A place to come together to explore and  deepen relationship with Jesus Christ.


A church for all seasons AND
for ALL who profess faith in Jesus Christ.

It is a lighthouse, a guiding force that leads to a place of refuge, where you can find rest, security, and a continuation of your journey in the United Methodist faith.  The lighthouse lights the path that generations have walked before, a path that has stood the test of time.  It serves as a symbol of hope, a guiding light that ensures a safe and successful arrival at your desired destination; a port where new adventures, opportunities, and a sense of belonging await you.  As a “lighthouse church”, Maple Grove serves as a sanctuary for those who have left their churches after a disaffiliation vote and wish to retain their affiliation with the United Methodist Church (UMC), as well as those from other Christian faiths seeking a spiritual home.  If you are looking for a small, friendly church where you can truly enjoy praising your Savior, become active in doing the work of His church while at the same time enjoying fellowship with friendly, interesting Christians who support each other in a close Christian family fashion, welcome to Maple Grove, known as the friendliest and most accessible little church in Waynesville.

If you drive Waynesville’s busiest street, Russ Avenue, you can’t miss us on the hill beckoning you to turn into our parking lot and take a better look!  Many of our visitors have told us how they just had to look no further when they caught the breathtaking view of our stately church sitting on its beautifully landscaped hill with a large historical cemetery adjacent to the church.

The warm, friendly atmosphere within the church walls perfectly complements the outward welcoming appearance of Maple Grove.  Whoever enters our front door knows that the Holy Spirit is present and recognizes that God’s people within are a very special loving, caring bunch who are true disciples of Jesus Christ!

This is a special church with open doors calling you to enter.  Whether you are visiting our lovely county or are a local resident, we invite you to visit us.  We are easy to find, convenient to US 74 and the Lake Junaluska Conference Center,  accross Russ Avenue from the Senior Center.
