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.

Faith-based Response to the Opiate Epidemic

Dreamland“Overdose deaths increased from 3,050 in 2015 to 4,050 last year (2016), and fentanyl and related drugs were involved in 58.2 percent of them. By comparison, fentanyl was involved in 37.9 percent of overdose deaths in 2015, 19.9 percent in 2014, 4 percent in 2013 and 3.9 percent 2012. Illegally produced fentanyl can be hundreds of times stronger than heroin, and carfentanil and other related drugs can be even stronger.” The Ohio Department of Health.

How can we bring hope to those impacted by addiction and to heal our communities? Let’s start with increasing our awareness and understanding of the opiate crisis. You are invited to join in the discussion of the book Dreamland: The True Tale of America’s Opiate Epidemic by Sam Quinones.

“From a small town in Mexico to the boardrooms of Big Pharma to Main Streets nationwide, an explosive and shocking account of addiction in the heartland of America”

Books and sign-up sheets are available in the lobby after worship. Discussions will be held February 11 after the second service. Lunch will be provided. The discussion will be repeated on Sunday, February 25 from 4 - 5:30 PM. A light supper will be provided. Please sign up for the session of your choice.

The Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper is on February 13th!

Shrove Tuesday Mardi GrasShrove Tuesday occurs the day before Ash Wednesday, the beginning of the Lenten Season, when traditionally Christians simplified their meals, giving up rich foods, in daily remembrance of the forty days that Jesus spent in the desert fasting and praying.

At Maple Grove, we celebrate Shrove Tuesday with an all-you-can-eat pancakes, sausage and bacon supper. T.M.I., confirmands and the Youth will be hosting this event on February 13 from 5:30 to 7:00. The cost per person is $6.00. Children 3 and under eat for free and gluten-free pancakes will be available. All proceeds will benefit our youth and tween ministries. Please join us in Fellowship Hall for an evening of food, fun and fellowship. Tickets can be purchased in the lobby on Sundays or at the door.

Let the good times roll!
