At Maple Grove United Methodist Church, church ministry is Christ's ministry. Our ministry includes worship, connection, service, spiritual formation and witness. There are lots of things that we do individually and also do together as a congregation.
Prayer Shawl Ministry
Prayer shawl ministry's aim is to console those who are grieving, to comfort those who are ill, and bring hope to those in despair. During the worship service prayer shawls are offered and blessed for anyone wishing to receive a tangible reminder of God's presence and comfort, either for themselves or a friend.
"Noisy Change" offerings are collected in worship once a month to support this ministry.
