At Maple Avenue Ministries, we value diversity. We pray for each other and live to worship expressively. We have invested much to provide for and nurture children and young people. We thank God for the gifts that we have been given. We take seriously God’s call to make disciples. When we do outreach ministries, we want to do so in a way that meets the needs of the whole person. We desire committed relationships. We cherish these things and they speak to our deepest human needs. What we must remember is that these are also the needs of our neighbors. We have committed ourselves to be the tangible presence of Christ to our neighbors. We dream about being a diverse community where we and our neighbors can experience the love, care and respect that all people need and desire. With God’s help we can accomplish this vision.
