WHAT DOES ORGANIC MC MISSION LOOK LIKE?
Every neighborhood has its own set of daily rhythms and values, so each Mercy Community will look somewhat different in its lifestyle while maintaining the common ideals of gospel-oriented, gospel-centered, gospel-driven Worship, Community and Mission.
All cultures express relationship through six common rhythms. MC participants look to connect with others in the community by understanding and interacting around these six rhythms.
Every person has a story as does every people-group. Understanding and encouraging communication in and around the personal or local story will develop relationship.
Understanding comes through asking good questions, listening and engagement occurs when we answer the questions that are actually being asked.
When what is most desired or needed is received, it is a considered blessing and opens the door to deeper relationship.
Done together, eating is an expression of family, love and acceptance. Eating together expresses and develops relationship like nothing else.
We celebrate what we value and value what we celebrate. Entering into local celebrations, serving to advance and improve the community celebration builds trusting and lasting relationship.
Spiritual and physical rest will result in productivity creativity. Our American secular culture moves at a frenetic pace. Being a people who are at rest will speak peace in such an environment and allow us to have the energy to serve our weary and burdened neighbors.
