Sunday Service Times

Welcome to Maple Grove United Church

Summer Services at 9:30 am

Sunday July 31

Rev. Brenna Nickel presiding

Taize Worship Service

This Sunday, our worship will be in the style of Taize. Taize is a monastic community in France, which was founded on principles of reconciliation and hospitaltiy. Since the 1960s, it has been a pilgrimage site for young adults throughout Europe and the world. Come and see why! Through simple chants, religious artwork, and silence we’ll worship and reflect on God’s presence in our lives and the world.

We welcome the presence of children in our worship service, and are blessed by their participation. Throughout The summer, we will have a Creativity Table in the children’s chapel during worship.
