Indoor Worship: Our church has returned to worship in our sanctuary. We urge those who are medically fragile or are uncomfortable being indoors to continue worshipping online (There will be a live stream of the worship service). Anyone attending in-person gatherings at Maple Ave. will be expected to wear a face covering (over the nose and under the chin), keep a physical distance of 6 feet or greater between other households and follow our other protocols. As always, anyone who does not feel well (fever, shortness of breath, new or worsening cough) should stay home.
Angel Tree: This year we are collecting gifts to help foster children in Cobb County. The supply list is available online. CLICK HERE FOR THE LIST. We ask that supplies be dropped off at the church by Wednesday, Dec. 9th. If you are coming by during the week please contact the church office before coming by to make sure someone will be around to accept the supplies. If you prefer, you can make a monetary donation to the project. Those monies will purchase left over items or go to provide grocery gift cards to the families.
Advent Bible Study: Starting on Dec 2 we will begin a new study on Wednesday Night through ZOOM. The Study is titled, "Christmas is Not Your Birthday" by Mike Slaughter. Books are available on amazon and other online booksellers. The church can also place an order for for you. The book costs $13. If you are interested please contact the church office or Josh direct.
Read Through the Bible in 2021: Starting in 2021 Josh is inviting the Maple Avenue family to join him in reading through the Bible in a year using the "Grand Sweep" devotion by J. Ellsworth Kalas. The Grand Sweep is available through Amazon and other retailers. If you would like the church to place an order for you we would be glad to do so. If purchased through the church the cost per book is $20.
November-December 2020 Upper Room: The November-December 2020 Upper Rooms are located in the Narthex.
Church Office Hours: Currently, the staff is working primarily from home. We continue to collect the mail daily and regularly check the office phone for messages. However, the best way to reach the staff is by email or by calling Josh directly.
