Maple is celebrating its 125th year in ministry. Founded as an outreach Sunday School mission of First United Methodist in 1888, Maple has continued to worship in its original church building since it was founded. Thirty-three ministers have served the congregation which ministers to a diverse congregation. Ministry outreach includes quarterly dinners served to clients from the SHARE Center, service at Sally's Kitchen, a Halloween ministry to neighborhood children, and multiple mission outreaches.
In August, Rev. Kathryn Slaughter Cadarette will be returning to Maple to preach. Kathy was a member of Maple when she felt God's call on her life and said "Yes" to ordained ministry.
