Lunch Bunch will meet only in September, November, March and May, which is one meeting per church per year.
The Community Vacation Bible School will be held at Oxford Presbyterian Church this year. The dates are Sunday June 26- Friday July 1. The theme will be "The Great Treasure Hunt". Helpers and teacher are needed! Also, we need paper towel tubes. Contact Kari if you would like to help out !!
On the first Sunday of each month Oxford Church collects the 4 Cents A Meal Offering. This offering supports two local needs: the Community Table which offers a free-will offering meal every week at the RARA building located next to the hospital, and the local Food Pantry for purchase of food items to stock their shelves. Oxford also accepts donations of food and personal items for the Food Pantry. For June we request donations of canned fruits
The Oxford Session has established a Pastor's Discretionary Fund which the pastor can use as he deems necessary to help individuals in desperate need. This will be funded by donations only. If you would like to contribute to this fund please write the check to Oxford Presbyterian Church and write "Pastor's Discretionary Fund" in the memo.
There are copies of "Celebrate Effinger 1922-2010" by Clinton Anderson still available. Contact Evelyn Ayers.
The Oxford website contains a calendar with Oxford Happenings, community events and birthdays of Oxford’s members. If you do not want your name to be listed on the date of your birthday (month and day only) please contact Susan or Rusty Keith.
If you happen to take any pictures at Oxford events please share them with the website editorial team so the pictures may be used on the Oxford website!
Please assist Rev. Douty in his pastoral work by informing him when you or your friends need his particular attention, or when you simply desire a prayer in your home.....day or night.
