God is on the Move

Volunteering

 
Volunteers are a driving force for Oxford UMC.  Volunteering is important because of the many roles needed to keep our church running smoothly.  Each Sunday, volunteers greet, usher, teach, pray, read, and listen.  Volunteers assist in the Church office during the week.  Church volunteers also help those in our community who suffer or have needs they cannot meet themselves.
Where can YOU help out?  Opportunities are always available.  Below are just some of the opportunities available.  Contact our Church office at 210-696-0192; we can help find the right place for you.
