Important Covid-19 Protocol Update


In response to the rapid rise in Covid-19 cases in DeSoto County, particularly for children, the Maples Leadership Team has elected to make the following changes to our protocol:


-We have returned to roping off every other row in the sanctuary in order to increase social distancing. Please do not sit in a roped off row and please do not remove the ropes.


-Children under the age of 12 will be required to wear their mask indoors unless they are in the sanctuary and socially distanced with their family group. Children under the age of 2 will not be required to wear a mask. Teachers of classes with children under 12 in them should also wear a mask while in the classroom.


-Children aged 2-4 participating in the Maples Learning Center's preschool program do not have to wear a mask. However, school-aged children participating in the MLC's after school program WILL be required to wear a mask.


-As always, Maples encourages everyone to acquire a Covid-19 vaccine or wear a mask if they choose not to. You can find more information on Covid-19 vaccines here.

Getting Connected

If you visit Maples’ Sunday morning worship services, please complete the yellow Visitor/Guest card which is included in your bulletin.  You will receive information regarding any areas of interest marked.

Taking part in Sunday and mid-week study and service groups is another great way to make a solid connection at Maples.

On your first visit to a Maples Sunday Morning Worship Service, be sure to stop by our visitor's table. You'll be offered a copy of 8-15: The World is Smaller Than You Think, which outlines the Oikos Principle, a guiding principle for Maples' Mission.
