Oxford United Methodist Church, or OUMC as we sometimes call it, is located on East Burdick Street just steps from downtown Oxford. As one of the oldest churches in the community, we have worshipped in Oxford since 1834.
Although we are a thriving congregation, we always welcome new members. And you’ll soon find that our idea of worship is much more than showing up on Sunday morning. We offer a great number of opportunities for you to develop your spiritual journey through fellowship, community service, and worship.
We have been part of the Oxford community since 1834 when our congregation began meeting in private homes. More than 160 years later, Oxford United has grown into what we have today. Read more.
What We Believe
OUMC takes part in the Stephen Ministry, a one-to-one lay caring ministry that equips and empowers lay caregivers—called Stephen Ministers—to provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care to people who are hurting.
A Stephen Minister usually provides care to one person at a time, meeting with that person once a week for about an hour. Twice a month, Stephen Ministers gather with their Stephen Leaders for supervision and continuing education.
Stephen Ministry multiplies blessings throughout the church and community.Congregations receive a practical and powerful way to respond to Christ’s commandment: “Love one another as I have loved you” (John 15:12 RSV).
Pastors have a team of gifted, trained, and committed lay caregivers ready to minister to hurting people.
Laypeople nurture and use their gifts in meaningful ministry, growing spiritually as they serve others.
People who are hurting have a compassionate companion—a caring Christian friend who provides emotional and spiritual support.
If you are hurting and would like the care of a Stephen Minister or would like to become a Stephen Minister please contact either Pastor Jennifer Jue or Jako van Blerk through the church office – 248-628-1289.
