Risk Taking Mission
*Acts of Kindness

As part of our local outreach efforts, OPUMC has an emergency food ministry. The food items are distributed to people who contact the church for emergency aid.

In addition, special efforts are made at Thanksgiving and Christmas when we adopt local families in need, including the Angel Tree for gift giving.


Clara's Closet is a no-cost "Shop," serving 1,100+ low-income and refugee families in Buffalo. Clara's Closet is housed in the Central Park United Methodist Church, and OPUMC joins their effort by collecting items for their "store."

The contacts for OPUMC are

Candy (716-649-1654) and

Carolyn (716-648-1179).

Thank you for supporting this outreach ministry.

If you'd like more information about Clara's Closet ministry, email or go to their website.
