We welcome all Women in the congregation to our meetings! The Presbyterian Church considers all women in the congregation to be part of the Presbyterian Women of Maxwell Street. How active you are is up to you! We would love to see you at our monthly meetings.
General meetings are held on the first Thursday of each month, September to May at 10:30am. Our first meeting of the fall will be September 7.
We will gather in Fellowship Hall for fellowship time then begin our new Bible study, Cloud of Witnesses, The Community of Christ in Hebrews. Melissa Bane Sevier, the author of the study, will lead the discussion on the first lesson, In Community with Jesus Christ. The main idea of the lesson focuses on Hebrews’ emphasis that Jesus, the Christ, is the basis of all of our faith and action, individually and as a faith community. Bible study books are available in the office. Cost is $10.
We will share lunch ($7) together then our speaker, Amy Daugherty, an attorney, will present a program on Elder Law topics. Amy, a member of Bluegrass Elderlaw, PLLC, focuses her practice on assisting older persons in qualifying for Medicaid long term care and with Wills, Powers-of-Attorney, Advanced Directives, and Trusts. She also advocates for clients before Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid agencies and defends against involuntary dismissal from long term care facilities.

Christmas is only 4 months away. The Presbyterian Women want to let you know that they will again be selling Schemer Pecans. Advanced sales will start the beginning of October. Keep this in mind when you start to plan your gift giving.
Mother/Daughter/ Son/ Friend/ Grandmother Luncheon
Sunday, September 24 following worship
Our first thoughts were to sponsor a Mother-Daughter luncheon. Then someone said what about sons? Or friends or grandmothers. So Presbyterian Women are sponsoring a post-church lunch for all of these folks! It will be a time of fellowship, conversation with good food and speaker. Our speaker will be Lou Anna RedCorn who will speak on her life and family connection with the Osage Nation. If you have never heard her speak on this subject, adults and children of all ages will find it interesting.
It will be short enough that the young will not get restless. Cost is_________. RSVP: church bulletin or office, 255-1074.
