a ministry of Chapelwood United Methodist Church,
will expand its ministry and outreach into central Houston with the launch
of a second service beginning Sunday, February 6th at 10 a.m. at The
Council on Alcohol and Drugs Houston, located at 303 Jackson Hill.
The football-themed "Super Sunday" Community Kick-Off Event invites people
from all walks of life to "come-as-you-are" to a special pre-service
gathering followed by Mercy Street's trademark non-traditional church
service designed "for people who hate church." The service features live
music, a message and more in a casual setting. A post-service party will
include refreshments, live music, giveaways and the opportunity to interact with members of the community and Mercy Street ministry program.
The Mercy Street Jackson Hill location will continue with regular services
every Sunday at 10:30 a.m. in the auditorium of The Council on Alcohol and
Drugs Houston building.
Mercy Street's mission is to create a safe harbor for the hurt, the lost,
the seeking, so that we might experience the radical grace of God. Our community forms a mosaic of people diverse in experiences and backgrounds
but common in a desire to seek a closer relationship with God. Many of our
community members are involved in recovery from addictions or bad church
experiences. Saturday night at Mercy Street Greenbay and Sunday mornings at
Mercy Street Jackson Hill is filled with live music, authentic faith
journeys and practical messages set in a casual "come-as-you-are"
environment. We extend a gift of Christian community to everyone, no matter what faith, religion, addiction or experience.
