Ladies, break out your hats!  Tea and sandwiches will be served at the Presbyterian Women’s Spring Gathering on Sunday, May 7, after church.  Tea aficionado Betsy Maxwell, Linda Myer’s sister-in-law, will discuss tea traditions and her experiences with teas in England.  A short business meeting will be included.  Please RSVP to Nancy Hess (419-806-4788 or

Envelopes are available in the church office and/or on the Presbyterians Women’s table in the Fellowship Hall.


Kindred Spirits will meet on Monday, may 8 at 7 p.m. at the home of Linda Myers (1020 Gustin Ave). This is our last meeting until September and we will be winding up our study of “Who is Jesus” with a look at Contemporary cultural Interpretations. Please join us for study, food and fellowship.


Wine, Women, and Wisdom (WWW) is a group of women that meets once a month to enjoy each other’s company, share refreshments, and look for wisdom in our varied discussions. In addition to our fellowship and learning times, we’ve sponsored a number of events and service project around the church. We meet in someone’s home on the 2nd Tuesday of the month.  Our next get-together is on May 9th and a place yet to be determined.  Watch the bulletin, FaceBook, and your emails for upcoming announcements.
