A message from the pastor
It’s a new year, and it feels like the same old challenge but I still say, Happy New Year! We just need to remember that there is no power on this earth that can stop the Word of God from prospering. The gates of hell will not prevail against His Church. So, we invite you to join together and worship. Sometimes you have to stay home. So what? That's how the Church began: gathering in your homes, connecting with one another and with Christ. Let's stay in the Word, let’s pray together, let’s worship Him. God is still God and He has great things planned for His Church. So even though there are times that we can't be face to face, nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus. So, HAPPY NEW YEAR. It's not the year that makes us happy anyway, right? Maybe we ought to say, "Happy New You!"
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” 2 Corinthians 5:17
I hope someday that we do get past all of the separations that are being caused by this terrible pandemic. But even when we are apart, there's nothing that keeps us from doing what we do. Let’s give the devil a black eye. Go ahead and have a Happy New Year. Amen?
2 Thessalonians 2:16-17 Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and our God and Father, who has loved us and given us everlasting consolation and good hope by grace, comfort your hearts and establish you in every good word and work.

The Methodist Church in Mayflower, Arkansas, was first organized in 1880 with Thomas A. Alexander as circuit rider preacher. This was the first church founded in Mayflower, a community named after a railroad engineer’s password: Mayflower. The trees to build the railroad through Mayflower were harvested along the Palarm Creek just south of town. Now Mayflower United Methodist Church, we are preparing to celebrate our 140th birthday.
