At Maple Grove, we believe that the best way to spread the Word is by connecting with people. To do this, we provide a number of opportunities for our congregation to interact within the church and to reach out to the community and the world at large.
Each Sunday morning, Maple Grove offers active and distinct adult Sunday School classes. One class takes place at 9:30 am, before church, and another just after the end of service. The teachers are well prepared and look forward to the individual class members’ active participation in the discussion of each lesson. The 9:30 class typically uses biblically based material selected with the assistance of the pastor and taught by a lay member of the church. The after church class focuses on DVD based material on such topics as “Understanding the New Testament” and “The Search for the Historical Jesus.” We welcome you to join us for Sunday School at Maple Grove United Methodist Church to enjoy listening to and studying God’s Word.
The United Women in Faith (UWF), (formerly the United Methodist Women), is an active group of women who meet monthly on the third Wednesday in the Fellowship Hall with programs presented on the yearly UWF theme. The UMF of Maple Grove is a community of women whose purpose is to know God and to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ, to develop a creative, supportive fellowship, and to expand concepts of mission.
The United Methodist Men (UMM) host a breakfast, open to all, on the last Saturday of each month. Guest speakers are invited to provide information on topics of interest. In addition, the Maple Grove UMM yearly undertakes a project which benefits the local community.
After the service on the second Sunday of each month, the entire congregation gathers in the Fellowship Hall for a potluck lunch. The conversation is always lively and the food is always excellent.
