At Mercy Hill we believe that the church is God’s demonstration community.  Simply put, that means that we are to be a reflection of the God that we serve and the God that we serve did not stand idly by; his love was active and intentional.  As the church, we have the privilege to represent Christ in the community which God has placed us!  Serve Saturday is a great opportunity to get involved in what God is doing in the Triad.  We have multiple projects all across the Triad area and are partnering with several ministries to meet real needs for real people.  Check out the list below and even sign up to serve on one of the projects!

The Care Center is preparing to move to a new location in order to be able to continue expanding as a ministry. They need help cleaning out their current location. This includes moving files and other office supplies, deep cleaning their current facility, and moving furniture. Heavy lifting will sometimes be expected, but will not be required by all volunteers. Volunteers should come dressed as if they are spring cleaning their house. Cleaning supplies will be provided by Mercy Hill, but it would be helpful for volunteers to also bring cleaning items from home (brushes, rags, cleaners, etc).
