Caring for People
Lebanon UMC believes we have a responsibility to care for people in need in our community and around the world. Through the United Methodist Church we reach missionaries in some of the highest poverty conditions in the world. We also support orphanages so children without food and parental support have a place to live and someone to care for them.
Park View is a community outreach at Parkview UMC in Lynchburg. Local people that need food. Clothing, educational opportunities, or homeless receive the support they need. Each year special offerings are taken to support this ministry.
