Ash Wednesday Worship 2016 PDF Print E-mail
Written by Julie Blum   

     Ash Wednesday is on February 10, 2016 and we will gather together for worship at 7:30 pm in the sanctuary.  For many people, this worship service is one of their favorites of the whole church year. As part of the worship service, the will pastor mark the forehead of each participant with black ashes in the shape of a cross. This act echoes the ancient Near Eastern tradition of throwing ashes over one's head to signify repentance before God, as related in the Bible.  This worship service also includes prayers around the cross, candle lighting, confession, music and scripture.  Please join us for this penitential and solemn service as a way of marking the beginning of the season of Lent.  We encourage you to make the Ash Wednesday worship service part of your Lenten practice.

Written by Julie Blum   

     For the five weeks of Lent we will offer Thursday evening mid-week Lenten soup supers and worship experience, February 18 - March 17 from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm.  Mark your calendar now and plan to be with us every Thursday.  Soup and bread will be served at 6:30 pm and then a brief worship service will begin at 7:00 pm.

     Our worship service will be surrounded by the beautiful setting of Holden Evening Prayer and feature a different Maple Leaf member each week who will share their faith story.  Come out to hear real faith from real people.  Faith that isn’t perfect but genuine. Faith that isn’t necessarily polished but heartfelt.  We’d love for these stories to encourage you to think about your faith story and perhaps strengthen your faith.

MLK Jr. Day of Service 2016 PDF Print E-mail
Written by Julie Blum   

    We had over 60 folks from four neighborhood churches volunteer at the North Helpline Food bank on January 18 and WHAT a day it was!  What an awesome sense of community and doing good for others.  We bagged up SO much beans and rice not to mentioned other things like diapers. Maple Leaf Lutheran Church also contributed $500 to build benches for clients to use as they wait in line.  This will be quite a benefit as many of the clients are elderly and disabled.  Thanks to everyone who contributed money, rice, beans, prayers and their time to make such a huge impact on our community.  We had a wonderful time serving but also getting to know some of our fellow Christians in the neighborhood.  Let Pastor Julie know if YOU have an idea for our next service event. THANK YOU!

Written by Julie Blum   

 On September 13, 2015 we had a day filled with fun, worship, service and food.  The day started out with a bit of rain as we attempted to have a bike decorating contest and parade.  Then after worship we compiled 100 sack lunches for the residents of our SHARE homeless shelter, housed in our building.  Finally we ended the day with a pizza lunch.  Thanks to everyone for their service and for being a part of such a great community.
