What to Expect
IT’S MY FIRST TIME…WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
Our services are energetic and include practical teaching as well as an opportunity for you to receive prayer. There are classes for nursery age from zero to 5 years old and then kids classes for 6 to 11 years old. We have a coffee shop that includes soft drinks and pastries. So, if you skipped breakfast we can hook you up! Our Pastors speak the Word in a way that you can apply it to you life and find freedom. You will not leave the same! We can’t wait for you to join us! Sunday 8:00am 9:45am or 11:30am, and we have a Wednesday 7:00pm online service!
WHERE DO I PARK & WHICH ENTRANCE DO I GO IN?
We have guest parking spaces just for YOU! Parking attendants will be located at the front of the parking lot and will be more than happy to direct you to the right spot for your convenience. If you choose to park further away from the church; we have several golf carts ready and waiting for assist you.
We have several entrances. The main one is the covered portico, and it is the closest one to the coffee shop!
WHAT ARE YOUR VALUES AND BELIEFS?
We believe that as a church we are to be a light to our community. We are a place where the hurting and hopeless come to get answers and leave with healing and hope. We believe that with the same measure of forgiveness we have been given, we also need to give out to others. We are the living, breathing hands and feet of Jesus. We aren’t just a club of believers that look cute, but we are people on a mission to make a difference in this life. We are a family with ups and downs and issues; so do not be afraid to join us….none of us are perfect on this side of heaven!

Something a little more then you woke up in is fine by us! There is no dress code at MercyGate Church. Just come as you are, ready to recieve God’s Word and what He has for you.
WHAT ABOUT CHILDCARE?
We LOVE children! We have a full nursery staff each week for both services on Sunday for under 5, and also, we have Kid’s classes for 5-11. Our main priority in the MercyGate nursery is to show them God’s love while teaching them His word.
Be prepared to show your ID the first time. Keeping your little ones safe and secure is a top priority for us. Each service you will receive an ID sticker that you must show when picking up your child. Keeping them safe, secure, and happy while you take time to receive what you need in service is what we love to do! We can’t wait to see you here!
