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 we can support you, please contact the office 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.  This has since become the responsibility of the Care Pastors and the Prayer Team.  Members pray daily for individuals, organizations, and others. 

The Prayer Team meets every two weeks in the Sanctuary at 10:00 AM on the 2nd and 4th Fridays.  This 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.

Outreach Team 

The Outreach Team has been formed to reach out to church family members who may need a little extra assistance.  It would be a short term need for meals while you are recuperating, extra prayers, a visit or phone call when you feel lonely, or something else that you would expect a friend to offer.  Please use the form on this page to request you special need.
