Hi Everyone,

Greetings in the name of Christ our King!

Maple Hill will be suspending all programs/events and services starting March 16th until April 5th tentatively, as the church building will be closed for use except for food pantry.  

Services will be live streamed only, as we do our part to help slow the spread of COVID-19. 

Please remember the church body can still serve and worship wherever they are.  During this time, remember to be Christ’s hands and feet and take care of others as needed. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please email:

Kim, Church Administrator – office@maplehillbaptist.org

Pastor Mike – pastormike@maplehillbaptist.org

Sarah, Children and Youth –  youth@maplehillbaptist.org 

If you have any needs we can help with, please let us know and we will do what we can to help.

So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.” (2 Corinthians 4:16-18)

Because of Christ Jesus,

Elders and Church Leadership of Maple Hill

Dear Church Family,

Greetings in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

In the midst of COVID-19, we face many challenges. Please be in prayer for those infected and for the
spread of this disease to be limited or cease. Pray also for your brothers and sisters in the Lord serving
in high risk areas. Help those in need; be Christ’s hands and feet.

Church services will resume as per normal and if anything changes we will send out notifications by
email, Facebook and on our webpage.

As a precaution:

Stay educated: Stay knowledgeable on the disease through credible sites.

Stay home if: you have recently travelled, are feeling unwell with cold or flu-like symptoms, or have a compromised immune system. Our service stream begins Sundays at 10 a.m. 

Stay clean: We ask that you limit your physical contact at church and keep your hands clean. Bring your
own hand sanitizer in case of a shortage at church.

As a Christian:
We have a responsibility as Christians to live wisely during this time, please consider 1 Timothy 1:7,

“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”

We do not fear, but we can still use wisdom to prevent this disease from spreading further.

Please read the following to articles for some encouragement in the Lord:
