May Memorial Baptist Church


Welcome to May Memorial Baptist Church!

We are a wonderful church family that provides opportunities for people of all ages to nurture their faith and pursue their faith story.

Having heard God’s call in Jesus Christ, the members of May Memorial are people who allow their ordinary lives to be used in extraordinary way by God who continues to offer new life and good news to our broken world.

The church family of May Memorial has set goals in accomplishing God’s mission in the world. First, we seek to reach a world with the good news of Jesus Christ.

This good news is the gospel that can offer hope to the hopeless and transform us into a new people who live lives of meaning and purpose.

As pastor of May Memorial, I warmly invite you to get to know the Church Family at May Memorial. You will find that May Memorial family is made up of people who are committed to following Jesus Christ and making a difference in our Powhatan community and in the world.

Pastor Michael Edwards

Monday, January 16

On Monday, January 16 May Memorial will conduct a "mini Operation Inasmuch." We are taking the MLK Holiday to engage our community through four missions projects:

1. Firewood Delivery
2. Party at the Essene Home (with an Elvis Impersonator)
3. Collection and Delivery of food to the Ruby Leonard Food Pantry
4. Fun and Games at the Amelia Nursing Home

This will be a simple day and each team will set its own schedule. There will be no assembly at May Memorial and no lunches will be provided. The only activity will be the mission projects.

You can sign up to be on a team, and all ages are welcome on all teams.
