Why “Maggie’s”?

Why “Maggie’s”?

“Maggie’s” is named for Mary Magdalene, one of Jesus’ closest friends.  We don’t know a lot about Mary, but what we do know is that she cared about other people, and that she was a passionate follower of Jesus’ way.  Like him, she believed in inclusive hospitality, and a welcome for all people.

We try to reflect this at Maggie’s.  It’s a place to meet friends, and maybe make new ones.  It can be a quiet place for one or two, it can be a meeting place for a group.  Our hope is that it’s a place where all people are valued and made welcome.  For us, Maggie’s is a really important part of what it means to be a church following the way of Jesus.

But why “Maggie’s”?  Well, “Mary Magdalene’s” is a bit of a mouthful, so Maggie’s it became.  We hope it’s easier to remember!

Please relax and enjoy the Maggie’s experience.  We look forward to seeing you again soon.
