As a missional church, we want to be actively engaged in our community and are not interested in sitting on the sidelines of what God is doing in our world. We believe that Christ desires to use us in bringing others to faith in him and that it is no mere coincidence that our church is located in the community that it is. We are eager to develop and maintain a variety of ways for us to reach out to our community. This includes drop-in times, coffee nights, Moms and tots groups, activity nights, prayer walks, and Life Explored/Christianity Explored programs, all of which are usually run by members of Mercy from our office and rec centre at the Mercy Centre.
At the same time, we also recognize that God desires people from “every nation, tribe, and tongue” to worship Him, so we also seek to support the work of global missions in two ways: encouraging financial giving, and supporting members in serving as missionaries and mission workers in various places around the globe. We not only encourage members to serve on short-term mission trips (i.e. a couple of weeks to several months) but also encourage them to consider whether God is calling them to a life-long commitment to missions.
