and hope the following information is helpful!
Mayflower is a growing, inclusive congregation of active, community-focused familes and individuals. These members come from from a wide variety of Christian backgrounds as well as many who have not previously belonged to a church community. What we hold in common is a steadfast commitment to live out Jesus’ Great Commandment and to seek unity as a body of believers.
Mayflower’s mission as a congregation is to fulfill Jesus’ Great Commandment that as individuals and a church family we seek to love God, and our neighbor as ourselves.
As we seek to realize that mission we recognize that faith is a journey, God is good, Jesus saves, and the Spirit leads us towards faith, hope and love as we honor the dignity of all God’s people.
We begin at 10:30 a.m.
Worship is a warm, traditional, and intergenerational service at 10:30am on Sunday mornings. The sermon is grounded in scripture and addresses how faith can be expressed in our daily lives. Our Teller-Lauck pipe organ and accompanying choir program with 250 adult and children participants lead our worship services. A service lasts about one hour, after which we gather for a time of fellowship with coffee and treats in our Atrium.
Yes. There is also an accessible restroom beside the sanctuary.
Over 250 families participate in Mayflower’s programs. One of these programs is MIDWEEK on Wednesdays where we gather for a meal, participate in our Mayflower Academy, and children 3 yrs through 5th grade sing in our children’s choir program. Families also enjoy our 29UP fellowship group as well as events that take advantage of the beauty of West Michigan.
Our nursery, located across from our main church offices, opens at 10:00 am before the worship service begins. Paid trained staff members who have undergone background checks will care for the children. Information sheets are kept on each child stating allergies and special instructions. Parents receive pagers to take into the service to be alerted if needed.
Following the Children’s Message, we are pleased to lead children from worship to Sunday school for age-appropriate lessons taught in the Youth Rooms on the lower level.
Children are grouped by age or grade: 4 years old to kindergarten; 1st-4th graders; and 5th grade for Bridge.
Mayflower offers 9 different interactive Bible Study groups throughout the week for adults to grow in faith and deepen their spiritual lives. The groups are welcoming to visitors and new members.
Mayflower is committed to loving our neighbor as Jesus commanded. We seek to make an impact in our community, country, and world by supporting numerous ministries and initiatives addressing issues of injustice and inequality.
Mayflower designated 15% of its 2021 annual receipts – over $135,000 – towards this years’ Outreach giving. Mayflower also commits generous volunteer hours to express our faith in word and deed.
