bapaaronfearsThis Sunday we continue the summer sermon series - Ecclesia.  We'll be learning more about the vision God has for his gathered/scattered community.  Last week we talked about the gathering that happens at the Lord's Supper.  This week we'll explore the gathering that is to happen around the ordinance of Baptism.  Who should be baptized?  What is to be the method of baptism?  What is the meaning of baptism?  We'll be seeking answers to these questions and more so hope to see you on Sunday at 9:15am or 11:15am.

sethThis weekend MERCYhouse is offering three small groups that are more content driven than our community groups.  These all require outside reading in preparation for the weekly group discussion and are designed to help group members grow in a very focused way.  Here are the offerings:

WOMENS BOOK GROUP & TEA TIME

Hannah Hurnard's book Hind's Feet on High Places offers a fictional allegorical account of the "all-in" Christian life. This past semester we've heard sermons on what it means to truly follow Christ as a member of the motley movement. We'll read a couple chapters of the book each week to further reflect on and discuss what it looks like to be "all in" and what challenges or obstacles may keep us from being true disciples. First meeting Friday, May 31 at 4 pm at 125 Montague Rd is open to anyone in interested in finding more about this group. The exact time and meeting place can be flexible and we'll discuss as a group.

When: Friday Afternoon Tea Time (4pm); beginning Friday May 31

Where: Bill & Val Cooleys home, 125 Montague Rd, Amherst MA

 THE JESUS CLASS (COED)

Come alongside other brothers and sisters and learn the essential truth about the core of the Christian faith – the person and work of Jesus. This six-week class will give you the essential truths for understanding who Jesus is, why he matters, and how to articulate this to others. Class topics will include Jesus in Trinity, Jesus as Creator, The meaning of the death of Jesus, as well as the meaning of his resurrection. Class participants will be required to buy the book: Doctrine: What Christians Should Believe by Mark Driscoll and Gerry Breshears for $10 and take a quiz each week.

When: Sundays; 9:15am beginning on Sunday June 2, 2013

Where: First Floor Building @ MERCYhouse

WOMENS STUDY - FOUND ON MY KNEES: FROM BROKENNESS TO BLESSING

"Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert." Isaiah 43:19 Our lifelong journey to faith in Jesus Christ is filled with seasons of everything from trial and hardship to triumph and victory. This six-week Bible study, Found On My Knees, will venture into the depths and the riches of God's Word as we together in faith move from brokenness to blessing. We will study themes of surrender, trust, faith, obedience, and more. Let us become women who are found on our knees at the feet of Jesus in passionate pursuit of Him.

When: Sundays; 9:15am beginning on Sunday June 2, 2013

Where: First Floor Building @ MERCYhouse

Prayer for Las Malvinas PDF Print E-mail
Written by Robert Krumrey   
Sunday, 02 June 2013 23:29

cisternJust a quick update about the Las Malvinas community in the Dominican Republic.  This is the community that we sent 17 MHers to serve two weeks ago.  The work project that we started included the digging of a cistern for delivering fresh water to about 300 families.  When we left it was only a very deep hole.  This is a picture of the cistern as of Sunday.  The project  is moving ahead and we pray that it would continue to do so.  Please lift up this community in prayer - that they would receive the water that that they need for their physical well being but also that Jesus would continue to reveal himself as the water that their souls need as well.  If you'd like to contribute to cover the final 1000 dollars of the project, donate HERE and place your donation in the "mission trip" category.

groupWe are launching our summer community groups this week.  These groups are designed to help people grow in their relationship with God and with each other.  Each group will eat together and then have an informal discussion about the content of the sermon from the previous Sunday.  The goal of these discussions will be to apply truth to our everyday lives.  We'll also check in with each other about concerns that we have and pray for one another during the group and throughout the week.  Here are the three options for these groups:

Mission Trip to the Dominican PDF Print E-mail
Written by Robert Krumrey

docaribThis week, 17 MHers will be heading down to the Dominican Republic to serve in a community in the city of Santo Domingo.  The community is called Las Malvinas.  We'll be heading there on Thursday, May 16 and returning the following Thursday.  Our hope for this trip is that we would build some great relationships within the community as well as meet some physical needs -  all resulting in pointing people to Jesus.  The physical need being met is providing 100 families with clean drinking water.  It's going to take about 4 days of hard work laying pipe and installing pumps and a cistern.  We are asking that people would pray for us during this trip.  Here are a few of the requests that we'd like for you to lift up:

  1. Health and safety of the team:  Any time you travel you expose yourself to different bugs and we want people to be able to serve at full strength and come home healthy.
  2. Team unity:  Pray that a group of people that don't even know each other will bond quickly and work harmoniously together.  Pray that friendships would be built that would continue once we are back.   
  3. Demonstration and Proclamation of the Gospel:  Pray that we would show and tell the good news about Jesus in our actions and our words.  Pray for those who are Spanish speakers to have good conversations about why we are there.  Pray that our actions and attitudes would speak volumes about the Lord that we serve.  Pray that hearts would be open to the Good News.    
  4. Discipleship:  Pray for the spiritual growth of those that are going.  That God would use this trip as a means of maturing each team member resulting in repenting from sin and growth in the practice of spiritual disciplines and the use of spiritual gifts.  Pray that this growth would continue to carry over into daily life once we have returned.  

We will keep you posted during the week on The TABLE.  If you haven't joined, take a minute to fill out a profile so you can get real time updates.  

Thanks for your prayers!
