advent01A Call for Testimonies: MERCYhouse, we want to hear from YOU!! Read on...

The season of Advent, which begins the 4th Sunday before Christmas, is almost upon us. It is a time when we, the Church, place ourselves in the position of Old Testament Israel, longing for the promised Messiah to come, who is born at Christmas. We, as Christians, also look to Christ's second coming, when He will restore all things. We know from scripture that no one but the Father knows when He will return, but we are told to be ready.

 

As you experience the darkness of living in a fallen world, or even battle the darkness within your own soul, how are you looking to the Light (Christ)?

How does the promise of Christ's return impact your life in the now?

In this season of reflection, preparation, and longing, what is God teaching you, and how is He calling you to respond?

If you have answers to these questions, please share them with us. We want to hear YOUR Advent story. Please submit a brief testimony, in writing, related to these Advent themes, to our Worship Leader, Cindy Bishop at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it by Monday, Nov. 23rd. You may be selected to read your testimony aloud during one of our Sunday services during Advent. If we get enough responses, we may even be able to make up an Advent booklet for our congregation. Let us exhort and encourage one another by sharing what God is doing in our lives!

freeridesshannoncharlieIt's that time of year again.  The Friday and Saturday of Halloween weekend we'll be providing free rides to anyone who calls 548-9474 from 10pm to 2am.  The purpose of this is to keep intoxicated drivers off of the road on the biggest party weekend of the year.  This requires an army of volunteers to pull off.  The Free Rides Team is wanting to up our game this year and raise the number of vans available from 12 to 15.  That means even more volunteers are needed.  Sign-up today and share this link with everyone you know who might want to help.  The sooner we know these shifts are filled the better!  See below for job descriptions and link for registration:

Driver - Drives a van and must be 21 years of age for insurance purposes.
Navigator - Sits in passenger seat and takes calls from dispatcher and takes down info. about pick-ups and drop-offs and relays info. to the driver.
Host - Sits in the back of van with guests.  Helps people get in and out of the van.  Engages guests in conversation. 
Switchboard - Receives calls that are coming into home base (@ MERCYhouse) from guests.  Takes down the info. about pick-ups and drop-offs to relay to switchboard. 
Dispatch - Communicates with Navigators regarding info. about pick-ups and drop-offs.  Dispatch is located at MERCYhouse.   
Hospitality - If you are not up for the shift work, we definitely need healthy and not so healthy food to keep the troops energized.  Please sign-up to bring food for one of the evenings.
Sponsorship - This outreach costs about 250/van which is around $4000.  We have received money from the Baptist Convention of New England, from local businesses, and individuals.  We are still in need of fund to fully fund this endeavor.   

It's fine to sign-up for more than one shift.  Some have been known to do the "double/double" which is both nights both shifts.  You can also change jobs from shift to shift.  Click icons below to sign-up!
