Alcohol (including wine or champagne for toasts) is not allowed on campus. Receptions may not take place in the Upper Room during the Saturday evening services. Indoor receptions include 60 inch round tables, chairs, 8-foot rectangular tables for food service and 1 AV Tech. You must rent tables and chairs for outdoor patio/grass area receptions. Audio/visual, catering, decorating, etc. are additional fees. Your reservation is for the Upper Room only.

Marriages held at Mariners Church must be performed by one of our Mariners Church pastors. You will need to make arrangements directly with the pastor you choose. Each pastor manages his/her own calendar. Pastor Kenton Beshore does not perform wedding ceremonies.
