August 27th: Youth Group-Maxwell Street


Friends, If we have not had the chance to meet, I am Ryan Straw and my family and I are so excited about being a part of Maxwell Street P r e s b y t e r i a n Church! My work in ministry has taken me to some wonderful churches, all here in the central Kentucky area. It is great to be a part of a place that is so mission minded and so focused on what God has called us to do. Please make sure to stop me and introduce yourself on Sunday mornings or those times you are at MSPC. In the coming weeks, you will hear more about our plans for children’s and youth programming, including Sunday school times and teachers. Our program will be focused on learning about God and putting those lessons into action in Lexington and our surrounding communities. We have so much to give here at Maxwell Street. The children and youth program is one of the many lights our church can shine in our community. Peace and Grace, Ryan Sunday School Teachers for Children and Youth classes When I arrived at Maxwell Street, I was amazed at the number of people who volunteer to teach our children and youth. If you have ever taught Sunday School or always thought you may enjoy doing something like that, please reach out so we can begin to get you involved in the life of Christian education. Feel free to contact me at or 859-992-3079.
