Safe Sanctuaries is the name given by United Methodist Annual
Conferences and local churches to make church programs welcoming and safe for children, youth and vulnerable adults. Safe Sanctuaries creates an environment with boundaries of safe space for children, youth, and vulnerable adults, and the adults who work with them.
Maize Manor provides training for all members, staff and volunteers
who will be working with children, youth and adults. We will hold a training Monday, August 5, 7:30 pm. Yearly training is required for all adults who work in our children’s ministries and the five-year background checks are paid for by the church. We are planning to record the training so anyone who misses it can still be trained. Please contact Heather Miller for more information.
Maize Manor is sending a team of volunteers to Detroit, Michigan this summer. The team will be working with Scott Memorial United Methodist church from Sunday, July 21 – Thursday, July 25. Please remember to pray for their safety in travel, good health and an abundance of energy and strength for all, and for God’s blessing in the team’s ministry activities.

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.
Since the first Thursday was the 4th we will be sorting in the 11th this month.
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.
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.
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.
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.
We have wonderful opportunities for children, youth and families tp attend a United Methodist Church camp. If you are interested, contact Jani McClenathan.
Have a great summer, see you in the fall!

The Education Committee is excited to hold its second Book Fair to build our Preschool’s Library. Preschooler’s are especially fond of the Pete the Cat Series by Eric Litwin, and books by author Mo Willems. Holiday books are always enjoyed. Books may be dedicated in honor or memory of someone with a personalized bookplate. Books may be brought in anytime from now until September when all the donated books will be displayed and blessed by Pastor Grace.
THANK YOU! Thank you to all who ordered the new Maize Manor tee shirts. A special thanks to the anonymous donor who offered to cover the cost for ALL the shirts, as well as a shirt for every child who signs up for VBS. This means no one needs to turn in any money to cover cost. It will be exciting to see the church and the kids wearing shirts saying LIVE LIKE JESUS!
We’re taking the summer off. See you in the fall!

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
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.
Are now available on our website: Click About Us then and follow the link. or the links below.
You can also sign up to receive the catalog via email on this same page.
