During our shelter-in-place, all groups are using virtual connection tools; ZOOM, Google Hangouts, or phone conferences.

Take a look at all the active groups and request to join one that seems of interest to you! After providing a bit of information an email will be sent to the group leader.  They should contact you, but please be patient as everybody manages emails differently.  Should you not get contacted in what you feel is an appropriate time, please reach out to Pastor Len.  It’s our hearts desire that everyone find community in a LifeGroup at Mariners.

Let’s face it, when we open our lives to experience church we want to get to know people and have a sense of belonging.  Whether you’ve been attending in person gatherings or experiencing Mariners online, your next step is to engage with people. At Mariners, we think LifeGroups are the place to really develop that sense of belonging. But we also believe a lot more happens in LifeGroups.  We believe they are the primary vehicles through which sustained transformation to be more like Jesus in and among the world happens.

Here are just a few reasons why we’re so committed to seeing everyone in a LifeGroup, either digitally or in person:

  • They’re a great way to really get to know people and experience authentic, caring relationships
  • They’re a good way to meet social, emotional, physical and spiritual needs
  • LifeGroups provide the best environment for the life change that God intends for every person.

Jesus modeled LifeGroups
“He appointed twelve ….that they might be with him” Mark 3:14

The Bible teaches LifeGroups
“Everyday they continued to meet together. …they broke bread in their homes…praising God…” 
Acts 2:46-47

ways you can connect

  • You can contact the LifeGroup Pastor
  • You can start your own group. Sometimes the best group for you is the group you start.  Grab a few of your friends who want to join you on a journey to grow in faith by discussing God’s Word, praying for each other and encouraging authentic application in your lives. We will resource and coach you for success!
  • Check out our available groups.  If you don’t see anything that fits your needs, connect with us to see how we can create the right group for you.
  • You can be invited. Most LifeGroups are open and you may be invited to join and become a vital part of the life of the group.

Many of our LifeGroups use a series of methods to learn from the Bible and apply to their lives. These are also very useful in personal quiet times with God’s Word. Click to learn more.
