We meet the 4th Tuesday of the month, at 10:00 a.m. at the Bob Evans on 161 and Busch Blvd. This is open to all who attend Maize Manor. It is a nice time to meet with others outside of worship, catch-up 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.
Second Saturday from 11am—1pm
September 9, and October 14.
The need is growing and help is needed! If you are available to help for any part of the 9:30-1:30 time frame it would be appreciated. Tasks range from food handling, escorting, greeting, registering (laptop needed), and floating, We also need carts or wagons if you have one to loan. Thank you!
Our newest ministry, The Walk-In Closet clothing ‘store,’ continues to help tremendous numbers of people in our community by providing new and gently-used clothing and shoes for all ages. The Walk-In Closet will be open during the Produce Market on the second Saturday of the month through October. Clothing donations are needed for all ages and sizes, but particularly for children (babies through grade school), youth (12 & up), and women nd men. Accessories always go quickly as well, including shoes, purses, belts, scarves, etc. Remember – no stained or torn clothing, and please launder everything before donating. If you’re interested in volunteering to sort, hang, or help customers shop, email email@example.com.
Prayerfully, Betsy Mincey will be returning to Mi Refugio (My Refuge) this September. There is a significant need for Tylenol, Extra Strength Tylenol and children’s Tylenol. Anything you can donate will be so appreciated. Monetary donations will be appreciated as well. There will be boxes available in the Narthex.
You may have already or will be receiving an email from Servant Keeper. This is an invitation for you to log into your church records. When you do you will be able to update your and your family’s church records. Such as Name, Address, Phone numbers, email address, birth dates and anniversary dates.
You will also be able to upload photos of your family and individual photos for each of you. You can view your giving record any time you wish. No one else will be able to change or view your records (other than church staff authorized to do so). This is the first step to an online photo church directory. We will send you log on and password information for the directory soon too.
So, please help us by opening the email, updating your family records and adding photos. If you have not given us your email or have not received these emails, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
The school year is just around the corner! I hope everyone is enjoying the summer. Maize Manor Preschool is still accepting students for the 2017-2018 school year. Pass the word on to your family, friends, and neighbors. Word of mouth is our best advertisement!
In middle August I will be giving the teachers the class rosters so please have interested families call the preschool at 614-267-4944 to receive the necessary enrollment forms as soon as possible.
Parent’s Night is August 28 at 7:00pm in the Sanctuary and the first day of school is August 29th. Pray for another wonder filled school year!
Maize Manor’s first Friday Night Live of the fall is coming up fast! On Friday, August 25, we will welcome children and youth ages preschool and up for “Donut Wars’ – an evening of decorating donuts, making donut-shaped crafts, and learning how God can help us look for the donuts (positives) in life and not the holes (negatives)! If you are interested in volunteering, please email email@example.com. If you would like to make a donation to help purchase food and/or supplies, please mark it ‘Friday Night Live’ and place it in the offering plate. Thank you, and we look forward to another great year of loving on the kids and families in our community!
This month in worship, we’ll be focusing on the theme of ‘Be Still.’ After a busy summer of sports, travel, and entertaining kids, I bet we’re all ready to ‘Be Still!’ In Children’s Worship, our kids will learn that ‘There’s a Bible Verse for That,’ meaning that the Bible can help us through just about any situation! We just have to listen for God’s voice by reading scriptures, talking to our friends and family, and praying. The last Sunday of August will be Kick-off Sunday, so please be sure to join us for that special day on August 27!
Ding Dong Ding!! It’s that time of year again! Time to be thinking of ringing bells and Praising the Lord with Music! If you are 6-14 years of age, you are eligible to ring in the Children’s Bell Choir here at Maize Manor! You need to be able to count to 4, and follow directions. That’s it.
We will teach you the basic fundamentals to read sheet music, and to play in a group setting. Ringing bells in the bell choir is a lot like band. All ringers are necessary for the sound to be beautiful! We will be starting rehearsals at 5:00 pm on Thursdays, beginning September 7th.
Please see Linda Fabbro to sign up! We would love to have a parent each week to assist, you do not need to know anything about music! Parents, please encourage your children to join this wonderful choir. Did you know that every child that has participated in this bell choir, has went on to play other instruments? Something to consider!
As our Nursery and Sunday School classes grow we need more nurturing and caring individuals to help lead and assist with the children who regularly attend or visit each week. We also have Friday Night Live and Vacation Bible School that requires adult leadership.
West Ohio Conference requires individuals working with children and youth be trained yearly for their safety. You are invited to attend the Safe Sanctuary training Sunday, August 13 at 10:30 a.m. in Room 5. This training is required both current and new teachers. We hope you can become part of our team of teachers who are sharing Christ’s love with our next generation.
I want to thank the individuals and groups who have performed during the 9:30 am worship service this summer. It was a joy to hear many different styles of music praising God. As summer comes to a close, the Chancel Choir and Bell Choir will begin again to rehearse in preparation for the Traditional Worship Service. Both choirs will have their first rehearsal of the new season on Thursday, September 7th at their usual times. (Bell Choir: 6:15 pm and Chancel Choir: 7:30pm) I would like to invite anyone who is interested in singing or ringing with these groups to come to the first rehearsal.
Christy Ritts, Music Director
Saturday, September 23, from 9:00 am until noon at Otterbein College
If you would like to participate, our church will once again be providing the much needed hygiene kits. By Sunday, September 3, there will be tables set in the narthex and outside the Fellowship Hall with a sample kit and a list of required items. Please place your items in a one gallon plastic zipper bag, and put them in the donation boxes under these tables by Friday, September 22. Last year Maize Manor contributed 67 kits.
If you prefer to donated cash, please give it to Marilyn Paulsen and she will take it along with the kits on September 23rd. Thank you.

This year we have decided to combine the Annual Corn Roast with Friday Night Live to create a Fall Festival. This will streamline the calendar a bit so we don’t abuse our most valuable resources: YOU! We have amazing volunteers but with so many activites on the calendar it can be difficult to cover all of our needs. Please notice it is on a Friday, and many hands make light work, so if you can rearrange your work schedule so you are available to help it would be greatly appreciated.
The Corn Roast and UMW Bake Sale will remain at the Shelter House and we hope to have the following activities on or near the front lawn: a hay maze, hayrides, music, and horses!! (Thanks to Lisa Nash-Benton, Tim Funk, and Stockhands Horses For Healing). See Lee Eichensehr or Alice Castle for more info, or to volunteer your services.
Our first meeting for the program season will be Saturday, September 2nd at noon, in the Fellowship Hall. Please bring a covered dish to share. Millie will talk about her trip to Elkhart, Iowa. Hilary Federowicz and Millie Leone, Co-Chairs.
The next session is Saturday September 30th, at 10am, we will make special pillow cases. We encourage and welcome your participation, and are asking for donations of Patriotic fabric and thread for preparation of the Veteran’s pillowcases.
Thank you to all who serve faithfully on our board and to everyone who helped in anyway with National Night Out, August 1st, 2017.
Our next meeting is Wednesday, September 13th at 6:30 pm. and our liaison officer
will be there MRCA really appreciates Maize Manor’s support of our meetings and
Thank You, Elizabeth Mengali
