Thank You, thank you everyone who participated! You made our Dedication Hymn Sing the most spiritual and uplifting one to date.

Living into our Core Values

Being part of a Welcoming Community, finding Inspiration and Spiritual Centering in Worship and Music and other offerings at Maple Grove United which have been identified as key Core Values for our congregation.  Part of that is about living respectfully with one another when we gather together.

For many Inspiration and Spiritual Centering are found in our ministries of music.  The Postlude at the end of our services of worship is still part of the worship experience even though there has been a Blessing (Benediction) and Closing Chorus.
