Maplewood hosts a free community dinner every Friday from 5:45 – 7 pm in cooperation with the Korean N.E.S.T. Mission and several other area churches. The dinner is free and open to all. This is in keeping with our interest in serving the homeless, supporting social justice causes in our community and worldwide, and promoting fellowship within our local community.
Maplewood has a community garden. For more information, contact the Maplewood office at (425) 778-5248 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Maplewood is home to Northwest’s Child, a year round day program for children, teens and young adults with special needs. Northwest’s Child serves children with moderate to severe developmental and physical disabilities, except those with severe behavioral conditions or who are medically fragile. They have a diverse group of students with a wide range of disabilities, needs and interests. Day program activities include arts and crafts, music, individual and group activities, and daily field trips. They are in the community every opportunity they get as their goal is to provide independence, social skills, and building relationships with other students and staff to make for a smooth transition into adulthood.
We encourage the children and youth of Maplewood Presbyterian Church to serve others and to look beyond themselves as Jesus Christ called us to do in the Gospel. Following are just some of the ways our children and youth have served:
collecting food for food banks (for pets and people)
serving at the Maplewood Friday night community dinners
acting as ambassadors for the Souper Bowl of Caring to collect donations for social welfare organizations chosen by the kids
raising awareness for various Presbyterian special offerings programs.
Servanthood – on their level – is a continuing focus within our program.
