Weekly update

Church Meeting Night

August 6, 2018 is our next Church Meeting Night. Instead of committee groups meeting, we’ll all get together for Safe Sanctuary and Active Shooter training from 6:30-7:30 p.m. followed by Church Council at 7:30 pm. in the Parlor.

Worship and Music Ministry

Summer has arrived! This means less activity here at church. BUT we still want to worship, fellowship and enjoy each other! So join us when you’re in town. If you are on vacation or just traveling around the state you can live stream either or both services. Have a safe and happy summer!

Oh, you can also support us by using PayPal from the Give tab on the tool bar on top of the this and other pages.

Adult Study

Who is the Church? We are the Church! People are the Church. I Corinthians 12:14-26 tells us all the people are needed to be a part of the Body of Christ. We need you and you need us. For the next several weeks we are going to study God’s love. Please join us, the Church, Sundays at 10:45 a.m. in the Parlor to honor the Church and learn about the Body of Christ.

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.

Pat’s Pillow Case Ministry

If you are available, come join us on Saturday, June 30th at 10am. Good fellowship, good fun, good food, and you will help put smiles on the faces of children staying at Ronald McDonald House!

Christian Education

 Children’s Worship

Children’s Worship is a large group, small group experiences for kids in Preschool through 5th grade and features a Bible lesson and fun activities.

Children’s Worship will continue to meet throughout the summer at 11:00 am. in room 5.

July will teach kids about what we can learn from the stories Jesus told. In Matthew 7:24, Jesus said, “Everybody who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise builder who built his house on bedrock.” We hope your kids will join us in worship this summer!

Vacation Bible School

Sunday, July 15 – Thursday, July 19 6:00-8:30

Pre-registration will begin soon. Children 3 years of age and who have attended preschool through 5th grade are invited to attend Shipwrecked. Youth will have an opportunity to be helpers.

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.


There are wonderful opportunities for children, youth and families to attend a United Methodist Church camp. Anyone interested is encouraged to contact Jani McClenathan for information.

Friday Night Live!

We had a great year of Friday Night Live, from Donut Wars last August to our end-of-year Cookout last month! We’ll take the months of June and July off, then start back up again with our August Friday Night Live on August 24! Many thanks to all of our wonderful volunteers, and we hope to see you in the Fall!

From the Preschool Director

Summer has arrived – ENJOY! We know that this too can be a very busy time with lots of activities for children and adults, but we pray that all of our families will be able to relax and enjoy the outdoors together this summer. Vacation Bible School will be held July 15-19 from 6:00pm8:30pm. Stop in the main church office for registration information or call 614-267-4939. Please help us by encouraging family and friends to check out our preschool for their children. Word of mouth is our best advertisement! God Bless Summer! Karyn Thomas



It is once again that time of year when we must start planning ahead for next fall. We are accepting registrations now. Classes are filled on a first come first serve basis and tend to fill up quickly. Please tell your friends, family, and colleagues about your experience here at Maize Manor Preschool. Our best advertisement is word of mouth!

The Breakfast Bunch

Tuesday, July 24, 2018 at 10am

We meet the 4th Tuesday of the month, at 10:00 a.m. at the Graceland Bob Evans. This is open to all who attend Maize Manor. It is a nice time to meet with others outside of worship, catchup and socialize. If you can attend please call Mary Smith by 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday morning so she can reserve enough tables for the group.

Maize Road Civic Association National Night Out

is on August 7th at 5:30 here at Maize Manor. It always proves to be a great time. So, plan to come out and represent our church as part of this community event.

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. Should you be interested please contact our Care Team Coordinator, Jerry Eberlyn

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 out 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

Helping Hands is a ministry of Maize Manor UMC that has provided luncheons to families at a time of loss and bereavement since 1981. It is a service of love and caring to aid our church families in times of personal need upon the death of a loved one. This is one of the most appreciated and important services the church provides. We are in need of volunteers to keep this ministry alive. We are inviting you to become involved!

If you have any questions, please call Dona Riedmiller or Lee Eichensehr
