To be a part of Grace Marin is to be known, connected and cared for whether you are two or 92. The best way to form relationships is to join a community group, serve in a ministry alongside others, and find opportunities to talk regularly with your friends about what the gospel means to you.

Here are our fall groups; contact Pastor John if you'd like to learn more about joining.

Meets two Suday's a month at the Barosko's home from 4:30-6:30 PM. Share a potluck meal and then enjoy a disucssion of Jesus' parables in the gopsel of Luke using Eugene Peterson's book Tell it Slant. Childcare is provided. Upcoming dates include Oct 7, 21, Nov 4, 19, Dec 9. Contact Ken Sanders for more info or to join.

We are starting a new Community Group that is open to anyone, but centrally located and family friendly. As we meet with God and one another for study, prayer and community, good things tend to happen. The bible calls this transformation!

Meets at the Hoffman's home twice a month from 4:00-6:00 PM. This group is meant to be a place of deeper connection through sharing a meal, study of the Bible, prayer, fellowship and service. It is open to newcomers and family friendly. This fall the group is using disucssion questions from Sunday's sermons to guide study. Fall dates are Sep 23, Oct 7, 21, Nov 4, 18, Dec 2, 16. Contact Andrew Hoffman for more info and to join.


Discipleship Groups are same-gender groups of three to four people who commit to meet regularly to intentionally foster spiritual growth and the application of the gospel to all of life through connection, support and accountability.  Each group is led by a lay-leader who has participated in a group previously and is accountible to and supported by the pastoral staff.  If you would like to hear more or join a group, contact John Sweet.

Join the men of Grace Marin for a fantastic breakfast and an opportunity to dig deeper into friendship and the challenges and joys of following Jesus as men in Marin.  Pastor Rod likes to bring in guest facilitators from time to time, but regardless, these mornings always prove to be rich and encouraging.
