Our Church History
In 1880, the church began holding annual clambakes in the grove behind the carriage sheds. These clambakes became a very popular event and drew many people from far away. To this day, you can still find clam shells under the dirt behind the church. It was a rich part of our history that brought the community together for years. Records show that in the mid to late 1800s, there were almost 500 names on the membership roll at Maple Root.
Over these many years, we’ve grown as a church body. We believe that the Lord still calls us to grow our church together and spread the good news of salvation. Please see our outreach section of the website for some of the ways we try to grow and remain a vital part of the local community. As we realize the power of our God and the need of this fallen world, “let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near” (Hebrews 10:24-25).
