Prayer is the key
"Pray, and keep praying. Be alert and thankful when you pray." Col. 4:2
Pray for our world as you watch the news each day. Pray for members of other religious faiths to encounter the life-giving Jesus Christ of the Bible. Pray for the unreached, unengaged areas/groups of our world who have no one to share the good news of Jesus with them.

Missions Focus for Children:
A Quarter Can Change the World
Our Kingdom Kids Sunday School program has been collecting weekly offerings since January 2014 with the goal of buying a goat and two chickens for a needy family in another part of our world through World Vision (www.worldvisiongifts.org). Each child is encouraged to bring one quarter each Sunday.
Local Outreach Endeavors
- Open Arms Care Center (see below)
- Just One Offering. Each Sunday we receive our Just One offering, a special offering collected to assist the poor and struggling in our community. All in attendance are invited to give one dollar–just one, no more and no less!–as they enter worship.
- Christmas Angel Tree Project. A cherished tradition at Wonderful Mercy is the adoption of several local families who are not able to provide their children with Christmas presents. We shower these families with gifts and with a reminder that they matter to God.
- Patterson Elementary School.
We value our involvement in our community! What better way to show this
than with our next-door neighbors? Every year we take fruit trays and
baked goods to the staff at Patterson Elementary School. We do this at
the beginning of the school year to show our appreciation for all they
do for the children in our community.
