Our local food pantry is sponsored and operated by volunteers from all four Brewerton churches: Brewerton United Methodist Church, St. Agnes Roman Catholic Church, The Disciples of Christ Church, and the Calvary Baptist Church.
Deb Lombard serves as the Pantry Coordinator and is joined by a group of 10-14 volunteers who make up the pantry team. The food pantry is dedicated to providing nutritious food items along with household and personal care items to those families and individuals in need in the Brewerton area.
The Ft. Brewerton/Greater Oneida Lake Chamber of Commerce's 2013 Wine Tasting Event was a great success thanks to the donations from the businesses and the active participation of the attendees. Because of the success of this event the Chamber wanted to extend some financial support to a "need" within our Chamber auspices. After much discussion and thought, it was decided to make a donation in the amount of $500 to each of the food banks serving our area (Central Square School District). They were all very appreciative and expressed that there has been an increased need for the food banks this year. The coordinators stated that the donations would help greatly with the preparation of the holiday food baskets- as of this date they have need for over 225 baskets.
Pantry Hours of Operation: Tuesdays 10am-Noon, Thursdays: 4:30-6:30pm

The PoLM Center in Mattydale proudly houses the Easter Morning Clothing Closet. The Easter Morning Clothing Closet was started in 2013 to provide free clothing and household items to anyone who needs these items. Since its beginning the friendly, caring volunteers have greeted between 300 to 500 people per month. The Clothing Closet has clothing for babies, children, youth, women, and men of many sizes. The donations of clothing and household items are greatly appreciated and help to continue the Clothing Closet to remain free to all. Donations may be made at the PoLM Center or at the Brewerton United Methodist Church.
Clothing Closet Hours of Operation: Wednesdays 6-8pm, Thursdays 10:30am-12:30pm, and Saturdays 10am-1pm
The Community Dinner was started 2013 by a few hearty souls at Calvary United Methodist Church- now the PoLM Center in Mattydale. It continued for a few months before Pastor Alicia Wood realized we needed help from another church if the well attended dinner was to continue. Pastor Alicia reached out to Cicero United Methodist Church. They were happy to help and that relationship has continued to this day. We gladly serve all who come for free, although there is a free will offering for those wishing to contribute. The Community Dinner serves between 75 - 100 people and all those who attend enjoy the inviting, friendly atmosphere. The dinner relies on donations from Cicero and Brewerton United Methodist Churches.
Dinner is served one Thursday a month from 4:30-6pm please see PoLM calendar (here) for dates. See you for dinner!
We like to keep both our spirits and bodies in shape! See the Church Calendar (here) for an updated list of all the fitness activities we offer here at BUMC. All are welcome- your first class is always free and all class fees following that go towards Church missions.
We at the Brewerton United Methodist Church believe in helping one another. We are not a construction company, nor are we affiliated with a construction company. What we are is a group of people willing to volunteer our skills and some free time to help our friends and neighbors. We like to help people who need a little assistance to make their homes more accessible, warmer, safer, and liveable.
Who could use our help? It may be someone who is unemployed, sick, or injured. It may be someone who is older and no longer able to do the work. It may be a family who has special needs, such as a wheelchair ramp or grab handles in the bathroom. Or a single parent who needs help with painting or changing storm windows or screens.
The list of needs could be many and sometimes a little help may mean a fuller and more comfortable life for someone. If you feel you could use some of our assistance, please fill out the form to the right.
If you have a question regarding the Helping Hands/Healing Hearts Mission, please call the church at (315)668-3999 and leave a message.
