently providing single serve pre-packaged communion.
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.
