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.

We will be hosting two parent meetings THIS SUNDAY, August 30th. If your child is a part of youth ministry at Maples or if you wish for them to be, please make every effort to be at these meetings. We are excited to launch our youth ministry programming for the Fall semester and we need your support!

Due to space limitations, the meetings will be staggered as follows:

High School (9th-12th) parents will meet at 4:30pm

Middle School (6th-8th) parents will meet at 5:30pm

The meetings will take place in Room 118, utilizing our social distancing protocols. Masks are required to be worn inside the building.

If you cannot attend, please let Joel Garrott, our Pastor to Students and Families, know as soon as possible by e-mailing him at

We look forward to seeing you on Sunday afternoon!
