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. Newcomers are always welcome!

Learning Communities

Contemporary Theologies

Sundays, 9:00 am, via Zoom
Our learning community concentrates on theology books (both Christian and non-Christian) written at a layperson’s level. We read each chosen book in small bites, in advance of weekly discussions. 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. Mid-book newcomers are just fine! Contact Bob Power ( for the Zoom link and for book information.

Women’s Spirituality

Sundays, 9:45 am
Women’s Spirituality provides space for deep engagement with other women. They celebrate the festivals of the Wheel of the Year and explore the feminine face of God. They regularly read from “Pocketful of Miracles,” check in regarding a spiritual question and meditate together. Depending on the current status of COVID, in-person and/or Zoom meetings are available. Contact Connie Ford at for more information.

Centering Prayer

Mondays at 6:30 pm on Zoom
Do you like to sit in silent prayer or meditation with others? Come and join others in doing Centering Prayer at Mayflower. We’ll begin with some Psalms for praying, sit for 20 minutes in silence and close with the Lord’s Prayer. RSVP to Cate Calkins to receive the Zoom invite.

Rediscovering the Bible

Sundays, 9:00 am via Zoom
All are welcome to join us as we discuss the Bible. Meeting hosted by Jeff Richards. If you are not already on the mailing list request a link from
