Organic Missions and Outreach

Oak Creek Community UMC Food Pantry

The church maintains a year-round food pantry to help members of the church who are in need of assistance.  The majority of the donations are provided by the members of the church. The church has also been the recipient of food from some school food drives. Some of the donations are shared with the Oak Creek Salvation Army and Interfaith.

Our Harmony Club

We are very excited to host Our Harmony Club at our church which offers respite care for the caregivers in our community.  Our Harmony Club offers a social day program, at an affordable price, so caregivers can take time to themselves. Our Harmony Club is the only affordable social day program in all of WI and it's 98% volunteer based.

It is quite amazing to see all the care and love people do have for one another. These seniors are often forgotten and this program allows them to engage their minds and feel important while their personal caregiver gets a rest to refuel their mind body and soul.

Summerfield United Methodist Church - Milwaukee, WI 

Summerfield UMC has been conducting a weekly meal outreach program in the upper east side for the homeless and lonely since 2011.  They provide meals on Saturday evenings, because there are no other programs in the area on that night.  It was totally handled by a team at SUMC the first year, but now a number of other churches and organizations offer assistance by preparing meals, setting up, serving, fellowship with the guests, and/or clean up. Visit their website for more information: www.summerfieldchurch.org/mealoutreach/ .

South Shore Regional Interfaith - South Milwaukee, WI

Interfaith Older Adult Program’s South Shore Regional Neighborhood Outreach Program  focuses on helping those 60 and older with the assistance of over 200 volunteers and 20 church congregations.  They provide transportation to appointments and shopping, make friendly visits and phone calls, do minor home chores, help provide meals, and take part in organizing social events for over 900 clients.  Our church provides financial support, collects canned goods for the annual Christmas bag deliveries, and drivers. We also sponsored their Senior Christmas party in 2014.  Contact Laura at the Interfaith office, 414-762-1998 for more information on how you can help.  There is always a need for more volunteers.
