WHO WE ARE
Pastors Matt & Carrie Erikson are the lead pastors of Mercy City Church in Lincoln, NE. In partnership with ARC, they planted Mercy City in February of 2015 after moving to Nebraska just 7 months earlier. Starting with a handful of people who showed interest in a new church, God has quickly grown Mercy City to a thriving community who sees hundreds worship together each weekend.
Matt and Carrie have heart for Lincoln and to see its people connect to the heart of God and to the house of God. They believe that this will be done by sharing the message of Jesus Christ in a fresh and relevant way. Doing church in a way that help people see that, we ARE THE CHURCH. Making a difference in our everyday lives, everywhere we are.
They share a vision for Mercy City, where Everyone. Always. Belongs. Also, where the reach of the church goes beyond its four walls into the city that God has placed them in, as well as around the world.
Matt & Carrie have four AMAZING children; Cooper (12), Eli (10), Emery (10), and Lilah Jane (5). As a family, they love spending time being active, mostly baseball/softball and bike rides (LJ is still learning). Ultimately they just LOVE their city and all things Husker related. They’re excited to see what God will continue to do.
