Lent begins with Ash Wednesday on March 1 and ends with Easter Sunday on April 16. In Children’s Worship, our Maize Manor kids will be learning about the awesome power of Christ’s resurrection and how that impacts our lives today. The Bible verse of the month comes from Luke 24:5b–6a: “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen!”
At our March 24th Friday Night Live, kids and youth from our church and community will learn how Skittles candy can be used to tell the Easter story! March looks to be a fun month as we prepare to celebrate the journey Christ took to the cross – and beyond!

When the first Produce Market of the year comes to Maize Manor on April 8, a new ministry will be launched alongside it – The Walk-In Closet. A free clothing store for community residents.
The Walk-In Closet will offer new and gently-used clothing and accessories (purses, belts, etc.) and will be in Room 6 on the lower level across from the youth room.
*A friendly reminder from the church office* There are around 300 people connected to Maize Manor UMC, and the church houses over 60 ministries; coordinating all of this kingdom work takes a lot of planning! So please keep in mind that all church communication, decorations and storage decisions need to be coordinated with the church office.
