The Honored Woman Award
Each year the Oxford Presbyterian Women present the Honored Woman Award to a special woman who has dedicated her time and talent to the work of the church.  The selection is made through nominations from the congregation.  If you have seen or worked beside a woman who has faithfully served the Lord and His church, please send a letter of nomination to Pat Gifford, at gifforp@miamioh.edu , drop in my mailbox at church, or send to 6511 Morning Sun Rd., Oxford, 45056.  A new letter of nomination is needed each year, even if a woman has been nominated previously.  We are so grateful for the continued service of our Past Honored Women; however the award is only given once to an individual. Other members of the Honored Woman Committee are Johanna Reinhart and Carol Burkhalter who will also gladly accept letters of nomination.  The deadline for submissions is March 1, 2018.
Where are the name tags?

While amazing things are happening to enhance our space, our name tags are taking a brief hiatus. The beautiful, wood holder is being stored as are the name tags themselves. We're also exploring creative and fun ways for future name tag use and storage. If you'd like your name tag, let Carol Klumb know and she'll get it back for you.

Thanks for your patience.
