Weekly update

Debit and Credit Cards now accepted.

Maize Manor has recently started accepting debit and credit cards. It’s still pretty new, so for now, we’ll be only using it before first service in the Narthex. If you’d like to purchase gift cards or make a donation stop by the gift card table Sunday mornings.

Charge Conference Tuesday, September 18 at 7:00 p.m. in the Parlor.

Scrip & Gift Cards

Scrip Table/Gift Cards Gift Cards are the safest way to purchase. Recently, it has been in the news that people are going into stores and taking the number and pin number off the back of cards but leaving the cards. You then go in and purchase a card, but when you go to use the card, it has been used up and you are stuck with an unusable card. The answer is: purchase the gift card from the church. They come from a company and no one can get the number or the pin number off of the back. Do you ever wonder if your credit or debit card is safe with your waiter at a restaurant? Where does he or she take your card? I know it is out of sight, but is it really safe with this person. Some watches are really skimmers and your waiter can skim your credit card. A gift card does not contain any personal information for anyone to steal. You can avoid worrying about your card being compromised if you buy a card at church and then use it as cash. People are capturing credit card information using skimmers at gas stations and ATM machines to capture your pin number. The church sells $50 BP and Sunoco Cards, and $25 Marathon, Speedway and Shell cards. Purchase gift cards You can order cards anytime. I place orders from the company on the first and third Sunday of each month. Just make your check out to Maize Manor. The cards will be at the gift card table for you to pick up on the second and fourth Sundays. Oakland Park Gift Cards are available for $25. These are sold separately from the other gift cards because the money goes to the youth of the church. The youth get $5 for every card sold.

Worship and Music Ministry

Child Care is available for young children from 9:30 am-12 noon in the Nursery.

Adult Study

Sorting days/times include: Mondays from 1-3pm or the First Thursday monthly from 5:30-6:30pm Each month, we’ll do a big sort on the Thursday before the Market to make sure everything is in place, so mark your calendars!

Hygiene Kits

It’s time to put together hygiene kits for the Festival of Sharing at Otterbein University Saturday, September 15 from 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. If you are interested in helping, please take a Ziploc bag for each kit, instructions are included. Place completed hygiene kit in the tote under the tables. Last year our church provided 77 kits. Deadline for assembled kits is Friday, September 14.

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

Maize Manor delivered 50 pillowcases and four, gallon bags of pop tabs to the Ronald McDonald House! Money from the tabs is used for expenses at the House. We collect any kind of tabs, such as cat food, soup and soda. One pillowcase is given to each child at the House.
On this day, a mother was sitting next to the big Ronald statue at the House, so we gave her a pink teddy bear pillowcase for her three-year-old daughter. Little things like this mean so much when your child is ill. Join us Saturday, October 27, for our next sewing session from 10 am-2 pm. Lunch is provided. You don’t have to be an accomplished seamstress. There is something for everyone.

Christian Education

Memories made at VBS

Thank you to everyone who made Shipwrecked VBS a great success for 51 preschoolers and elementary kids. There were over 50 adult and youth helpers during the week who sang songs, presented skits, told Bible stories, watched a kid video, played games, created crafty fun, made snacks and walked with the children so they all arrived at each station on time. There were others helping with registration, sound booth and setting up. In addition there were many of you who made preparations, gave needed set and food donations and prayed for our success even before VBS began. During the week our Missions project was Back-To-School supplies. We collected many items for the community kids. A BIG THANKS to all!!! 

Children’s Worship

September is Sunday School time! Children up to 5th grade have Sunday School during the 9:30 Worship hour in Room 114 of the Education wing and children can be dropped off prior to parents going to worship. Older children may also check with an usher to be an acolyte.

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 515

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.

From the Preschool Director

The school year has begun at Maize Manor Preschool and we are off to a fine start! The staff and I would like to thank you for your encouragement and enthusiasm as we begin this school year. We will welcome 68 families on August 28th and we ask for prayers for the children and families. May we experience another wonder-filled year. Children grow up in the blink of an eye. We pray that God will give us vision to see all that He has planned for them, and the wisdom and courage to help them toward a life time of achieving those goals.
Karyn Thomas
Director of Maize Manor Preschool

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 that started in 1981. It is a service of love and caring to aid our church families upon the death of a loved one by providing a meal after a funeral or service. These luncheons provide a time for the family to share a story, talk with family, and begin to heal. It often comes at the busiest times and we sincerely thank all who have helped by providing food, helping with setup, serving, and clean-up. Several of our volunteers have stepped down from serving and we are in need of new faces to keep this very important ministry alive. If you would like more information or to volunteer, please call. Listen to some of the families:

“Please know that our family very much appreciates the luncheon provided after Dad’s funeral. It was so nice for us to be able to sit together and relax a bit after such a trying time. God’s blessing on all of those who helped with it. Thank you.”

“Thank you all so much for the lovely luncheon following the funeral. We appreciated the work that goes into all that setup, the delicious food, and the opportunity to visit with friends and family.”

“Helping Hands has provided meals for my family three times: the death of my brother, father, and recently my mother. When you are grieving, making arrangements with the funeral home, pastor and out of town friends and family, having a group of loving people ready and willing to help is a blessing. The meal is often the last thing you think of but it is also an important part of the process. We went to a restaurant after Larry’s mom passed. It felt cold and did nothing to start us on the road to healing, but Helping Hands provided a warm, loving place to start. It’s hard to express the comfort being with family and friends after the funeral in a place where you feel safe to cry and laugh as you share memories and begin to heal.” –Becky Rish
