OPEN M is a comprehensive, faith-based ministry that helps people throughout the greater Akron area meet the spiritual and physical challenges of living with scarce resources. UMCM has been a covenant church with Open M for about 50 years. This means that we support them financially and work to make all their programs a success. They have a free clinic, a food pantry, pre-school programs, and programs for teenage girls and boys as well as a program to help people find and keep jobs and move from poverty.  They also serve free lunches to the community.
