To the best of my knowledge, ALL of our beloved members are well at the present time.
I pray that this will continue, and ask that you continue to stay in contact with me and with one another, holding us all in prayer.
UPDATE: In-person Sunday worship at 10:30am has resumed. You may continue to join us on Facebook or subscribe to our YouTube channel (Central Park UMC) every Sunday and Wednesday.
UPDATE: Clara's Closet is open to clients on Wednesdays and Thursdays, BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. Go to Clarascloset.info and select the blue "Message" bar to schedule your next visit. Social workers, case workers, and personnel from resettlement agencies can email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule.
Clara's Closet no longer accepts donations of clothing or household goods. We gladly accept monetary donations, along with donations of hygiene products, new socks or underwear (all ages, all genders, all sizes).
12 Step Recovery Groups may continue to meet on-site provided they adhere to a fifteen person maximum. Mask use is mandatory, and seating is designed for appropriate social distancing.
If you are not able to attend in person, I ask that you prayerfully consider mailing your tithes and offerings directly to the church office at Central Park UMC, 216 Beard Ave., Buffalo, NY 14214.
OR donate using PayPal on our website (add a couple of bucks extra to cover the processing fee).
If our finance team is able to process pledges and make deposits, we can minimize any disruption to the financial life of our church.
In the meantime,
Stay prayerful & positive.
And stay connected to your church family as we weather this storm together.
May your faith continue to strengthen and sustain you, in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.
In peace and love,
