Maple Grove in the news
Expansion & Preservation
We are located in a growing community in Waukee. Our existing church building must be moved back from the road due to the impending widening of Ashworth Road. Our building also needs to become more accessible to our members and guests.
During this time of growth our vision for our community building is to provide a larger space for community events, wedding receptions, child care and exercise. Now and always, we welcome everyone to our worship service and other spiritual activities.
Building & Expansion Plans
In October, Maple Grove UMC will open its doors to the community in a new ministry home that includes a multi-use worship space & fellowship hall, kitchen facilities, a nursery, Pastor’s study and space for youth & adult small groups.
These spaces will be vital tools for our ministry and mission, helping people connect with God and with one another. In this space, we will welcome new people from our growing suburban neighborhood to connect in Christian fellowship, grow in faith, experience healing and hope, and change the world.
The building is nearing completion, but we still need the finishing touches – things like furniture and equipment that will make the building a welcoming home. By providing a “housewarming gift,” you can be part of this important moment in the life of our church and invest in ministry that will transform lives for years to come!
We are asking friends and other churches to consider giving a one-time donation to represent an item – a “Housewarming” gift – for our new worship space! Below are just a few examples of the items, at a variety of prices, that would make great housewarming gifts.
$25 – Toys
$50 – Swing
$100 – Rocking Chair
$150 – Changing Table
$200 – Crib
$25 – Coffee Air Pot
$50 – Stock Pot
$250 – Round Tables for Fellowship
$200 – pays for one year of CCLI music and streaming licenses
$500 – pays for one 60” LCD panel for worship visual projection
$1,000 – pays for one Apple computer for our audio/video booth
$7,000 – pays for sanctuary sound system
These items will be purchased to help us fulfill our purpose and maximize the opportunity to welcome, connect, disciple and serve many people. By contributing to this fund, you are making a tangible difference and also reducing the church’s debt for the project’s finishing touches.
Tax-deductable donations can be mailed to PO BOX 845, Waukee, IA 50263 or make a donation online at www.gofundme.com/maplegrove100
