spring/summer 2009



to Mariners Church Thanks for joining us today at Mariners. W@M, the publication you are holding, is a window into who we are and what we are about at Mariners. Our hope is you'll get an idea of where you belong here and you'll find ways to make a connection with God and with the people of Mariners Church. To get the most up-to-date info on what's happening around here, visit the Welcome Center on the patio or go to This next season at Mariners is an exciting one. After many years of planning and construction, we have finished our campus expansion. We now get to utilize God's blessings to their fullest to be a resource to our church family and our community. Students are coming for the first time and tearing it up in the Student Center. Worship services and weddings are being planned in the Chapel. The Lake causes us to stop and reflect on God's place in our lives. On the whole, the campus feels like a refuge from the pace of daily life. It's a place where we can slow down and listen to God's voice. We hope you will find a home here. Welcome to Mariners Church. We're glad you came. Grace and Truth,

spring/summer 2009

We believe it is vital to experience Jesus in community, be transformed and be used by Him to change the world around us. To that end, Mariners has weekend services designed to lead every person to a life-changing encounter with God. Combining music and media with compelling biblical teaching, we tell God’s story and invite people to respond with us. It’s simply a gathering to adjust our perspective and to recalibrate our hearts and lives, remembering who God is and who we are in light of Jesus.




Our new Chapel is a spiritual place where God can capture our hearts, speak to us through His still, small voice, and remind us of His presence in our lives. The Chapel is a place of refuge from the noise of life, offering those who enter the chance to reflect on God's place in their lives. The building is a beautiful inspiration and testament of our community's faithfulness to God, an understanding of who God is, and our relationship with Him. Our desire is that the Chapel will serve as a place for you to grow closer to God and repsond to Him in unique and life-changing ways. Chapel hours:

When you volunteer on campus, you make a big church feel a little smaller. You build relationships with those you're serving with and get to know a group of people who share your passions and interests. You can volunteer at Port Mariners, Student Ministries, the Welcome Center, or at all-church events, just to name a few opportunities. If you have an interest, we'll find a place for you to serve. Ty Woolworth x209

guest relations Helping people feel glad they're here. Guest Relations creates that first impression you get when you come to Mariners Church. If you would like to be part of the team that welcomes our church family, we have opportunities for you. You can work with ushers, greeters, parking pastors, shuttle drivers, the first aid team, interpreters for the deaf, or the hospitality team. "A cheerful look brings joy to the heart." Proverbs 15:30 Pastor Bob Brogger x320





People are available to pray with you after each service in the front of the Worship Center. Or, if you seek physical, emotional or spiritual healing, visit the Prayer Room after each service to be anointed with oil by an elder according to Scripture (James 5:14). The Prayer Room is just off the center entrance of the Worship Center. If you would like to volunteer with the Prayer Ministry, please contact Pastor Bob Brogger, x320. prayer hotline

generations Reaching our community, generation after generation As we look at our completed campus, we can see that each space tells a story of God's generosity and provision. He has given us this campus to grow closer to one another and to Him. We've created our campus for you to feel at home. Our hope is that you enjoy this space to its fullest. Enjoy a worship service at one of our venues, have a meal in the CafĂŠ, and play on the lawn with your kids. Spend the day here with your church family. This is a place of community, connection and relationships.






We are thankful for God's Vision for Mariners Church and all who have come to call this "home." Through over 4,000 individuals and families who have given sacrificially since 2000, our expanded campus is complete with dedicated ministry space for Worship, Prayer, Kids, and Students. The Student Center, Chapel, and Lake are wonderful blessings from God, defining our campus more than ever before as a spiritual place to build personal relationships with Christ for "generations" to come.

We are grateful to all who have prayed and continue to give to make this all possible. Because of you, Mariners Church can continue to use this space and create defining moments that will change lives forever.
