*Our building will remain closed until further notice. Our first in-person worship gathering of the fall is currently planned for Sunday, October 4th. Capacity will be limited and more details will be communicated. A Livestream service option will continue to be available on Sundays at 9:30am EST for our Kids Gathering and 10:00am EST for our Worship Gathering. Gatherings may be accessed at marshill.org/live or on Facebook Live.
We get it. It’s hard to reach out for help. Most people prefer to be on the giving end rather than the receiving end. But we all need a village, and we want to be part of yours. This is part of what it means to be the Church. If you have needs - from finances to transportation, someone to run errands or provide a listening ear - please let us know. Email our Congregational Care Pastor, Brian Catlett, or fill out the form below and we will be in touch asap.
You can help financially support others by giving to either the Joy Box [general fund] or the White Bucket Project. A generous portion of your Joy Box giving goes into our Outreach fund and is thoughtfully shared with local and global organizations to help with both relief and development efforts.
You can also choose to designate your giving toward The White Bucket Project - a benevolence fund based on the reality that within our community, one person may have more than enough, while somebody else has so much need they can’t see their way out. As people continue to be impacted by COVID-19, White Bucket funds will be used not only to help those within our Mars Hill community, but also under resourced individuals and families involved with our Outreach partners.
Click the Give button below, sign in or give anonymously, and select Joy Box or “The White Bucket Project” as your designated fund.
Ready to roll up your sleeves, to give of your time and energy? Simply complete the I Can Help form to help us understand more about your interest and skills, and we will email you pertinent opportunities as they arise. From running errands, providing transportation, tech or construction help, or a listening ear or a word of prayer, you are needed in someone’s village. To get started, click the link below or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Friends and family of Mars Hill,
So much has happened since our first Livestream-only gathering on Sunday March 15. We celebrated Easter from our homes, have seen incredibly faithful giving to our Clean Hands initiative, had a Lead Pastor departure and a recent announcement of our Interim Plan. Through it all, the health and safety of our community, volunteers and staff have remained a top priority as COVID-19 has waxed and waned.
Also during this season, our building has been under construction since the sale of a portion of our property to Grandville Public Schools. New Babies Ministry areas have been constructed, along with new Facilities storage and staff offices.
As we get closer to that construction being completed, we have been prayerfully considering in-person worship gathering options, in addition to our high quality Livestream offering.
Our Ministry Lead Team and Elders have agreed on a target date of October 4 to offer a limited-in-size in-person gathering for Sunday morning worship. More details will be communicated over the next few weeks about attending for those who are healthy and comfortable doing so. The Livestream service will remain available on Sundays at 10am and throughout the week through our website, marshill.org/live and Facebook Live.
Thank you for your continued patience, generosity and prayerful support during this unique season.
"May the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful." (Col 3:15)
Ashlee, Troy and Ken (ELT)
