Grow with Us
Our church provides a range of educational opportunities and meaningful ministries for children, families, youth, and adults of all ages. There’s something for everyone to help grow your relationship with faith, with God, and with one another.
Children and Families
We provide Sunday School and nursery care during weekly worship; midweek family fellowship from September to May in conjunction with children and youth choir rehearsals; Messy Church for young families monthly; service opportunities and social opportunities for children, youth, and families; and more.
Youth Ministry and Confirmation
Our youth ministry supports 6th – 12th graders as they grow in mind, body, and spirit. We are committed to being an inclusive and welcoming place for all. We provide a variety of ways for youth to stay connected so that they can grow in their love for God, live their faith in service, and build sacred community with other youth and adults.
Our youth ministry includes confirmation for 7th and 8th grade students, Connection Choir for junior high students, Chapel Choir for senior high students, and mission and fellowship opportunities for all youth throughout the year.
Maple Methodist Preschool (formerly First United Methodist Preschool) has been providing an inviting learning environment for over 55 years and is committed to helping each child discover, affirm, and develop the marvelous gift of his or her life. The preschool helps two, three, and four-year old children build self-confidence through interaction with others and discovery. A positive attitude toward learning is developed by presenting tasks for the children which they can enjoy and master. Children are encouraged to respect the rights and views of others while making decisions for themselves. Learning to get along with others is vital for success in the early school years. Our play-based preschool is for children who are 2, 3, or 4 years of age as of September 1.
Lifelong Christian Learning
Christian discipleship is a lifelong journey of discovery about self, others, and the God who gives us life. We offer programs for all ages, which enable us to grow in faith, be renewed in love, and serve Christ faithfully in the world. We believe that our faith should engage both head and heart.
There are classes and small group opportunities for all ages. We offer adult education classes on a variety of topics throughout the year. During the week, there are also groups discussing a wide variety of topics including faith, fiction, and films.
