People Care

The primary source of care and support for those who regularly attend Mariners is our LifeGroups.  But we also offer the help that’s listed below.  For most of these cases, the first contact will be the church office, which can be reached at (650) 726-5959 or

Support Groups: We understand there are some significant life experiences such as death and divorce which hurt deeply and require a bit more support navigate the pain. GriefShare is a 13-week seminar and support group to handle the death of a loved one. DivorceCare (coming soon) is a 13-week seminar and support group to handle the pain of divorce.

Baptism:  Baptism is an act of obedience that every Christian should take seriously, and a powerful means of grace in our lives.  We would love to coach you to understand and experience the full potential of this great response to our salvation.  Children, students and adults will each meet with the leaders in their respective ministries.

Sickness: The key support for you during your illness is designed to come from your LifeGroup. However, if you or someone you love at Mariners is experiencing a hospital stay or a chronic illness, we would like to know. Please remember the challenge in James 5:13-18 to call for the elders to pray.  We would love to do this for you at anytime.

Counseling: People often come to us for counsel on a financial crisis, marital and family conflict, grief, decision making, spiritual renewal and issues like these.  Contact the church office to set up an appointment at (650) 726-5959. We offer general pastoral counseling.  This is usually one session, after which we will recommend the next step. If the next step is professional Christian counseling, we recommend Christian Counseling Center at (650) 570-7273.

Financial Help: If you’re a part of the family of Mariners, we want to support you in a time of financial crisis.  If you contact the church office, they can put you in touch with the team who can help assess your need and offer various types of support.

Recovering From Addiction: In today’s world many people struggle with issues that they have a hard time overcoming alone.  If you struggle with an addiction of any kind, we want to see you experience the freedom that God has for you in Christ. Mariners hosts many of the local AA, Alanon, and OA groups in our community. While they do not fully embrace the transformation found through Jesus Christ, they are a good place to start and in conjunction with a LifeGroup is a dynamic plan for you to live sober.
