Giving Opportunities

The point is this: he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must do as he has made up his mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

2 Corinthians 9:6-7 (NRSV) used with permission

There are many opportunities for giving at Oxford Presbyterian Church. First, we give our hearts to Christ and commit our lives to Christ’s service in the church, community and world. This site describes many ways we give ourselves in worship and service. The ministry of the church is also supported by the faithful financial giving of the congregation to the general budget and to special causes.

The Church Budget provides for the many programs and mission of the church. Members of the church are encouraged to make an annual pledge to the Christ’s mission through OPC.

Weekly Offering
There are many ways you can contribute financially to OPC. Those who make pledges or give regularly to the work of the church receive personal offering envelopes to facilitate their giving. If you would like to make a pledge or receive envelopes, please use the Online Contact Form or call the church office, (513) 523-6364.

  • Place your offering envelope / check / cash in the offering on Sunday morning
  • Mail your checks (please don’t send cash) to the church office:
    Oxford Presbyterian Church
    101 North Main Street
    Oxford, Ohio 45056

Remember, in order to receive the appropriate documentation you need for tax purposes your name and address must be clearly identifiable on your check or envelope.

 

Property Donation
You can donate stocks and mutual funds and other ‘property’ that often provide you with a double tax benefit (assuming the investment has appreciated and that you have held the stock for more than one year). By donating appreciated securities you avoid the capital gains tax faced when selling the stock, and the church pays NO capital gains tax when it sells the donated security. You should check with a tax professional before initiating any transfer of securities. If you would like to donate stock please contact finance@oxfordpresbychurch.org, use the Online Contact Form or call the church office at (513) 523-6364.

 

Special Offerings
Throughout the year, there are several opportunities to give to specific offerings and projects. Special seasonal offerings are received for:

  • “Souper Bowl” Offering — Super Bowl Sunday
  • One Great Hour of Sharing (World Relief) — Easter
  • Peacemaking — World Communion Sunday
  • Christmas Joy Offering — Christmas Eve

If you would donate to one of these offerings, envelopes are provided in the Sunday bulletin on the day of collection or you may use the Online Contact Form or call the church office,(513) 523-6364.

 

Flowers and Seasonal Decorations
Sanctuary Flowers are an important enhancement to our worship. They are given weekly to the glory of God and in honor or memory of loved ones. Giving flowers to the church is a simple process. There is a sign-up sheet just outside the Molyneaux Library Lounge. If you would like special wording in the bulletin regarding your floral gift call the church office, (513) 523-6364.

Seasonal Decorations are placed in the sanctuary during the Lent and Advent seasons. If you are interested in placing lilies, crocus, or hyacinth for Easter or poinsettias for Christmas, or in donating to the Special Music Fund during either of these seasons, look for the reservation forms in the Sunday bulletin, newsletter, or online at this site. For additional information use the Online Contact Form or call the church office, (513) 523-6364.
