Christmas at Mariners

Christmas is more than just a holiday – it is not a celebration of the past. Christmas acknowledges a God who is present here and now. Jesus is the hope of the world. Christmas is the promise of God with us.

Sat, Dec 24: 3 & 5p

Celebrate Differently

During the Christmas season, we celebrate how God saw us when we were far off and sent us the greatest gift; His Son Jesus. This Gift of love compels us to love and care for the poor and marginalized among us. As a church we are committed to caring for the thousands of people in our community experiencing poverty and crisis this season.
