Back to Two Services September 2!

All you early birds will be happy to know that this Sunday, September 2, Maples will resume our schedule of two morning services. Just a reminder about the times: "The Table" will be our early morning service at 8:30 a.m. offering Holy Communion each week including music, prayer time and a sermon. Sunday School will continue to be held at 9:30 and our main service will take place at 10:30 a.m.

Wednesday Night Activities Begin August 8th

Our Wednesday night schedule resumes on August 8th. Supper is at 5:30 p.m. with a nursery, a rotation of children's activities, youth activities and four adult small group offerings. We have sign up sheets with brief descriptions at the Information Desk for the adult groups-please sign up if you plan to attend so that we can plan spaces accordingly. A brochure with all the information you need is available at the Desk as well.

Little Free Pantry

The Little Free Pantry, installed last summer on the west side of our campus, has been a valuable outreach to the Olive Branch community. Not only does is provide non-perishables and hygiene items to those in need, it has been a fulfilling yet easy way those who are 2 to 92 can be the hands and feet of Christ. I have received touching messages of thanks who have benefited from the pantry's items and also the excitement of an MLC parent whose child loves adding an item everyone morning. 

If you have any questions, feel free to contact via email.  You're encouraged to sign up to fill the pantry here. Examples of pantry items can include nonperishable foods, toilet paper, diapers, baby food, hygiene products (soap, toothpaste, etc), pet food, & school supplies. (Vitamins, medicine, and razors are discouraged.)

Furniture at the Parsonage

The Board of Trustees is recommending the parsonage be sold.  There are several pieces of furniture remaining in the house.  If there are items which were donated by members, we want to give you a chance to retrieve them.  Please call Jane or Pam in the church office if you need to reclaim any furniture.
