A new year is approaching, and it’s about time we gather to celebrate our MCS community and countless blessings. Featuring a night of love, appreciation, laughter, giving, dancing, and memory making.
Tuesday, February 25 | 6:30pm in the Argyros Center for Worship and Performing Arts
We see it everywhere: at parks, restaurants, in our homes and cars – kids connected to handheld devices and disconnected from the world around them. Our common sense says this cannot be healthy, yet we struggle to know how much is too much and set practical limits. The news tells us that teen stress, depression and mental illness are at an all-time high. Have you wondered if there is a connection?
Mariners Christian School is proud to present author and expert, Tom Kersting, for a night of learning How to Parent in the Age of Technology. Armed with the latest scientific research, Tom will present tips and tactics on how to help our children disconnect in order to reconnect with relationships and the world around them.
Come join us for a night of education and training in:
- The connection between technology use and mental health, backed by the most current scientific data
- Strategies for creating a balance with technology in our lives
- Ways to develop social-emotional health in our children
- Our role as parents to understand the impact of technology and better support our children.
This is too important of a topic to miss! This event is open to all MCS parents and friends of the MCS community.

Hey, Jack Somers here! So much has happened since I graduated MCS; here are some highlights!
I started my freshman year of college in the fall of 2019! I am currently pursuing a degree in architecture and a minor in business at the University of Utah. Salt Lake City is the perfect place for me. There is an incredible amount of things to see and do within close proximity of the university: skiing in the Cottonwood Canyons, exploring the city, hiking in Park City to name a few of my favorite activities.
I launched a small startup called Bluepixel in June of 2019! I do graphic design work for clients who are either launching or rebranding their businesses. Web and UI design, logo design, product shoots, and brand development are the primary services I offer to my clients!
But most importantly, I have rediscovered the unending love, grace, mercy, and faithfulness Christ shows me on a daily basis. Part of the reason why I chose to go to school in Utah is because of the natural surroundings. I find His presence more eminent in the mountains than anywhere else I have been. I am so grateful for my relationship with God for where it is at right now, despite its ups and downs.
