Oxford YOUTH! is a multi-faceted effort to provide youth, ages 11 through 18, a place where they can be themselves. Youth can experience agape love, come to have a personal relationship with God, grow their knowledge of the Good News and God's love. They can also learn practical ways of making the faith of their family and church their own by applying that faith to their everyday lives. The Oxford UMC Youth Program is built on three pillars.
Worship - the relationship between God and the individual.
Fellowship - the relationship between the individual and the faith of the community.
Outreach - the relationship between the individual and the world at large.
