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!

    Stewarding God’s Gift Within Me
    Stewarding ourselves, and those around us, can only be done correctly when we realize that He died for them as well as us. We belong to Him, and our perception of Him, and what we believe about His Love, directly impacts the health of our soul.
    Matthew 24:14-30

    Peace in the Storm
    Have you ever considered that the First Christmas was "a perfect storm"? Yet in that storm, God chose to send His Peace.
    Storms will make you BETTER... or BITTER; draw your CLOSER... or take you FARTHER; make you STRONGER... or WEAKER.
    Pastor Fred goes on to define wrong responses to the storms, explain three lessons that can be learned, and describe how we should respond as Spirit-filled Christians.
