Welcome to the website of Maple Avenue Bible Church!
It is our desire to help everyone develop a genuine relationship with God through a thorough understanding of His Holy Word as we continue to provide a solid Biblical foundation for all who attend.  We trust that God's love is seen in and through us as we endeavor to reflect the character of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Please see Kelsey or Sharon Smith if you plan to attend!
