Welcome to Maple Grove UMC
Our mission is to be an open community of Christians who love God and serve our neighbors (Luke 10:27). We truly do believe and try to live out the slogan of our denomination's national ad campaign Open Doors, Open Minds, Open Hearts. Our ministry teams reflect our understanding that every member is a minister. Maple Grove is strategically located on the southwest corner of the busy High and Henderson intersection in the Clintonville-Beechwold area of Columbus which provides us a wonderful window to the world. We would like to invite you to join us for any of our events, especially Sunday morning worship and Sunday School.

Here's the Buzz: Imagine No Malaria Mosquito Sculpture on Display in July
Clintonville artist and Maple Grove United Methodist Church member, Valerie Aveni, created an upcycled sculpture of a giant mosquito to bring awareness to the cause Imagine No Malaria. The materials she used include beverage cans she collected from Clintonville residents. The mosquito sculpture is on display outside Maple Grove UMC on the corner of Henderson & High Streets in Clintonville.
Maple Grove UMC is a member of the West Ohio Conference of the United Methodist Church. The West Ohio Conference has collected $3.5 million in donations and pledges to support bringing an end to death by malaria. Donations are used to fund the purchase of bed nets, communications materials and to help support and educate health care workers in over 300 health clinics in the hardest-hit areas.
