We want to be wise stewards of all that God has so generously provided us – as individuals, as families, and as a church. As we re-purpose the Community Resource Center to more intentionally serve the needs of our community, ask, “Lord, what do you want me/us to give to help fulfill your will to meet the needs of people in our growing and changing community?”
Your verse of the day resumes tomorrow! One week left!
We live in a multi-cultural world and a diverse community. Pray that as Mariners Church we will sacrificially love the immigrant and the refugee – as image-bearers of God – giving of our abundance and advocacy to serve the needs of those whose language we may not speak and whose skin color and customs might be different than our own.
Romans 8 says that all creation “groans,” waiting for God’s ultimate restoration. The brokenness in the world can feel overwhelming; individuals, families, unwanted children, abuse. God longs to heal, creating new opportunities and the resources to move forward. Pray for our community to open their hearts to God’s love for them.
Every day, people come to our church seeking refuge – discouraged, wounded, afraid, weary, and living without purpose. Pray that we, as Mariners Church, can bring comfort, provide basic necessities, and be the place where people with needs can find hope.
BEYOND is the next chapter in the story God is writing in and through Mariners Church. It’s our opportunity to create a clear front door to our community! Our desire is that Mariners would become a vital resource to those around us – a place of inclusion where physical, emotional and everyday needs of people can be met and the rich diversity of our community is reflected in our ministries. We have the opportunity to be a catalyst in bridging the generations, cultures, and socio-economic gaps in our community through relational connection and being a light in the community.
There are a couple ways you can get up to speed in a hurry.
