UUMC Open Door Ministry

Open Opportunity



For over 30 years our Open Door Ministry has sought to feed our unhoused friends. We welcome them, greet them, and host them, giving to them all the dignity that God gives to all of Their creations. We belive doing this is an encounter with the divine, and we are not complete as human beings unless we are personally involved in such a service. There are many ways to serve at Open Door both big and small.
