ACTS – Aiding Community Through Service

North Olmsted UMC participates with several other churches in the North Olmsted Area in this organization whose primary purpose is to support the North Olmsted Oxcart Food Pantry.  Participating churches rotate what items they will collect to help stock the shelves. NOUMC’s schedule is as follows:

  • March – Canned Meat and Fish
  • April – Peanut Butter

It is our goal to always collect at least seventy items each month.  Additionally, NOUMC has taken the lead in providing toilet paper to the Pantry at all times.

In addition to food items, ACTS provides a vehicle for churches to discuss their respective Community Meals and other successes and challenges within their congregations and outreach/mission programs.
