We encourage all our church members as they are able to be participate in our Life Group which meet on a weekly basis. We see these groups not only as a place where member can pray and study scripture together, but also share and listen to each other’s stories, extend pastoral care to one another, and seek to bless and love our community.
Our small groups at Marineview cycle through a monthly rhythm.
Most months the rhythm will be:
1st week: Upward
2nd week: Outward
3rd week: Upward
4th week: Inward
UPWARD: On upward weeks the focus will be on nurturing our relationship to God and others through spending time together doing things like bible study, and prayer.
OUTWARD: On outward weeks, our focus will be on seeking ways to love our neighbours, and be a blessing to the neighbourhood, either in the vicinity of the church or the location of the small groups. On this week, a group might get together to visit a senior’s home, do some cleaning in the neighbourhood, write some thank you letters, gather and pray for the neighbourhood, or help out at a soup kitchen etc. Occasionally, a small group might use this week to care for neighbours overseas, and write encouragement letter to missionaries, or engage in a long-distance project.
INWARD: On inward weeks, our small groups will take time to hear each others stories. On this week of the month, two members of the small group will have an opportunity to share for 20-30 minutes uninterrupted. They are welcome to share an overview of their story or some other occasion they choose, like something they have been going through in the last 6 months or couple years. The time will end by group members praying for those who have shared.

Sharing the resources which God has entrusted to us is part of faithful Christian living. Regular donations help us to better meet our ongoing ministry commitments.

We are also able to receive donations online through CanadaHelps.org. This method is helpful for people who don't use cheques, or donors who wish to set up regular automatic donations. CanadaHelps.org issues tax receipts immediately to the donor.
Please note that 3.9% of donations made through CanadaHelps.org remains with your credit card company. For example, a $100 donation will result in $96.10 being received by Marineview Chapel. For this reason, we suggest that larger, one-time donations still be made directly by cheque.
