Welcome to the web site of Maple Leaf Lutheran Church! We are a Christian community located in the Meadowbrook neighborhood of North East Seattle. We are a group of caring people who come together in joy to worship Christ, serve others and love our community. We also have a lot of fun together and laugh a lot! (often at ourselves.) We would love for you to be a part of that! Come visit us some Sunday morning. Worship is at 10:30 am.
Check out this website or our Maple Leaf Lutheran Church Facebook page (where there are way more photos & very current news and information) and then come and be a part of our grace-filled community. All are always welcome!
Plan on joining us this Summer for the week of Monday, July 10 – Friday, July 14 as we host Lutherwood Bible Camp at Maple Leaf Lutheran Church (10005 32nd Ave. NE, Seattle) for a week long Day Camp (VBS.) We will meeting daily from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm in the Community Hall of Maple Leaf Lutheran Church. This event is for kids who will have completed kindergarten to completed 5th grade by this summer. Older kids can be "Jr. Counselors." All are welcome! It pays to register NOW: $150 before June 1, $175 after June 1. To register go to ReachOutChurch.org and click on the links on the left side of the page that say “Day camp info” and “Day Camp form.” Or you can contact Pastor Julie at

This year we MAY offer the option of a sort of “co-op after care” program from 3:30pm - 5:30pm, Monday through Thursday. If this is something you are interested in please let us know as soon as possible. If we have enough interest and enough parents willing to help one day that week we will be able to make it happen.

2016 marked our TENTH year participating in the Wedgwood Business District Trick or Treat event. We are so proud to be part of such a wonderful and generous community. Here are some photos from this year:
After worship on September 25 we compiled 100 sacklunches to give to the residents who stay 365 nights a year in the SHARE homeless sheltered hosted at Maple Leaf Lutheran Church (next year we'll celebrate the shelter being with us for 20 years!) And we took some to Tent City 3 as well. Thanks community for being the hands of God's work.
We had such an awesome Day Camp this summer! 24 kids, 6 junior counselors, 3 counselors and numerous volunteers made it so fun to learn about God, the church seasons and loving others. Hope to see you all, and many more, next summer. When we know the 2017 dates, we'll let you know.
For mulitiple years now we have marched in the Seattle Pride Parade to show the love of God and support for our LGBTQ+ neighbors. This year we had over 250 fellow Lutheran join us from congregations all across Seattle. What an awesome display of love!
This year we celebrate 20 years of being the host site for a SHARE (Seattle Houseing and Relief Effort) shelter. Every night for the past 20 years, up to 20 people experieincing homelessness have found a warm, dry place to spend the night at Maple Leaf Lutheran Church. They arrive at church at 9pm, use sleeping mats on the floor and get a good night sleep. We have other facilities for their use such as a kitchen and showers. We are so glad that we can assist in this small way and hope to be able to do so for years to come while at the same time we pray and work to end homelessness.
