Get Involved

Community First

 In order to sustain the plethora of engaging activities, meals, gatherings and opportunities that we weekly host we rely on volunteers, donors, and partners!  Want to get involved?  Whether you are a seminary student looking for a church to intern with, a church who is interested in partnering with our ministry, or an individual looking to get more involved in your community–we need you!  However, what is most important to us is building mutual relationships and healthy community.  Our community has a lot to give, let’s work for the Kingdom together.

The Freeze Shelter

Every winter our friends and partners from St John’s Lutheran host our community overnight on nights when the temperature drops below freezing.  This essential ministry is not merely an act of hospitality, but often life-preserving for many of our vulnerable neighbors sleeping outside.  We rely on volunteers to stay overnight, help host meals, and facilitate early morning openings.  The atmosphere is relaxed and cozy–it’s a great way to get to know people better!  We offer training and informational sessions at the beginning of each shelter season, but anyone can get involved!  To recieve more information please email us at info@mercyatl.org

Partnerships

Churches and Non-profits

We partner with a variety of churches, groups, and non-profits for the health, well-being, and benefit of our thriving community!  We cannot do what we do alone, but together we can do a lot.  For a list of our current partners and how we work together click here!  Want to work with us?  Let us know your idea for a partnership!

Student Opportunities

Are you a seminary student interested in serving with a church while in school or need to complete a church internship?  As an internship site we offer hands-on ministry experience in a unique and upbuilding context with a variety of opportunities for leadership, worship planning, pastoral care experience, supervisory, and theological formation.  For more information, please visit us or reach out to our pastoral team.

Groups + Volunteers

We love hosting groups and volunteers!  Whether your Youth Group wants to come fellowship with us for the day or members of your congregation want to share a meal with us for Sunday worship, or you are just looking to get involved in something meaningful–you are welcome!  We love getting to know new people and always welcome opportunities to be together.  But, we are a community-led congregation, so what is more important than bringing anything or doing anything for us is spending time being with us and getting to know us for the beloved human beings that we are!
