Medical data consulting professional and former clinical pharmacist Mary Pat Higley is a resident of Newport, California. An active member of the Mariners Church in Irvine, Mary Pat Higley volunteers her time with the church’s high school ministry.
The high school ministry at Mariners Church offers teenage students the opportunity to experience Christian fellowship with their peers in the form of life groups, weekend services, and special event outings. Life groups provide a comfortable atmosphere for groups of 10 to 15 students to study scriptures, discuss faith, and learn about the teachings of Jesus. Special event outings, such as attending Los Angeles Galaxy soccer games, present high school members of Mariners Church with the opportunity to socialize and bond.
Weekend worship services for high school students take place in Student Center Room 1 on Sundays at 11 a.m. Prospective student members who feel anxious about attending Sunday service for the first time can meet with Mariners Church high school ministry staff prior to the service to connect and feel comfortable joining in on worship.
