Join a Group

“Let us consider one another in order to provoke love and good works, not neglecting to gather together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging each other, and all the more as you see the day approaching.”

Hebrews 10:24-25

We were created to be in relationship, not only with God, but with one another. When we gather and grow in our faith together, we experience life as God intended–in community.  Spiritual transformation happens best when we join an authentic and caring group, centered on Scripture, where we can acknowledge our true brokenness and seek healing and transformation that can only come from God.

View our groups below to begin your journey in community.

Finding lasting community at Mariners begins with Rooted.


Rooted is a 10-week small group experience designed to connect you to God, the church, and your purpose. Together, in a group of 10-15 people from all walks of life, you’ll explore the Bible, engage in prayer and serve experiences, share stories, and practice rhythms essential to a healthy spiritual life. These spiritual rhythms aren’t new, or something the church recently created, every one of them is found in Acts 2 where the early church began. We will provide you with a facilitator who is trained to come alongside your group to help you get the most out of the experience. Rooted is available 3 times a year, in January, April and September.

Do I need to attend Rooted before Joining a Life Group?

Yes. When we create groups for Rooted, we always intend for that group to become an ongoing life group as you collectively build a solid foundation of biblical community and connection.

What do Life Groups do?

Life Groups meet regularly, in homes, coffee shops, parks and anywhere in-between to study God’s word, primarily through our weekly sermon discussion questions, practice the same spiritual rhythms experienced through Rooted, and change the world through outreach.

How often do Life Groups meet?

Life Groups tend to meet either weekly or bi-weekly on different days and times. Most groups meet for 10 weeks at a time with breaks built in throughout the year.

What if I’ve been through Rooted and need help joining a new Life Group?

From our Group Finder, Life Group Connect events, and our Start a Group option, we’ve got you covered to jump back into a Life Group. Learn more above.

What resources do you offer for Life Group Leaders?

Quite a bit! From weekly leader emails, podcasts, group content, coaching and quarterly Leader Gatherings, our team is committed to equipping leaders to shepherd well. Email our team if you are a leader looking for resources and support.
