We know . . .
visiting a church can be intimidating. It’s a new place, with new people, and we may do things a little bit differently than you’re used to. Honestly though, we're just a bunch of people living life together and trying to follow Jesus, and we would love to have you join us!
Some things you may be wondering before you visit …
Where and When do we meet?
Our main gathering time is Sunday morning at 10am. Our address is 1120 Sawmill Rd, Raleigh, NC 27615.
Do I have to say anything, give any money, or will I be singled out in any way?
No, no, and no. We provide an opportunity for our church family to give an offering, but we don’t want anyone to feel obligated to give. Actually, we have a gift for you. Stop by the table in our lobby to pick up a complimentary CD and pen. You can leave a guest card in the wire basket there if you care to.
What should I wear?
Wear whatever makes you comfortable. Some of us wear shorts or jeans with a t-shirt. You’ll often see Pastor Mike teaching with a UNC t-shirt and jeans. But if you feel more comfortable dressing up, please do! You may be the best dressed, but you’ll never be out of place.
What does a normal sunday morning look like?
Every Sunday morning we have complimentary coffee and friendly faces to greet you and point you in the right direction. We usually start with contemporary worship, followed by a short time for people to say hello to one another. Then we have a teaching with time for prayer at the end. We start at 10am and we’re done before lunch!
What is worship like?
Our worship style is contemporary with guitars, drums, keys, etc. We play a mix of modern and classic worship music with the occasional hymn. Click here to see more of what worship is like at Mercy Vineyard.
What about my kids?
Every Sunday we have programs just for kids. A nursery for children age 0 to 3, Kid’s Ministry for children age 4 through 3rd grade, and a tween class for 4th grade through 6th grade. Our youth group for students 7th-12th grade dismisses right after worship in the main gathering. Find out more about kids or youth by clicking the link below.
