Life Groups

Life Groups @ Mariners


Life is meant to be lived in circles, not rows.

Life groups consist of 5-15 Rooted graduates who meet on a regular basis, looking to connect in authentic relationships, to deepen their faith and impact the world around them with the Love of Jesus.

We want to be in community, for the community. Life Groups provide care and support for each other while growing you’re your knowledge of Christ and sharing that with the communities around you. What we experience in community; freedom and healing, we live out for community so that others can encounter salvation, freedom and healing.

Get connected in a Life Group

To join a Life group this summer: For Mens, Womens, 30-50 Singles and Couples.

Rooted is our on-boarding process to the Mariners Church Community. We care deeply about becoming rooted in Christ together with others in our church community. Most of our Rooted groups become Life Groups so it’s a great first step!

If you have been through Rooted and don’t have a Life Group, or missed the Rooted Registration, you are invited to join a Series Group. These groups are formed around a particular all church initiative, teaching series and/or curriculum. Series Groups typically run for 8 weeks and can turn into Life Groups. We are committed to help those who aren’t connected find a place they can belong. Series Groups are a great way to jump into intentional community.

There are Life Groups with available openings. Use the Life Group Finder button below to get connected.

Group Leader Resources

Flow Questions: These sermon based questions are created to equip you to dig deeper into God’s word. They can be used around a dinner table, as part of your morning study, or in discussion as your life group grows closer in relationship and more connected to your community. Look down. Look out. Look in. Live it out.

RightNow Media is a video library that we offer to Life Group Leaders as a resource for their groups. To get signed up please contact us:
