Dear Mayflower Members and Friends,
 
I trust you are well and enjoying our lovely summer weather! Below is some brief news regarding our life together as a congregation.
 
1.    Farewell on the Front Steps:  Lynn and I would like to personally thank everyone who has been a part of the mission and ministry of Mayflower these past 15 years. To facilitate that, in the age of COVID, we invite you to drive by the front steps of the church (by the columns) to share a social distanced hug while we express our heartfelt gratitude. The times are as follows:
            i.    June 15, 11:00am - 12:00pm
           ii.    June 16, 6:00 - 7:30pm
          iii.    June 17, 6:00 - 7:30pm
2.   Mayflower Rocks!  The FFJ Christian Education Team at Mayflower has begun the summer program of Mayflower Rocks! Throughout each week families will learn about the different ways God uses rocks to remind us of His strength and faithfulness through videos on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. Paint some rocks this weekend and bring them to the church lawn to grow our Rock Garden!
3.    Mayflower Music:  Mayflower Music posts new videos each week, featuring talent from our choirs and staff. Vocal, instrumental, solos and ensembles are posted, with music for healing, comfort, hope and connection. These can be found on the church’s YouTube channel and Facebook page . We invite you to subscribe to the YouTube channel to receive notifications as soon as a new video is live. If you’re on Facebook, we invite you to LIKE and SHARE the posts and videos – this increases Mayflower’s visibility in the virtual world.
 
4.    Mayflower Outreach:  We had a successful collection for our friends at New City Kids, providing items for their “Summer Camp in a Box”. We would like to continue our effort by collecting snacks for them to use this summer and throughout the year. Please choose anything from the following list and drop off to church on Monday, June 22 between 10am-12pm . Thank you!
