As a church, our vision is to be a Jesus people for the sake of the world. Mars Hill leadership recently discerned a call to extend this vision into the city of Grand Rapids with a hope that we would be a church that is in proximity to and mutually formed by local communities that faithfully served from afar. If Grandville is our "Jerusalem", Grand Rapids is our "Judea". We believe that God wants to do more in our city, and we're excited to be one of many church communities joining together to bear witness to His Kingdom’s work.
We can't wait to welcome you to something we have been dreaming about for years. We gather to connect with other Jesus People For The Sake Of The World in a relaxed environment as we sing, pray, and learn more about our great God. For the month of May, we will be meeting outside. Bring your own lawn chair, a hat, and some sunglasses. We ask that everyone ages 3 and up wear a mask.
Where is Mars Hill Grand Rapids located?
We are renting East Congregational Church [1005 Giddings Ave SE Grand Rapids] for our Gatherings on Sundays.
Where do I park?
Because we will be worshiping in the parking lot during the month of May, we ask that you park on the street. Once we begin meeting inside, you can park in the parking lot.
What's there for my kids?
We aren't ready to open Mars Hill Kids quite yet so your littles are welcome to join us during the Gathering. Bring your favorite coloring crayons and be ready to make a joyful noise.
How long are your Gatherings?
We'll start worship at 5pm and services usually last around an hour.
Do you serve communion?
The Eucharist [communion] is celebrated every Sunday, usually following the Teaching. Individually wrapped wafers and juice [all gluten free] are available on self-serve tables.
