God's Love is the ONLY Way

We love children here at Maples and we have designed our ministry around God's love, knowing that God's way is the only way.

God's love is demonstrated throughout the Bible and with God's love GREAT things happen.

We are looking for GREAT things to happen here at Maples as we love your children and teach them about that love of God.

The Children's Ministry Team at Maples actively strives to provide opportunities for children to learn about Jesus and God's great love for them, to praise God, to show God's love to others, and to develop an understanding of the Bible. 

All of Maples children's ministries are intentionally planned to teach a Bible story or principle using strategies that engage children in play, crafts, active listening, songs, and games.

  • Worship...were kids learn about God with a little wiggle room.
  • Prayer...we think it is so important we take time to pray for the kids and with the kids.
  • Missions...we participate in missions throughout the year.  We also encourage the kids to bring a quarter for the mission tube during worship.
  • Ministries...
    • Nursery available: Sunday mornings, Sunday evening activities, Wednesday evening activities.  
    • All ages:  movie nights, pancake supper & Mardi Gras parade, Walk with Jesus Easter event, Vacation Bible School, Back to school blessings & prayers, Spirit Kids, Trunk or Treat, Miracle of Jesus Christmas event, Olive Branch Christmas Parade
    • Older Children: Camp Lake Stevens 3rd - 5th grade retreat, 4th & 5th grade lock in, WHAT a ministry for 5th graders that meets the last Sunday of each month during the school year.

Please look for these events on the church calendar and plan to join us!


We love children so much we want to keep them safe.

We have three computers dedicated to signing in your children with us.  

The Nursery desk, the hallway between rooms 141 & 131 and the third computer is a floater.

When you sign in your child, you will receive two stickers.  One for your child and one for you.  Please place the child sticker on their back and you will keep the numbered one.  The numbered one matches the child's sticker for easier pick up.

The information that you provide helps us 

  • Keep children safe 
  • Remember their names
  • Identify third graders who receive Bibles
  • 6th graders who promote to youth ministries 
  • Medical and food allergy concerns
