Rooted: Across All Congregations

We would love to have you join us and witness firsthand the transformational work God does through Rooted. We offer Rooted 3 different times a year for 10 weeks. It is an opportunity to walk alongside those who are discovering or rediscovering who God is—getting to help ask questions and walk alongside the transformational work that God is doing in the hearts of His people.

I Believe Baptisms and Extended Prayer Weekends- Across All Congregations

We have the opportunity to stand together with our church as we pray over and celebrate all that God is doing in and through the people of Mariners. Our I Believe and Extended Prayer weekends are when we respond to the needs of our church by praying over those who come forward during service.

Child Dedications

We believe that Child Dedication is such an important moment for our families and an opportunity to celebrate and partner with our church in loving, leading, and launching fearless, world-changing kids. Your involvement in this experience makes everything very personal; creating an intentional environment that will inspire courageous decisions for families to put God in the center of their homes.

As a Child Dedication prayer leader, you’ll create opportunities for parents/caregivers to hear words of encouragement and blessing that will challenge them for years to come by coming alongside them in discussion and prayer.

We would LOVE to invite you to be a part of our Child Dedication ceremonies. These dedications are a beautiful experience for parents and families to dedicate their children to the Lord, and we truly couldn’t do it without you.

If you have questions please email Adrine Starr [email protected].
