Benevolence

The Ecumenical Benevolence Committee (EBC) is comprised of Protestant and Catholic resident volunteers who guide the Chapel’s financial aid to small, well managed Christian charities in Martin County. These grants make a measurable difference for these charities as they help people in need of food, shelter, clothing, education, rehabilitation and health care.

Chapel Care Team


Our Chapel Care Team of resident volunteers provides assistance to Mariner Sands residents who need a hospital or home visit, as well as assistance with shopping and meals.

Music


Music is an important and integral part of our worship each Sunday. Under the direction of Amy Lou Brown with Dr. Tim Thompson at the organ or piano our Chapel is filled with a variety of musical offerings from classical works to modern praise. In addition to congregational hymns, Mariner Sands members fill our choral and bell choirs sharing their talents. Weekly rehearsals are a popular learning and social time!

Shawl Ministry


The Shawl Ministry meets year-round to knit and crochet shawls, lap robes, baby blankets, newborn hats and sweaters, and warm clothing for children in need.

Their labor of love produces over 500 items each year, which are delivered to local charities including Hospice, Christ Child Society, Hibiscus Children’s Center, Safe Space, St. Vincent de Paul and local nursing homes. Come join us!

White Dove


Each December the House of Hope, a local charity, distributes Christmas gifts to the children of needy Martin County families. Mariner Sands Chapel has lovingly supported this outreach since 1994 with our “White Dove Christmas for Kids” project. Residents are invited to stop by the Chapel, adopt a “White Dove” from our Christmas tree and purchase the gifts requested or support the project by making a financial donation.
