On behalf of the members and staff of Maple Grove United Methodist Church I would like to welcome you to this web-site introduction to our community of faith. 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 our denomination's slogan: Open Hearts, Open Minds, Open Minds, Open Doors.
As you surf the pages of our site we believe you will get a glimpse of the passion for ministry that makes our faith community such a vibrant witness to the community beyond our walls. 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.
While you will learn much about us through these web-pages, we believe it's important to experience us in person. I would like to invite you to join us for any of our events, especially Sunday morning worship and Sunday School. We invite your e-mails, phone calls and visits and we look forward to further opportunities to share the Maple Grove story and vision.
Yours in Christ's name,
Rev. Glenn Schwerdtfeger
