Mariners Group Fellowship



Mariners at St. Andrew's

The Mariner Fellowship is a tradition in the Presbyterian church and serves as a support for the church and the community.  Couples, singles and families form fellowship groups, or "ships."  The Mariner groups meet monthly.  Each meeting is an opportunity for fellowship, service, mission or outreach.  Groups vary in their programs and choices.  Some groups meet in homes, some at church, and some in local restaurants.  Many groups have a Bible study or discussion component.  The common denominator is Christian fellowship.

St. Andrew's has 8 Mariner fellowship groups with nearly 180 members.  A traditional service performed by Mariner groups is hosting coffee fellowship after worship.  Special projects taken on by Mariner groups include decorating the sanctuary for Christmas, painting Sunday School classrooms and other spaces, hosting the annual church ice-cream social, and service projects for Neighborhood House (community social services agency) and the West Women and Children's Shelter.

For St. Andrew's members who participate in a Mariner group, their "ship" means a lot to them.  They have a group of supportive and caring friends with which to weather life's storms.  Several ships are recruiting new people, or if you like, form a group with others you have met at St. Andrew's and create a new ship.  Contact Chuck or Becky White, or call the church office, if you are interested in starting or joining a Mariner fellowship.
