At Mayflower, all are welcome to worship together. Young children are encouraged to participate fully with their families—to learn the stories of our faith and to experience the sacred rituals that nurture our life together.
During the pandemic, children’s corner worship materials are available for children that is distributed via email weekly, along with other information helpful for children, youth, and families. If you would like to be added to this email list, please reach out to Interim Director of Faith Formation Bree McKee-Miller, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Activity bags, children’s bibles and books are located along the back wall of the Sanctuary (please do not leave a child unattended in this area during worship).
The Narthex, just outside the Sanctuary doors, is part of our worship space. Families with restless children may move about more freely in this space while still worshipping together.
The Parent Resource Room (room 100) is available for parents who need a quiet space to nurse, soothe a child, or spend a few moments apart from Sunday morning activities. The room is furnished with rocking chairs and equipped with overhead speakers, so that parents can hear the worship services while in this space.
Mayflower has choirs for ages 7 through high school. Learn more

6th and 7th grade girls from the Mayflower community and nearby neighborhood gather for activities, outings and “take action” projects that teach cooperation, teamwork, leadership, financial literacy and the value of community service. Girls meet one evening per month September–May. Contact: Emily Christie.
Cub Scouts (all genders ages 5–10) meet at Mayflower every other Monday evening. For older youth (all genders ages 10-18), Troop 187 meets every Monday evening during the school year. These are among the oldest and strongest scouting programs in the Twin Cities. Boy Scouts of America granted Mayflower Church its first troop charter in 1929.
Camping is the heart of our scouting programs and monthly campouts give youth a taste of the great outdoors in all seasons, providing opportunities to learn about teamwork, self-discipline and leadership. Mayflower’s Troop operates its own 120-acre facility, Camp St. Croix, using it for winter campouts, a two-week summer camp, and other scouting activities throughout the year. Parents play an essential role in the program.
