“To every thing there is a season,

and a time to every purpose under the heaven.”

Ecclesiastes 3:1

April is US tax season and a time of the year to take stock on our personal and family finances. How much money (salary or pension or investment dividends) did we make last year? How much did we spend on vacations and luxuries last year? How much did we give to our church and charities last year? How much do we owe to the government this year?

If God’s Church was run like the US government tax system, then we would be sending out forms and bills too. But God’s Church functions on the generosity of Christians who give generously of their time, talents, and financial resources. Oxford United Methodist Church and its mission and ministries, its children and adult education programs, its pastor and staff salaries, its building and parsonage upkeep, all depend on generous Christian givers. We hope that you have made a weekly (or monthly) financial commitment (a pledge) to God’s Church and its ministries to help people in need. “God loves a cheerful giver.”

Monthly Need $ 12,590.00

Budget for 2017 $151,081.00

Thank you for your faithful giving!
