Stephen Eyre is leaving on August 5 for a 4-month study leave in Oxford, England. Stephen heads up the C.S. Lewis Institute in Cincinnati and will study with the leading authority on the writings of C. S. Lewis. The church has provided Stephen with $2,500 a month for his study which will cover the cost of air fare, lodging and other expenses. If you would like to help Stephen financially, make your checks out to Madeira Silverwood Presbyterian Church and write “Stephen’s study leave” in the memo. Join us Sunday, August 4 after the service for lunch in fellowship hall to wish him a safe journey!
