Mother’s Day Outreach Project

This Mother’s Day we are honoring mothers who are in crisis and seeking shelter at the YWCA’s Sojourner House by blessing these women with “welcome bags” upon their arrival. Mayflower members and friends are invited to fill a gift bag or basket with the following items and drop them off at church (on the table in the narthex) by May 13:

  • Journal and pen
  • Scented lotion
  • Full size shampoo and conditioner
  • Shower gel
  • Encouraging note

Mayflower’s outreach initiatives include local projects as well as global partners. This year Mayflower is pleased to highlight partnerships with these excellent organizations:

Baxter Community Center
Degage Ministries
Eden Ministries
Family Promise/Partners in Housing
Habitat for Humanity
Kids’ Food Basket
Salvation Army
St. John’s Home


From GRPS uniforms to a water well in Zimbabwe, from a newly surfaced basketball court at St. John’s Home to extended hours at the Baxter Community Center Market — the Outreach Committee disbursed 15% of Mayflower Congregational Church’s annual budget to support 20+ local and international ministries this year.
