All along our life journey God calls us into spiritual and intellectual growth. In search of that growth, the Mayflower community engages in prayer, meditation, study, education, and discussion on a wide range of topics in classes, lectures, and ongoing Learning Communities.

Learning Communities

Contemporary Theologies

Summer schedule: Sundays, 8:45–9:45 am, Minnehaha Room
Contact: Linda Nelson, (952) 894-6145, or Karen Seashore
Our summer book is Unapologetic: Why, Despite Everything, Christianity Can Still Make Surprising Emotional Sense by Francis Spufford. “It gives you something to fill the uncomfortable conversational gap that sometimes occurs when you tell your secular friends that you go to church.” The process of sharing our responses to the text yields not only a learning experience but also community, fellowship and new connections for our faith journeys. Visitors and new participants are always welcome. Participants should get their own copy of the book.

Rediscovering the Bible: The Last Week & Women’s Spirituality

Will return in the fall!
