Community Church Partnerships:
- Mercy Community Church is a small organic, community church that started in 2005. It is a church on a mission, a place where people living on the margins are nurtured as God’s children with special attention paid to their emotional and spiritual needs. Our goal is to make a difference in our communities, to show through our love, rolled up sleeves, and open table. We seek to show an authentic love for our neighbor – no hype, no hidden agendas. All are truly welcome! www.mercyonline.net.
Called to be a neighborhood, parish-model church, Redeemer longs for our church to be made up of friends and neighbors that we see on an everyday basis. We want the family of Redeemer to not simply come together on Sunday to worship, but to spend time with one another throughout the week, while encouraging one another in our daily call to live as people who are loved by Jesus. Drew Henley is the Sr. Pastor. www.redeemeratl.org.
Drake House - This is a homeless shelter in Roswell. Because it is an apartment complex, entire families may stay together. The apartment complex is located near grocery stores and MARTA lines. The apartments are sponsored by various local organizations.

All activities need your participation. You do not have to be "in charge," unless you would like to be. Come work with us...we laugh a lot...and we always have a good time. You may get some hugs that you weren't expecting...you may also change your own life. I know that you will change other lives. Step out of your comfort zone...you will love it, WE Promise!!!
**Most all activities are "kid-friendly." What better way to introduce your child to their church family and to God's world of helping others?**
