What's Sunday Like?

Whether you're going solo or coming with your family, there's a place for you here.

Troy Hatfield, Co-Lead Pastor


When you arrive at Mars Hill you’ll be greeted with the sound of music and the smell of delicious coffee. 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 about 75 minutes. All are welcome.

Mars Hill | Kids

Our kids programs are a fun and energetic place for growing friendships and building a foundation of faith that will last a lifetime. Program is offered for newborns all the way to 5th grade during the Gathering.


If you’re new or you’ve been here a time or two [or two hundred], here are some of the regular questions we get asked.

How long are your Gatherings?

Our Gatherings are usually 1 hour and 15 minutes.

What is there for my kids?

We offer programming for newborns through 5th grade in Grandville and Grand Rapids. Preschoolers and above will worship with parents during the Gathering and then head back to our Kids area for program. Mars Hill Students meets at our Grandville location at 4:30pm during the school year for Echo [Middle School] and Anthem [High School].

Do you serve communion?

The Eucharist [communion] is celebrated every Sunday, usually following the Teaching. Bread and juice [all gluten free] are available on self-serve tables.

When is baptism celebrated?

We have baptism gatherings two or three times a year, typically on Easter Sunday and a summer Sunday. A baptism class [required] is held a week or two prior to Baptism Sunday.

What are those wooden walls around the back of the Shed?

Those are prayer walls, built by our staff and volunteers, for the Mars Hill community to submit prayer requests in on Sunday mornings. The prayers are collected and prayed for by the staff during the week. You can also submit prayers and pray for our community using our virtual prayer wall [].

How do I get involved?

Follow us on Instagram and Facebook, come to our Welcome Center on a Sunday morning and talk to the friendly folks there about getting involved, look around on these website pages, or contact us directly at or 616-249-3337.

What if I have a quick question about the church?

Call us during regular business hours, 616-249-3337, or email us at and someone will get back to you within 24 hours.

Live Music. Live Teaching

Join us for weekly worship on Sunday at the beginning and end of each Gathering. Songs are led live by our in-house band and reflect a contemporary style. Feel free to sit, stand, or pray. We belong to something bigger than ourselves.
