A Local Men's Support Group: Shame to Hope

"Helping men walk from the shame of sexual brokenness to the hope of Jesus’ Light."

A man in our area is leading a local men's support group to help men who struggle with sexual brokenness and sin — including things like pornography, masturbation, same-sex attraction, adultery, etc.

The hope is that this group can provide  a safe place to put their sin in the light, as Jesus said, "But if we walk in the Light, as He is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin." (1 John 1:7)

The group started this past fall and will resume meeting beginning January 2015. The group will include biblical study and counsel to get men started on the journey of turning away from their sin and towards the mercy and grace found in Jesus Christ 

This group will meet weekly in the Gloucester County area and meetings are open to any man in our community who wants to break the bondage of sexual sin and embrace a relationship with our almighty Father.

If you are interested in more information about this group or desire to participate, please contact Pastor Phil Henry or send an email to Andy at shametohope at gmail dot com.




On February 6-7, Mercy Hill will be live streaming the women's conference IF:Gathering. IF:Gathering seeks to gather, equip, and unleash women to live out God’s calling on their lives. The 2014 IF:Gathering saw 40,000 groups of women across the world meet in their own communities to stream the Austin based conference. The goals were simple: to encourage women to walk in freedom from sin, to set their eyes on Jesus, and to dream about what God wants to do with them individually and corporately. 

All of the women of Mercy Hill are invited to join us this February 6th (5:30-9pm) and 7th (9am-9pm) to be encouraged, build relationships, enjoy fellowship, break bread together, and be inspired by what God desires to do in our lives and our community. We are capping the conference at 50 women, and we will be opening registration to Mercy Hill attenders and invited friends for two weeks before we make our site public. 

Registration is currently open and can be found here.  For more information on IF:Gathering, visit www.ifgathering.com.  To ask any questions and for updates on our plans or the weekend, visit IF: Sewell 2015 on Facebook, watch The City for updates, or direct your questions to Chrissie Vare or Shelly Leary.  


Jeremy Casella "The Living Room Show"

Jeremy Casella, a singer / songwriter will be performing an acoustic house concert this Sunday, November 9th from 7:00pm-8:30pm at Seth and Kellie Frost's home (512 Centre Avenue Pitman, NJ 08071). The cost to attend is $15.00 per person which will be collected at the end of the concert. Please click here to RSVP.

Jeremy has released 5 full-length albums independently and has been part of various side projects (The Message:PsalmsThe Gospel Coalition – Songs From The Book Of Luke) and has worked as a producer and songwriter for several years now.

Seeking to communicate Truth & Beauty in his work as an artist, Jeremy has also been involved with The Square Peg Alliance (a fellowship of working artists including Andrew Peterson & Jill Phillips) and the Indelible Grace hymns movement, featuring Casella’s rewrite of “Guide Me O Thou Great Jehovah” which is sung in churches all over the country.

Jeremy describes a living room concert as a great way for you to share Jeremy's music with your friends and community. The nature of a Living Room Show is simple and organic, so it allows for a unique experience because there is no stage, no lights and no separation. Just songs & stories being shared directly with the gathered listening audience.
