Presbyterian Women

Come join us for our October meeting of the Women of Maxwell Street Presbyterian Church.  We would love to see you at our monthly meetings.  If you are new to Maxwell Street or recently available during the day, we would love to have you join us so we can get to know you.

General meetings are held on the first Thursday of each month, September to May at 10:30am. Our next meeting will be October 5.  Come at 10:15 for coffee and pastries and chatting with friends

We will gather in Fellowship Hall for fellowship time then the Bible study, Cloud of Witnesses, The Community of Christ in Hebrews.  Rev. Greg Kupar, will lead the discussion on the second lesson, In Community with the Living God. Lesson two reminds us that God lives both in us and among us, and that this living God supports who we are and how we live.  Bible study books are available at the meeting for $10.
