What are Community Groups?

Mercy Hill Community Groups are intentional gatherings of 10-15 people (on average) that meet together once a week in homes across the Triad to study the Bible together, pray for each other, and build authentic Christian community. Community Groups offer a non-threatening environment to meet new friends, get more connected to the church, and grow in your relationship with Jesus.

Why Community Groups?

At Mercy Hill we strongly believe that discipleship happens in community. What we mean is that no one is meant to follow Jesus alone. God has designed us to be in a relationship with Him and others. We believe that the support provided by a gospel-centered community is an essential component to being in a relationship with Jesus. Some of the benefits of being connected are:

  • Authentic Christian Community

  • Prayer

  • Bible Study


Groups spend time each week building relationships with one another, studying the passage from that week’s sermon and how it applies to their lives, and praying for one another.

The content for our groups is sermon based, so groups discuss the passage from that week’s sermon and how it applies to their lives.

Each group will have a leader that has been through Mercy Hill’s application and training process.

Mercy Hill has provided Microsoft Teams for each group to use. However, each group has the freedom to choose whatever platform works best for them. (Zoom, Google Hangouts, etc.)

Group meeting days/times vary and generally last about an hour and a half.

Our upcoming Spring session for these groups will last from April 19th to June 13th.
