At New Mercy, we absolutely believe the best way to get plugged in and to become a part of the community is through family groups
(New Mercy’s version of small groups).

 

In fact, small groups are so fundamental to New Mercy’s vision, that we hesitate to call it a ministry. Rather, we like to think of ourselves as a church of small groups.

Fundamental to Christian life are intimate relationships. Jesus and the bible teach emphatically that life can only be truly experienced in deep, meaningful relationships with God and with people. Large groups alone, including Sunday Services, will never provide for this profound relational need effectively. Authentic Christian community occurs only when people meet regularly, pray together and for each other, provide deep accountability, support each other in struggles and crises, study the Word together, share, experience life and joy together, laugh with one another, and are vulnerable with each other. In turn, these relational elements help us to experience ourselves as individuals in a more healthy, integrated, and normalized way. All of this is best realized in the small-group context.  

If you’re looking for this type of support and encouragement in your life, please fill out the interest form below. A person will contact you with more information and specific details. Also, please feel free to try out more than one group.

Loved by critics and audiences alike, Modern Family is an award-winning group of working professionals dedicated to building a genuine Christian community.  Our weekly episodes feature honest, open, thoughtful, and often hilarious conversations about various topics ranging from God, the NY Mets, relationships, best local pastries shops, work-life balance, warm winter jackets, to whatever else is on your heart.  Our goal is to encourage one another to grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ and to abound in love for others.  Whether you are a Jay (cranky), a Gloria (passionate and dangerous), a Claire (neurotic), a Phil (a big child), a Cam (bubbly and carefree), a Mitchell (serious and low key), or whatever else, you will fit right in this awesome family.

We invite anyone who wants to share in their struggles, navigate life’s decisions together and overcome by faith. As our name implies, we want to cultivate our spiritual "inner lives" to match how we live and work on the outside.
