Mercy Community gatherings are scheduled based on the needs and goals of ministry; so time and place of a gathering is based on what best serves the community. This may mean a Sunday morning gathering, but could just as likely mean meeting any day of the week at any time of the day.
When there is a Mercy Community gathering, there may be traditional practices such as singing, Bible reading, instruction, prayer, or communion. But we don’t believe every gathering need tell the gospel story in full, so little visual liturgy will exist. What is present will likely be pursued in fresh and unusual ways.
We are convinced all traditions, structures and practices of the Church should be evaluated. Any tradition, structure or practice that impedes, distracts from or is inconsistent with holistic gospel-ministry should be considered expendable.
