Welcome to Mercy!
We are a newer church in Sioux Falls and glad you're taking the time to check us out today!
New people are always welcome in our worship gatherings, small groups, local and global service. There is no "typical" Mercy Church person. We have lots of people in every stage of life and a ton of kids.
We are a thinking, passionate, faith-filled and questioning spiritual family. Our goal is not to make you a mindless-consumer of a show for human praise - but a thinking, engaged, family member who is part of, and does the kingdom of God stuff.
Making Jesus' name greater in Sioux Falls is our goal by helping you become a bigger Christian - rooted and grounded in God's love. Jesus is the definition and definitive picture of God's love.
Jesus showed and taught another way: the beautiful Kingdom of God.
Ready for healthy spirituality? Then you're ready for Mercy!
Sunday Worship Gatherings
Sunday's are the traditional day of Christian worship because Jesus rose from the dead on Sunday. In the ancient church it was also called the "8th day" - first day of the future.
We worship on Sundays at these times:
9am the classic service with nursery and kids activity packs (about 60 minutes)
10:30am the modern/renewal gathering with nursery and MercyKids ministry (About 75 minutes).
1:30 pm Amharic Language Worship
To get the most out of a worship gathering:
Come about 5-10 minutes before start time. Meet a greeter and ask any questions
Sunday's sermons/talks are always based on the Bible with the goal to hear the word of God through His Spirit's power in the gathered face-to-face accountable community, re-ordering our lives and world around the Love of Jesus.
Saturdays from 6-7pm is a drop in prayer meeting. We also have a daily office available on the resources page and prayer cards by the pastor's study in the lobby to encourage your prayer life.
Church of Small Groups!
Go to our Mercy Groups page to learn more.
We are transitioning this fall to a new structure with geographic home groups, men's/women's groups and interest(affinity) groups.

Prayer is the Primary Work of God's People.
We believe that nothing of lasting value can be done unless it is bathed in prayer. So passionate was his belief that prayer undergirds all ministry, Alliance founder A. B. Simpson was compelled to create a prayer league to focus on the world’s evangelization. He believed that the Prayer Alliance would “prove to be the mightiest force in the spread of missions;” that force still drives us today.
Join us and sister congregation Gospel of Mercy every Saturday from 6-7pm for a prayer meeting in the worship center. Come for 10 minutes or for the whole hour. There are prayer cards available in the lobby. Go to our resources tab for prayer patterns, plans, daily office. Whatever you use - you learn to pray by doing it!
