MAYFLOWER: A BEACON OF HOPE
How are you finding gratitude this season?
"Even though I can't come to church in person,
this is what I am doing instead to feel God in my life..."

Reaching Out & Staying Connected 
Mayflower's "Friendly Visitors" try to stay in touch with our members,
especially during this time of COVID restrictions, often resulting in
establishing trust and a meaningful bond between the individuals involved.
Would you like to receive a call to chat about what is going on at church
and to have an opportunity to express your personal joys and concerns? 
We'd love to add your name to the list so we can give you a call from time to time.
Another caring ministry is sending cards to people on the prayer list. 
We often hear how much the recipients love getting the individually crafted cards letting them know the members of Mayflower are keeping them in their prayers. 
Please contact Murry Idema, 243-2764 or ridema58@gmail.com
to join in this ministry, create cards, or be added to the contact list.
One member on the Prayer List who had received several Care Cards over a period of time shared, "I always carry the latest one in my pocket every day."

Donations of
DIAPERS & BABY WIPES are being collected for Refugee Families on Christmas Eve during the Live Nativity Candlelight Trail outside Mayflower
on December 24th
from 5-6pm.
MAYFLOWER: A BEACON OF HOPE
Would you like to provide a meal for a member of our congregation?
Mayflower is also looking for someone to coordinate a meal sign-up/schedule for those interested in providing meals.

Money donations are also encouraged to provide safely prepared meals through our catering team.

Annual Stewardship 2021 Campaign
Thank you for your continued stewardship in treasure and faithful prayer.
Mayflower Family and Friends,

Please submit your pledge online or
by postal mail as soon as possible.

Council’s budget for 2021 is $985,000.
A balance of $800,000 remains solely dependent on membership pledges.

As of 12/15/20, we have received 149 pledges totaling $592k which is 74% of our total Covid-19 reduced budget. We have heard from only 30% of respondents.

To have a chance of staying relevant
in our community, we need to hear
from the 290 Mayflower
households we are missing. 

And to our Visitors, thank you for reaching out and joining us!
Have a Blessed and Safe Advent ~ Ken Goodson, Chair
