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. 

There are several types of groups. This strategy will help inform who should attend what type of group, and when.

Rooted

 

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.

For more information, check out our FAQs or email us at [email protected].

Deep Dive

Deep Dive logo

Join our teaching team as we dive into a weekly study of God’s Word to help us grow closer to God and deepen our faith.

Below, you will find three courses which all contain a virtual teaching component and a group discussion component. Rooted graduates are invited to take whatever course they’d like, in any order. Anyone who has not completed Rooted is invited to participate in “The Reason for God” course. We look forward to diving into God’s Word together!

Deep Dive: The Reason for God
In this six-week study based on Timothy Keller’s The Reason for God, you’ll be equipped to engage in thoughtful conversations with others about difficult questions, develop a greater understanding of the compelling evidence for belief, and form a foundation for deeper, richer faith.

Deep Dive: The Story of God
In this eight-week study, you’ll discover there is no greater hero, no greater conflict, no greater rescue, and no greater ending than what you’ll find in the unfolding story of God and how you have been written into His story.

Deep Dive: The Image of God
In this seven-week study, you’ll explore the image of God reflected in every person on Earth, and learn how it should inform our posture and practices toward others, lead us into greater love for our neighbor, and enrich our care for the rest of creation.

Care & Recovery Groups

Existing as an extension of our Community Life team, Care and Recovery is a unique part of our church that comes alongside those who are hurting and in need of specialized care. When we help people find a group in this ministry, “care” is designed for those struggling with grief, divorce, abortion, and others; “recovery” is intended for those wrestling with addictions.

Life Groups

When we create groups for Rooted, we always intend for that group to become an ongoing life group. But there are people who have been through Rooted and are not currently in a life group. It is our desire to help these people find a new life group without having to go through Rooted again.
