Mercy Street Jackson Hill Super Sunday Community Kick-Off

Mercy Street 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.
