Discipleship happens in community. We need other people in our lives to help us grow in our relationship with Christ. This happens through Community Groups!

What is Grouplink?

Grouplink is the way that you get connected to a community group here at Mercy Hill. During specific, three-week periods throughout the year, you will have the opportunity to sign up for a group, connect with your group leaders, and begin the process of growing in life-giving community. Groups will be available for sign-up until January 26, 2020!


What types of groups do you offer?

We offer the following types of Community Groups at Mercy Hill:
  • Young Professional – Individuals, either married or single, who are in their 20s to early 30s and finishing up their post-graduate degree or in the beginning stages of establishing a career. Group members may also have young children.
  • Multigenerational – This group seeks to learn from others that are in the same life-stage as well as those who are either one life-stage before or after you. Group members are single or married and most often in their 20’s, 30’s, 40’s, or 50’s.
  • Empty Nest – Married or single individuals who are old enough to have or have adult-age children make up this group. Members are often dealing with aging parents, approaching or in retirement, and enjoying the blessings of being a grandparent.

Where do groups meet?

Mercy Hill has over 100 groups meeting throughout the Triad. Most groups meet in the home of the group leader or at a group host home. There are also groups currently meeting on college campuses. Our goal is for you to find a group that is within ten to fifteen minutes from where you live.

What do the groups study?

In order to create church-wide unity in discipleship, all group leaders are provided with a weekly teaching guide that is written by our Community Groups team. These guides are prepared in conjunction with the sermon of that week and seek to study the same biblical truth from a different passage of Scripture than what is preached on the weekend.
Group leaders may also provide supplemental studies during the summer months or based on a perceived need in the group.

What do the groups do for childcare?

We understand that having children can sometimes make it more difficult to join a Community Group, and we want to make it as easy as possible for parents to attend. Each group leader ultimately decides how childcare is handled in their group.
Mercy Hill offers a childcare reimbursement for parents while they attend a group. Families secure childcare (your group leader can also be a great resource in how you may be able to find a qualified sitter), fill out the Childcare Reimbursement Form at the end of each month, have the Community Group leader sign it, and follow the submission instructions on the bottom of the form.
There are a few groups that have the ability to offer childcare at the home, but the vast majority of group leaders encourage the reimbursement method due to logistics and to prevent distractions.
