Internship Opportunity

Mercy Hill believes that healthy Christians are those disciples who are actively "making disciples" of others. On a church level, we believe churches "plant churches." One way we pursue this is by providing opportunities for young leaders to get hands-on experience in the context of a local church that's mission-minded, Gospel-centered, and biblical.

We are hoping to have three interns this yaer and have called the program our Pastoral Internship Program. It has both an academic and personal/pastoral focus. To learn more about it, and to apply, you can download the application here.

Mercy Conference Seminars and Notes

A couple of months ago, Mercy Hill sent a couple of men to Maryland to attend the PCA's national mercy ministry conference. It was a great time of learning, relationship building, and inspiration for how we can continue to live out the implications of the Gospel in practial ways in our own congregation and in our communities around south Jersey.

If you'd like to download and listen to some of the speakers, you can find all the mercy ministry conference sessions online here.

We are hosting the New Jersey Presbytery

We are excited to host the New Jersey Presbytery's quarterly meeting this upcoming Saturday, May 17, 2014. The meeting begins at 9am and lasts through lunch. If there is business to be completed by the presbytery following lunch, it will be carried on as needed.

The presbytery meeting begins with a worship service at 9:00am sharp. Pastor Phil Henry will be preaching a version of his sermon from this past Sunday on Acts 20:17-38, St. Paul's farewell address to the Ephesian elders. Members and regular attenders of Mercy Hill are encouraged to attend.

Friday evening before presbytery we are taking some time together, and with other pastors and elders (and wives) to have a round of bowling at the Deptford Bowling alley; map here. Register & pay with Eventbrite here; cost is $15 per person. More information about the event can be found here, at our church's City.

We also need help with serving lunch to the men of presbytery. If you're available to help with this ministry of hospitality, please let us know by registering to help here.
