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.

Keep Columbus Beautiful195px

As part of the Keep Columbus Beautiful Program, volunteers at Maple Grove have adopted a stretch of West Henderson Road from the church west to Knightsbridge. We will pick up litter along this route at least twice each year, in the spring and fall. The city will provide all the equipment we need and will arrange to pick up the bags of trash. As part of our annual Stewardship Campaign, we will collect trash along this route after second service on Sunday, April 26. Gloves, bags, grabbers, and safety vests will be handed out on the patio. Signup sheets will be in the lobby on the first three Sundays in April or contact the church This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Join us (and wear your Maple Grove tee shirt!) as we serve our neighbors.
