Mariner Sands is one of the few residential country clubs in Florida to feature an ecumenical community church on campus. With dynamic Protestant and Catholic congregations, the Chapel’s mission is to welcome everyone, serve others and build community. It is a vital part of community and spiritual life at Mariner Sands.

The Chapel offers Catholic and Protestant worship services, combined holiday services, a community library, art classes, and a multitude of educational events and concerts. It also offers its facilities and services to members and non-members for weddings, renewals of vows and baptisms.

Within Mariner Sands, the Chapel is a center for personal growth and service to others. Members have many roles at the church, and they volunteer at area charities providing educational services, health services, clothing, meals and counseling. Pastoral care and visitation services are provided to the community, and a Memorial Garden is available for inurnment to all Mariner Sands residents and their families.

The reading from Exodus 15:22-27
A.About life.

Life is a combination of the bitter and the sweet, triumphs and trials. If we are following God, however, we never need fear what comes our way. And after the trial there is often a spiritual “Elim” (v. 27) where God refreshes us. We must accept the bitter waters with the sweet, knowing that God knows what is best for us.

B.About themselves.

Life is a great laboratory, and each experience x-rays our hearts to reveal what we really are. The waters of Marah revealed that the people were worldly, thinking only of bodily satisfaction; they were walking by sight, expecting to be satisfied by the world; they were ungrateful, complaining to God when trials came their way.

C.About the Lord.

God knows the need because He plans the way. He used the tree (suggesting the cross, 1 Peter 2:24) to make the bitter waters sweet. He is Jehovah-Rapha, “The Lord Who Heals.”

Passing of the Peace

Now in Christ Jesus, we who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ, for He Himself is our peace. The peace of the Lord be with you always. Ephesians 2.13-14

Pastoral Prayer and The Lord’s Prayer

Scripture Reading 2 Corinthians 4:7-18
But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that his life may also be revealed in our mortal body. So then, death is at work in us, but life is at work in you. It is written: “I believed; therefore I have spoken.” Since we have that same spirit of faith, we also believe and therefore speak, because we know that the one who raised the Lord Jesus from the dead will also raise us with Jesus and present us with you to himself. All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God. Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. (NIV)
