“With strings, yes, with the lyre,
With voices praise the sovereign God,
A lusty, joyous choir.

—Psalm 98

Fun Facts

The sanctuary organ is a tracker-action instrument constructed by Charles Hendrickson in St. Peter, Minnesota, and installed in Mayflower in 1988. Members designed the carved wooden boats on the organ.

The New Century Hymnal, the hymnal of the United Church of Christ, is used in Mayflower worship. A favorite collection of hymns by Mayflower member Marty Haugen is also an important part of our hymnody.
