In response to CDC guidelines concerning Covid-19, Maples is no longer requiring people who are vaccinated to wear masks. We have also returned communal coffee to the information desk, and we have returned bibles and hymnals to the pews.

Get to Know Us

Greetings in Christ!

Remember the old television sitcom called, "Cheers"?  It was a show about a bunch of folks who regularly visited or worked at an area Boston bar.  One of the biggest characters was "Norm".  Every time Norm walked into that bar, everyone stopped their conversation and they all yelled in unison the greeting, "N-O-R-M!"  Remember the theme song to that show?  The chorus of it went like this.....

Sometimes you want to go
Where everybody knows your name,
And they're always glad you came;
You want to be where you can see,
Your troubles are all the same;
You want to be where everybody knows your name.

We here at Maples know people matter to God.  As a result they matter to us and it is our hope here at Maples you will know that from your first encounter whether it is a virtual visit or a drive upon the matter to us!  

My prayer is that Maples Church will be that place in your life where "everybody knows your name" and "they're always glad you came!".

Please check us out and contact us via phone, 662-895-2279, email, or email any of our staff so we can get to know you. 

We would love for you to get to know us.

In Christ,

Rev. Stephen Sparks
Lead Pastor
