Serving the World


“And Jesus will answer them, ‘Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.’” - Matthew 25:40

Maxwell Heights is involved in the community in a number of ways. We take regular collections of food for InterServ and hygiene items for Haven House, a local shelter. We make sack lunches for the Open Door Food Kitchen and help our friends at Woodson Chapel with their Monday Meals. Each year, Maxwell Heights participates in St. Joe Serve—a coalition of local churches from different denominations who repair homes for families in local neighborhoods–and the CROP Walk, a fundraiser for Church World Service. Folks at this church know that we are richly blessed and are always looking for more and different ways to share what we have with others. Whether it’s raising money or donating time or taking care of each other, this is a congregation of people who care.

Each year, we sponsor an Easter Egg hunt and other fun events for the kids in our church and neighborhood. There’s also a fall festival, featuring games, hayrides, good food, and pie in the pastor’s face!


 ”Do not worry about anything, but in everything, by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.” – Philippians 4:6

We believe in the power of prayer and the promise of healing. Our prayer band meets every Thursday morning at 10:00—in the Faith House behind the church—to lift up prayer requests known and unknown. Each Sunday, we lift up prayers in church. We share the requests we have and the joy of answered prayer. In times of serious need, we wrap our friends and members in a blanket and pray over them, so they can carry our petitions for healing whereever they go. Prayer and healing are both important aspects of our mission to the world.

We invite you to join us in thanksgiving, praise, joy, and supplication on both Thursday and Sunday mornings. Please come! For more information, contact Helen Koch at
