Who We Are

Warm, Diverse, Compassionate, Hungry for God: Our Identity, Our Calling, Our Vision

Our first worship service starts at 8:30 on Sunday morning, but people come early just to share with each other and encourage one another. Our last service ends at noon, but no one hurries to leave. Instead, we stay, eat a cookie or two, and enjoy getting to know new folks and catching up with old friends.

With our recent boom of young couples with small children, we are now a wonderful mix of children, youth, young adults, middle-aged adults, and senior adults. Our age diversity is matched by the diversity of our religious backgrounds. Some of us have never actively attended church before. Some of us have a Methodist background. Some of us have a Catholic background or come from other denominations. Whatever, it all goes together to make Mays Chapel a very stimulating place to be.

Mays Chapel folks jump at the chance to bless others in Jesus’ name.  Our recent efforts include working with a day time shelter for women and children, multiple tsunami relief projects and ongoing multiple Katrina and Rita Relief efforts.

Spiritual hunger
The people of Mays Chapel are serious about growing in Christ.  A very high percentage of our members participate in growth opportunities beyond Sunday worship that include Sunday school and small groups that meet at various times and locations throughout the week, as well as new mission opportunities every month.
