Pastoral Care

Care Ministries

Our Pastor and Care Pastors provide care for our members and family in times of need. When contacted, the Pastor or Care Pastors can visit those who are hospitalized, in rehabilitation or who need support during critical times. If you are at a time in your life when you could use extra care, please contact our office at 239-775-0055.


Care Pastors

Care Pastors are members of the church who care about others, and help by being present, listening, encouraging, sympathizing and praying with those to whom they minister. They have received special training for their position. Care Pastors have an ethical and legal responsibility to maintain confidentiality.
Care Pastors visit and make phone calls to their care receivers on a regular basis. They also send cards to care receivers and other members of the congregation. If you would like to become part of this team, please contact the Pastor at 239-775-0055.


Prayer Team

The Prayer Team has been an important ministry of Mayflower since our church was formed.  At that time prayer requests were passed to members by phone.  Then Pastor Alan notified members of prayer requests by email.  This has since become the responsibility of the Care Pastors.  Members pray daily for individuals, organizations, and others. 

The Prayer Team has started meeting every two weeks in the Sanctuary at 10:00 AM on alternating Fridays.  The Pastor allows quiet time for each person to reflect and pray.  Then, each person, concern or issue on the prayer list is prayed for.  Anyone can join the Prayer Team by  coming to a Friday prayer time.


Communion for Those who Are Home Bound

If they wish, care receivers are provided the opportunity to receive communion from the Pastor or a Care Pastor during a home visit.

Grief Care

Our Pastor and Care Pastors are available to support you during a serious illness,  planning a Memorial service, or through the grieving process.


You are not alone during this critical time. Our Pastor, Care Pastors and Mayflower family members are available to support you through the grieving process. Please notify us of your loss by contacting the Pastor at 239-775-0055.

Planning a Memorial service or Celebration of life for a loved one is never easy. Our Pastoral staff can support you in this. Please contact the Pastor at 239-775-0055.
