Mercy’s Covid-19 Response
We are continuing to serve meals to up to 100 people in our neighborhood 5 days a week. We are also providing access to other essential resources and keeping our community informed. To sustain this work we need your help!
Mercy’s entire staff consists of only 3 full-time pastors, so volunteers are essential to our work. We are currently seeking on-site volunteer help.
As we continue to make adjustments and serve a growing community, one of the easiest and helpful ways to contribute to Mercy is by sharing financially. We will use your gifts to purchase food, transportation, medical supplies, and other essential resources to share with the community as we work to keep the most vulnerable among us healthy and well.
Who we are…
Mercy Community Church is a grassroots, ecumenical, open and affirming congregation that meets in the basement of a big church on a busy street in the heart of Atlanta, GA. We believe that God desires life, health, dignity, and sanctuary for us all. Whether you are in housing or not, whether you live in our neighborhood or come from far away, whether you love the church or have ever felt left out, we want to welcome you to come see us anytime as we work to build one another up in beloved community. We are open multiple days of the week for prayer, worship, study, fellowship, the breaking of bread, and the sharing of food, clothing, and hospitality.
Come see us sometime–our doors are open and you are welcome here!

At Mercy, we value
We are a church community–a group of human beings that gathers, fellowships, and cares about one another. Important though they are, we are not a service organization or a day shelter, but a group of human beings invested in building community and mutual relationships with one another. We believe that essential to being a human is having healthy, life-giving community.
Whether its community led music, taking time for reflection and prayer, or our discussion-based study of scripture, as a community of Jesus Christ we believe its important to ground ourselves in worship. Whether its a Sunday service, evening Bible Study, or our daily hour of prayer our worship is inclusive, lively, and community led.
We believe that hospitality is an essential Christian practice and we strive to create it for one another in a variety of ways. Hot breakfasts and coffee, shared lunches, pastoral care, a community clothing closet, winter shelter, and connections to various resources through community partners we strive to create home and hospitality for one another.
