Options for Receiving the Spires


The Oxford United Methodist Church Spires newsletter may be obtained in several different ways:

  • Viewed or downloaded online with a Google Account.
  • Emailed to your email account (PDF format).
  • Mailed to your USPS postal address.
  • Pick up a copy in person at the church.

Currently, for privacy reasons, electronic and USPS delivery of the Spires is limited to confirmed church members. Church leadership is discussing whether access may be allowed in the future to regular non-member attendees, and prospective members.

Online download is limited to the Spires issues for the current calendar year. For past years issues, please see All Spires Issues.

To register for online download, email, or USPS delivery, please register using the Spires Access Request Form.

Please email webmaster@oumc.org with any questions.
