Who We Are
At Maplewood Church, we love to teach God’s Word to kids! “Engaging People, Discovering Jesus, Transforming Lives” jumps into action as we provide your child with a safe, compassionate environment where the Bible is taught through interactive lessons.
What We Do and When We Meet

Big Arrows for 5 & 6 year olds (K & 1st grade) is where the scriptures come to life through dramatic reenactments, science experiments, or creative games. An adaptation of “Route 52 Explore Bible Stories” is used for this class.
- Bible Voyagers ~ Sundays at 10:30 a.m.
- Children ages 7 through 9 (2nd & 3rd grade) board a life-sized boat and set out on a journey to read and navigate God’s Word. In addition to reading The Young Reader’s Bible, the children practice locating Scriptures in The Children’s International Bible. Adapted from “Route 52 Follow the Bible”, the children’s journey includes hands-on activities that help children apply biblical truth to their lives in an unforgettable way.
