Welcome to the web site of Maple Leaf Lutheran Church! We are a Christian community located in the Meadowbrook neighborhood of North East Seattle. We are a group of caring people who come together in joy to worship Christ, serve others and love our community. We also have a lot of fun together and laugh a lot! (often at ourselves.) We would love for you to be a part of that! Come visit us some Sunday morning. Worship is at 10:30 am.
Check out this website or our Maple Leaf Lutheran Church Facebook page (where there are way more photos & very current news and information) and then come and be a part of our grace-filled community. All are always welcome!
In October of 2017 we will be witnesses to a major milestone of our church: the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther nailing his 95 Theses to the doors of Wittenberg’s All Saints' Church. This was a turning point in our church history and we will be throwing ourselves into this celebratory year by beginning a 44 week Adult Forum entitled Ever-Reforming: A Reformation 500 Cross-Generational Study. Topics will cover Church History, Martin Luther, Lutheran Theology, Worship & Liturgy, and Music & Hymnody.
Classes will begin this winter and will run through the end of spring, after our summer break we will pick the sessions up again in the fall. Our first class will kick off after the holidays on January 8th at 9: 00 AM in the Church Library (third floor of education wing at Maple Leaf.) The starting month’s topics are as follows:
Week 1: A Very, Very Brief History of the Pre-Reformation Christian Church
Week 2: The Church on October 30, 1517
Week 3: The Reformation’s Major Figures
Week 4: Who, What, When, Where, and Why—Reformation Basics
Come for all of the classes or come for the one or two that catch your interest, all are welcome as we enjoy this time studying our past and applying it to our present.
2016 marked our TENTH year participating in the Wedgwood Business District Trick or Treat event. We are so proud to be part of such a wonderful and generous community. Here are some photos from this year:
After worship on September 25 we compiled 100 sacklunches to give to the residents who stay 365 nights a year in the SHARE homeless sheltered hosted at Maple Leaf Lutheran Church (next year we'll celebrate the shelter being with us for 20 years!) And we took some to Tent City 3 as well. Thanks community for being the hands of God's work.
We had such an awesome Day Camp this summer! 24 kids, 6 junior counselors, 3 counselors and numerous volunteers made it so fun to learn about God, the church seasons and loving others. Hope to see you all, and many more, next summer. When we know the 2017 dates, we'll let you know.
For mulitiple years now we have marched in the Seattle Pride Parade to show the love of God and support for our LGBTQ+ neighbors. This year we had over 250 fellow Lutheran join us from congregations all across Seattle. What an awesome display of love!
