Our Mission
Mercy Hill Church exists to make a measurable impact for Jesus in Rochester, Southeastern Minnesota and the world.
Our Core Values
everyone matters.
At Mercy Hill, you and your family matter. You were important enough for Jesus to die for, therefore you are important enough to be loved and accepted by your church family.
everyone forgives.
At Mercy Hill, we walk in forgiveness and love towards each other. This world is a tough and unforgiving place, therefore your church should provide a compassionate and merciful community for you to be a part of.
everyone grows.
At Mercy Hill, everyone is called to impact their world for Jesus. Therefore, we will equip you to grow in your faith and to live an extraordinary life for God.
We would love to have you visit us
for one of these special events and services.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us!
All Church Prayer
Come seek God’s will with Mercy Hill Church as we meet together and pray.  God is going to do great things at MHC, but we must continue to unite together and seek Him.  That is the job of the church.

    Series: (All)
    Happy Fathers Day!

    Broken Bodies
    Series: Body Parts
    Pastor Fred continues talking about the Church Body today and how some members of the Body have been hurt in the past, or are hurting currently. He reminds us that God told us to lift one another up in prayer, the more so when we are hurting and broken.
    The phrase "It's not my problem/job" doesn't belong here! We are everyday believers who are called and anointed for everyday ministry. He goes on to explain what active steps of belief for healing look like.
