Mayflower's approach to education and youth programs is gentle and non-fundamentalist, operating on the principle that we are all instinctively spiritual. In this spirit, we invite and encourage a diversity of thoughts, ideas, and programs.
Sunday School for all ages is from 10-10:50am. Descriptions of each adult Sunday School class as well as Children's Sunday School can be found using the tabs on the left. The Youth Group meets for Sunday School upstairs in Rev. Walke's Study.
Children 3 years and under are cared for by paid childcare staff in the nursery and young child room at the north end of the Christian Education wing. The nursery and young child room are staffed from 8:45am-12:15pm.
Classes and Lectures
Mayflower offers classes and lectures presented by our clergy and lay leaders throughout the year.
First & Second Service Kids
Just as Jesus welcomed children, Mayflower welcomes children in worship. In doing so, children become familiar with the rhythms of the sanctuary and know they belong in the gathered community. Students in kindergarten through 5th grade (ages 3-5 not yet in Kindergarten are in the Pre-K class) participate in worship until just before the offering. They then move from the sanctuary into Milligan Hall for a dedicated time to explore, learn, and grow spiritually. Activities rotate on a weekly basis and include story-telling, chapel, art, cooking, science, and connecting with the church and broader community through acts of service.
