The New Chairs are Here!

Update – Chair Replacement Project.

The new chairs are here!   And the old chairs are gone.   Thanks to Peter, Norm and Grant for their help in unpacking, building the trolleys and dump runs with the packing waste. It’s a tight fit in the storage room but with a little juggling it works for now.  When stacked correctly each chair trolley holds 32 chairs and the table trolleys hold 10 tables. If we all take care when handling and stacking our chairs and tables they should serve us well for many years to come.

Fitness at Maple Grove

Did you know that Maple Grove United Church has fitness classes running three days a week? Have you ever walked by the Friendship Room on a weekday morning and wondered what is going on? Maple Grove has fitness classes running for ages 50+ and are ideal for beginners and/or intermediate levels. These classes are exclusively for ladies (we think the men are too scared to join us). Some of these ladies have been exercising with us for years!

We have just finished wrapping up our 2016-2017 season and it was another huge success.

Maple Grove United Church Men’s Group

Men from Maple Grove United Church have been meeting for a simple breakfast and fellowship once each month since October 1998. Our mandate is to provide a forum for men to discuss Christian values as they relate to families, business, and themselves. By agreement we are organized but unstructured, and we are not part of any organized United Church men’s groups.

Men’s Breakfast Meetings are held on the “second Wednesday” each month, except July and August, at 8 am enjoying Cora’s breakfast in a private room at the Dorval and North Service Road location,
