Circle of Mercy

Circle of Mercy is a welcoming, inclusive, and celebrative community of believers. We are committed to spiritual formation that nurtures prayerful discernment, invites compassionate service, and prompts prophetic action. We believe that turning to God also means turning to the world—especially to its broken places—as agents of healing and hope.

We are an ecumenical congregation, drawing from a variety of confessional traditions, but choosing to be affiliated with the Alliance of Baptists and the United Church of Christ. We participate and offer leadership in a variety of mission involvements locally, nationally, and internationally. At the heart of our community life is worship. Every Sunday evening, a lively mix of adults and children gathers around a welcoming table to sing and pray, share concerns and celebrations, reflect on the intersection of Scripture and life, meditate in silence, and break the bread of communion. There’s always room for others who are on a journey to engage their faith and the world.
