Welcome to Circle of Mercy
Circle of Mercy is a welcoming, inclusive, and celebrative community of believers. We are committed to spiritual formation that nurtures prayerful discernment, invites compassionate service, and prompts prophetic action. We believe that turning to God also means turning to the world—especially to its broken places—as agents of healing and hope.
We are moving to a new location on July 31!
On Sunday, July 31 we will be moving to 15 Overbrook Place, Asheville, NC 28805 (in East Asheville). We will be sharing space with our sister congregration, Land of the Sky United Church of Christ. Our worship services will continue to meet at 5:00 p.m. on Sunday evenings. There will be a potluck meal following worship on Sunday, July 31.
