Clothing Ministry

Martha's Closet

In 2017 we made a major shift in our Clothing Ministry. We moved our Clothing Ministry to a new location and formed a partnership between formally Forest Park UMC and Huntertown UMC.

Martha’s Closet is a referral based ministry, that provides clothing to those who are in need. Guests must be referred by an agency/church/school.

Following completion of the referral form you will receive confirmation prior to our next open date.
