Oxford Presbyterian Women (OPW)
“Forgiven and freed by God in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit Oxford Presbyterian Women commit themselves to nurture their faith through prayer and Bible study, to support the mission of the church worldwide, to work for justice and peace, and to build an inclusive, caring community of women that strengthens the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and witnesses to the promises of God’s Kingdom.”

Oxford Presbyterian Church offers women many opportunities to meet in groups — for fellowship, Bible study, service, and friendship.
Special programs of varied content are scheduled September through June. These gatherings include a Fall meeting focused on missions, a Christmas program, a Spring Friendship Brunch and a June Retreat. Please check the Gathering Calendar for the time and place of each meeting. Gatherings are open to anyone interested.
Smaller groups of women meet monthly, excepting December, July, and August, for Bible study and fellowship. New members are always welcome. The Tuesday Evening Circle meets the first Tuesday of the month in different members homes at 7:30 pm. The Tuesday afternoon Circle meets the third Tuesday of the month at 1:30 pm in the Knolls Country Kitchen. Visitors are welcome to come to our Circle meetings!
There are a number of fundraiser events organized and carried out by OPW. All in the congregation are encouraged to participate as they can. Proceeds and items made are used for mission work throughout the church and community. Fundraisers include:
- Rummage and Boutique Sales are held in the Fall and the Spring.
- Cookie Walk and Craft Sale in December.
- Bed and Breakfast hosting of parents of college students during Miami University’s Parents’ Weekend in October and Commencement in May.
