MERCY THROUGH US

SUNDAY MORNING DONUTS AND BAGELS
 
To encourage fellowship at Mercy, we'd like to invite the church to enjoy coffee, donuts, and bagels every Sunday morning in the congregational gathering space at Temple Shalom. The Temple already provides coffee for us, but we'd like to extend the invitation for congregants to volunteer for Sundays in which to bring donuts and bagels. Sign up by following the link below. Thanks and see you at 10:15 on Sunday!

MERCY SUMMER FELLOWSHIP

We are planning to meet together this summer on one more occasion to enjoy "Mercy Summer Fellowship."  This will be a great time of fellowship and teaching.  Of course, there will be great food also.  This is where you come in! We would love for some of the women of the church to help organize the dinner for these two nights.  There are multiple opportunities for you to serve – everything from planning the meals, shopping for the food, preparing the meals, & serving.  To sign up for dinner or to serve, follow the link below.

ANNOUNCEMENTS & UPDATES
SERMON SERIES

This summer we will continue in our sermon series simply called, "Foundations." This series touches on what we're all about - our mission, values, and vision. 

BAPTISM SUNDAY

We have an upcoming Baptism Sunday on August 25. Join us as we take our vow as a congregation to assist in the Christian nurture of these children. Email  Anna Fryant if you would like to have your child baptized on this day.

CHURCH CENTER APP

We've recently been updating our check-in process on Sunday mornings, and we'd like you to help us make this process even smoother! Going forward, we'll utilize Church Center App to expedite children's check-in and to update information for the directory. Church Center App is a free app connected to Planning Center, which is the service we use for children's check-in and volunteer coordination. To begin using Church Center App, download from the App Store. After downloading follow the steps within the app by first adding your phone number and then going to the check-in tab where you will be able to check in your children. Once you get to church, simply scan your code with the check-in iPads located in the south entrance where our children's classrooms are located. If you wish to update your information, you may click on your profile in the top right of the app. This will automatically update your information in Planning Center. We appreciate your cooperation in making this process as easy and secure as possible. Should you have any questions, please don't hesitate to speak to our ministry coordinator Anna Fryant on Sunday morning or email her at anna@mercydallas.com.

MISSIONS - RUF @ TCU

Bradford Green has accepted a call to be the next campus minister at Texas Christian University (TCU) in Fort Worth, Texas. They are overjoyed that God has called them back to Cristina's alma mater-- and closer to her family in Houston. The Green's recently welcomed Nathaniel 'Wilkes' Green, who was born on May 7th. He's happy and healthy and a joy to his whole family. 

The Green's have been serving at RUF Hendrix in Conway, Arakansas. Pray for their family as Bradford transitions to being the TCU campus minister and as they sell their house to move to Fort Worth. Pray also for the Hendrix students the Green's love and their new squad at TCU.

 
WELCOME TO MERCY
We rejoice with the Butcher, Leonard and Welsh families as they celebrated the baptisms of Isla Reese, Zephyr Rose and Lochlan Mitchell.

We gladly welcomed the Butcher family and Weston and Reed Vanderhill as new communing members.
