Staff Christmas Offering
Our OUMC staff provide many services to our church operations, the people in our OUMC family and beyond. They always go the extra mile. Again as we engage in the Christmas Season we ask you to consider giving a cash contribution to our staff as our gift to them for their dedication. Donations may be mailed (PO Box 757), dropped off to the church office, or left during in-person worship on Sunday mornings. Make checks payable to OUMC and note the memo space Staff Christmas Offering. We thank you for your continuing generosity. Merry Christmas.
