-Packs of 24 crayons

-Glue Sticks

-#2 Pencils (not mechanical)

-Scissors (blunt)


-Pocket folders (plain)

-Pink erasers

-Packs of wide-ruled notebook paper

Supplies are due to the Church office by Sunday, July 30. Thank you for your generosity!

Summer Worship

As we come into Summer Break, things will quiet down a bit here at Maize Manor. But both our Sunday Services will continue unaffected as well as…

Sunday School 9:30 a.m.,

Adult Study 10:45 a.m.,

Kid’s Worship 11:00 a.m., Sundays

and Bible Study 10:00 a.m., Wednesdays.


Children and youth who attend a United Methodist Church Camp get to make new friends, experience Gods 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 Children’s Worship

The kids may be out of school for the summer, but Children’s Worship is still in session every Sunday at 11am! In June, our kids will learn how not to be afraid of new things, of not having enough, of pain and suffering, and of being alone because no matter what happens, God is always with us! Then in July, kids will talk about how to have a Godly summer vacation. We look forward to seeing your children in worship this summer!

August Friday Night Live

Summer is here, but before we know it, it will be time for Friday Night Live to start again! The first Friday Night Live will be August 25, from 68pm! With the theme of ‘Donut Wars,’ children will decorate donuts and then compete against each other to see whose donut is the most creatively decorated! Children will learn how donuts can teach us to ‘Rejoice Always’ by fo-using on the positive (the donut) and not on the negative (the hole)! Donutthemed games and crafts will also be part of the fun! Students aged Preschool and up can take part. If you’d like to volunteer to help out with Friday Night Live, email mariel-lyn@gmail.com. See you in August!
