Worship

Welcome to worship at Mayflower Community Congregational United Church of Christ.

We recognize that faith is a journey rather than a doctrine.

Coming from diverse backgrounds, we are united in our quest for spiritual and intellectual growth, and in putting our faith into practice through our actions.

Music, prayer, scriptures, and preaching are important parts of our worship, giving breadth, depth, and direction to our spiritual development on the Jesus path. In our services, you will hear inclusive language that honors many ways of understanding and naming God. Members are encouraged to participate in the leadership of worship and in creating a sacred environment for worship through art.

Celebration of the Sacraments

We celebrate two sacraments: Baptism and Holy Communion (Eucharist), both of which are available to all regardless of age. Holy communion (or Eucharist) is celebrated on the first Sunday of each month.

Communion Traditions for All Ages

On the first Sunday of each month, we celebrate Communion and incorporate intergenerational worship leadership. Our worship is greatly enriched by young voices leading us in gathering litanies, offering wise and inspiring words during the invitation to generosity, and offering the bread and the cup at Communion. Together, we experience the stories in the Bible that highlight Christ’s community of people who feed one another, and feed our neighbors.

We also ask families, those with young children in particular, to bring nonperishable grocery items to place in a basket at the foot of the Communion altar during the offering on this first Sunday. All food is donated to the VEAP food shelf. If you have a child or youth who would like to get involved with reading, serving Communion, or ushering, contact Director of Faith Formation Eli’jah Carroll.
