The Market, in combination with our Walk-In Closet, will be held the second Saturday of each month, rain or shine, throughout the year. Let family, friends and neighbors know about this event if they are interested in receiving free produce. Each family will get 20-40 pounds of food.

The markets need volunteers to assist in running the busy events on Saturdays, 9:45 am until 1:30 pm. We appreciate everyone’s assistance with this valuable community program.

Sorting the Closet

We will not be collecting clothes during the month of May.

We need help to sort clothing on the first Thursday of each month, 5:30-6:30 pm. As we catch up on donations, during February we will be collecting clothes for men, teens, and children, along with winter coats and gloves. and coats for all ages and genders. Thank you for your contributions and help with sorting.

Pop Tabs for Ronald McDonald House

Please save your pop tabs for the Ronald McDonald House. They collect thousands of tabs from pop cans, soup cans, cat food, and anything that has a tab. This is their biggest fundraiser and all the money stays in Columbus, going back to the house to help the parents of sick children. Susie Blessing or Lee Eichensehr will collect your tabs at any time or drop them by the church office.

Children’s Worship

Church Family Sunday is the first Sunday of every month. The children have the opportunity to lead worship during either Sunday morning service. All children are invited to have lunch and watch a movie in the Youth Lounge at 12:00 pm. Also at noon, the Pastor Led Small Group and lunch for adults will meet in the Parlor. 

At 10:30 children are invited to join Linda Fabbro for music in the Choir Room. Come and sing old time favorite VBS songs and have some fun.

During the 11:00 Worship, children, preschool through 5th grade, may stay with their parents until Pastor Ryan calls for them to come forward. After a prayer, children are dismissed to follow the teachers for large group worship in the Sanctuary, followed by small group in Room 114.

Oakland Nursery gift cards

Children and youth who attend a United Methodist Church Camp get to make new friends, experience God’s love and grow in their faith. You can help young people from Maize Manor attend this summer by purchasing Oakland Nursery gift cards before purchasing your garden and lawn needs. The gift card table has $25 cards available with $5 of each card purchased going to help fund a camper.

Summer Camp

It’s not too early to start thinking about summer camps. We have wonderful opportunities for children, youth and families tp attend a United Methodist Church camp. If you are interested, contact Jani McClenathan.

From the Preschool Director

It’s enrollment time at Maize Manor Preschool. We are currently enrolling for the 2019-2020 school year. Word of mouth is our best advertisement. Please tell your family, neighbors, and friends about the high quality preschool right here at MMUMC! Thank you for bringing in Box Tops over the past year and thank you for buying candy bars in February. These two fundraisers help the preschool bring special visitors, like the Turtle Lady, to the preschool to share their knowledge with the preschoolers. Your support is greatly appreciated.

Maize Manor Preschool has been designated a 5 Star Program from the State of Ohio Step Up to Quality system! This is the highest quality rating possible. Spread the word!

Congregational Care

Care Team

The Care Team is made up of church members who have volunteered to contact and visit members from our church due to the following:

Hospital Visitation Team – This group connects with people who are undergoing hospitalization for surgical procedures, illness, and birth of a baby.

Long-Term Care Visitation Team – This group connects with people who are residents of long-term care facilities and have limited mobility and cannot come to church.

Home-Bound Care Visitations Team – This group connects with people who are largely confined to their homes by illness or infirmity and cannot come to church.

Communion Visitation Team -This group brings communion to people on the first Sunday of each month after the elements have been blessed during the morning services. Only people who request to have communion brought to them will receive this service.

The Care Team also has members who make phone calls to check on church members, and send cards.

The Care Team is looking for more volunteers to serve on any of the before mentioned teams. Should you be interested please contact our Care Team Coordinator, Jerry Eberlyn

Helping Hands

Do you ever wonder what our Helping Hands ministry does? Think you might like to volunteer but not sure what you’d be getting yourself into?

Helping Hands provides meals for church family members after a funeral or service. It’s just like cooking at home for your family. We have a set menu, so there’s no guess work. There is a crew that sets up the tables, then arranges the napkins and silverware – just like at home. Food is pulled from the oven or refrigerator and put out for serving – just like at home. And just like at home, there are dishes to wash! Following these meals, families offer many thanks and words of gratitude. We provide a very appreciated service – just like at home!

There is no set schedule for your helping hands. We step in when needed. Helping Hands always needs volunteers. so if you could offer your hands, please give Lee your name.


Please take time to check out our new hospitality bulletin boards and tables in the Narthex and Lobby!
