Here are some updates to what Mariners is doing to connect with others during this time of shelter-in-place.
It seems clear to us that this time is going to be extended beyond April 7. Should it end sooner we will be ready to welcome people back in, but for now we are making arrangements to keep all our experiences online through the end of April.
ADDING SUNDAY SERVICE TIMES:
The interactive platform we are using is wonderful and we want to make the ‘lobby’ (chat stream) a very social place. So now you can go online at the same times you went to church normally. Please join us on Sunday at 9:15 or 10:45 for an online interactive worship service at https://marinershmb.online.church
! And of course you can watch any time at our YouTube channel, www.YouTube.com/MarinersHMB
We have added the tagline, Community Without Walls
, to our online service promotions reminding us all that the lack of building will not stop why we exist.
EASTER SUNDAY ONLINE:
Celebrate Easter Sunday with us online. We will be posting them online for you to watch in two ways/locations. Join us at https://marinershmb.online.church
on Sunday at 9:15, 10:30 or 11:45 am to worship together! We have a full service. It will be interactive with live chat. Also, watch the service at any time on our YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/MarinersHMB
EVENTS UPDATES: The Women’s Tea is is officially postponed. Even if we are allowed to gather again, late in April, we feel it necessary to wait for this event until gatherings are clearly more safe. We will announce a new date when we have a more clear picture of when gatherings can be done. For now the GriefShare Care Groups, Global 6k and Mexico trip are unaffected but we are reviewing their viability.
