Children’s Ministry, Sunday School and Youth
Maplewood treasures each child for who they are. We recognize that they are a gift from God and are made in God’s likeness.
Our Sunday School provides a safe and loving environment. Each week we seek to nurture the child’s relationship with Jesus Christ through the foundation of Bible-based lessons, fun activities, crafts, and special projects. Group discussion further enriches their learning experience. The atmosphere further promotes our continuing message that each one of us is here to spread God’s magnificent love, to build positive relationships with each other, and to be thankful.
We encourage the children and youth to serve others and to look beyond themselves as Jesus Christ called us to do in the Gospel. Some of the ways our children and youth have served: collecting food for food banks (for pets and people), serving at community meals for our local homeless people, participating in the ‘Souper Bowl of Caring’ to collect money for the food bank, and participating in the ”30-Hour Famine” to learn about and raise awareness for those who are hungry. Children and youth also participate in worship. Servanthood - on their level - is a continuing focus within our program.
The children have their very own bright and cheery classroom, designed and decorated by our children. Come by and check us out! We would love to meet you and have you become a part of our church family!
Sunday School is available for children (kindergarten to grade 7) and youth (grade 8 and up) meet Sundays during the adult worship service.
