Maple Grove children's Ministry

Children's Ministries

Children are the heart of our church which is why we make our ministry to children a priority here at ElmCreek. From Sunday morning classes to our summer VBS program, we invest in kids so that they can learn about their faith and have fun doing it.

Maple Grove Women's Ministry

Women who care

Our Maple Grove Women's Ministry is a great place to meet new friends and grow in your faith. Through our monthly events and Bible studies, you will find community as you learn about Jesus in brand new ways. 

Maple Grove Church Women's Ministry

OUr vision

The Women's Ministry Team of 2017 desires to see women connect and share life through discipleship, pressing us towards Christ. Our monthly get-togethers are intended to build community and provide non-threatening environments for inviting neighbors, friends and family into relationships with women who love Jesus! Together, we seek to grow as a group, build friendships that challenge and inspire us, and seek God with our heart, mind, and strength.

Maple Grove Church Women's Small Groups

small group discipleship

While our Women's ministry events and Bible studies provide a fun place to grow in faith, discipleship is our goal. Discipleship is simply learning and growing to become and live like Jesus. Here at ElmCreek Community Church, we believe the best place to the take the next step in growing deeper in your faith is through small groups. For those women looking for an even deeper experience, we provide small groups where ideally three women will meet regularly to pray, study God's Word and share life with each other. Interested in taking the next step in discipleship?  Contact Kati Donaldson and together we can discover what God might have in store for you on your own discipleship adventure!

women's Team Summer Book Recommendations!

Summer can be a busy time for your families, no doubt! But, we hope you'll take time to read and study God's Word and grow in your relationship with Christ! Here are some other book recommendations we thought might be worth a read and can even be a great conversation starter as you gather with other women over the summer!

Maple Grove Men's Ministry

Our main man is Jesus

Men's Ministry at ElmCreek is about 3 things: helping men grow closer to Jesus, growing closer to one another, and meeting our community's physical needs. Using the gifts God has uniquely given us, we strive to spiritually and relationally build one another up with the intent to then turn outward and serve others.

Maple Grove Church Men's Breakfast

monthly men's breakfast

Our monthly Men's Breakfast is a time to come to the table (literally) with other men and talk about life and faith. At each breakfast, we eat and share our knowledge and experience on faith and the Bible. The goal is that we would encourage each other to understand what God is telling us in His Word and how we can live that out through a deeper relationship with Jesus. Our next breakfast is scheduled for Saturday April 8th. 

Maple Grove Church Men's Events

Other Men's events

In addition to our Men's Breakfast, we provide fun and interactive events for men to get connected and build friendships outside of Sunday mornings. Our events have included Whirlyball, bowling and other fun activities for a night out with the guys.

Helping your Faith & family Grow Stronger 

We provide ministries to meet you and your family where you are in faith and in life. Which is why we provide some additional resources for you to invest in growing a godly family as you become part of our family. 

Maple Grove Church Family Ministry

Energized Families

Energized Families focuses on encouraging, enriching and energizing godly marriages and families. Bring the entire family to church and drop off the kids, while you stay for a 20-minute informative message. Once the message is complete, you and your spouse leave for some quality interaction time for the evening. In other words, a date. 

In the meantime, your kids stay at church for a fun-filled evening of faith, friends, games and crafts. Our children's program is only $5 for the evening and they'll be begging to come back for more. Our next Energized Families event is scheduled for April 20th. Simply e-mail us to register. 

 

Maple Grove Church Bible Study

Gather with us every Sunday at 9:30 am as we read through and study the book of Psalms. At the close of our time, we'll pray for our church, one another and the worship service. 

Money and financial issues can be difficult.  Financial Peace University can help.  Join us each Tuesday night from September 12 through November 14 as together we wrestle with topics such as financial debt, retirement, living paycheck-topaychec, the spiritual affect money can have on each of us, and so much more.  If you would like to know more information about exactly what to expect out of Financial Peace University please visit their website.  You can also sign up for the class here.
