Hot Off the Presses…

Baby Shower for Hanna Forst

All ladies are invited to a luncheon after church on Sunday, June 10th to celebrate and pray for Hanna and baby boy Forst. In lieu of traditional gifts, we want to bless Hanna with some essentials (diapers – target or aldi brand, wipes, etc). Also, please sign up below to bring food to share.  See Shelly Leary for more information or click here.

What we already told you about…

New Member Sunday

This Sunday we will be welcoming new in-covenant members.  If you are able, please stay after the service for a light lunch and a time of fellowship with our new members.

Family Day of Service

This Sunday, we will also be participating in the Family Day of Service.  Because of the new member Sunday, we will be starting our service a little later than originally announced. This year, Mercy Hill will be participating in trash clean up in our local community. If you have any questions please see James or Valorie Hoffman.

Samson Society meetings

The Samson Society will resume its weekly meetings at the beginning of June.  This group for men provides an opportunity to share openly and challenge one another to believe the incredible news that God actually knows us, loves us, and has restored us to himself.  If you are interested or have any questions please contact Tim Pacek (

Confession of Faith…


Proverbs 31:10-31 (ESV)

The Woman Who Fears the Lord

10 [a] An excellent wife who can find?  She is far more precious than jewels.

11 The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain.

12 She does him good, and not harm, all the days of her life.

13 She seeks wool and flax, and works with willing hands.

14 She is like the ships of the merchant; she brings her food from afar.

15 She rises while it is yet night and provides food for her household

   and portions for her maidens.

16 She considers a field and buys it; with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard.

17 She dresses herself[b] with strength and makes her arms strong.

18 She perceives that her merchandise is profitable. Her lamp does not go out at night.

19 She puts her hands to the distaff, and her hands hold the spindle.

20 She opens her hand to the poor and reaches out her hands to the needy.

21 She is not afraid of snow for her household, for all her household are clothed in scarlet.[c]

22 She makes bed coverings for herself; her clothing is fine linen and purple.

23 Her husband is known in the gates when he sits among the elders of the land.

24 She makes linen garments and sells them; she delivers sashes to the merchant.

25 Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come.

26 She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.

27 She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.

28 Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her:

29 “Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all.”

30 Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.

31 Give her of the fruit of her hands,

   and let her works praise her in the gates.
