Jeremy Casella visits Mercy Hill

Mercy Hill is excited to have Jeremy Casella visit our church on November 9.  It is also the same Sunday that we are receiving new members.  

Jeremy's visit is important for several reasons.  One is that his music, love of hymns and love for the church has influenced Mercy Hill's development musically these last few years.  Particularly is work with the great hymn Guide me O Thou Great Jehovah which you can listen to below. 

Secondly he will be performing a House Show Sunday evening.  We are working on those details.

A Brief Recap: the History of Mercy Hill

This past Sunday our church gathered at Atkinson Park for our anniversary Sunday. This is a chance for us to get outside, enjoy the fall weather, and remind ourselves of what God is doing among us, and why we're organizing this church.

I preached a message which touched on two parts of our mission statement, "Helping people thrive in Christ." I explained first what it means to be "in Christ." And second, how bearing fruit is what we mean by "thriving in Christ."

Also as part of my message, I reviewed a brief history of where we've come from as a congregation. I'll reproduce that history/recap here. As you read, please pray to God and thank Him for all He's doing in our midst, and ask Him to do even more in the new year that's coming.

By His Grace,

Pastor Phil Henry

 

A brief history of Mercy Hill

I was called by the New Jersey Presbytery in September of 2008 to begin a new church ministry in Gloucester County.
The problem was that, at the time, I lived in southern Arizona, had never lived in New Jersey, we had money, no mother church, and I had never planted a church before.

Join area Reformed churches of Southern New Jersey as we gather together to remember God's gracious providence displayed during the Protestant Reformation of the 15th and 16th Centuries. 

On Sunday, October 26, 2014 at 6:00pm Covenant Presbyterian (520 South Kings Highway Cherry Hill, NJ) will be hosting a Reformation Day Service. This is a joint Lord's Day Evening Service of various churches throughout our region. There will also be a combined choir under the direction of Rob Hobgood of Covenant PCA.

A time of fellowship will follow immediately after the service.
