Missions at Lewis Center UMC

We strive to put our faith into action and to be the hands and feet of Jesus in the world.  We follow Christ's example by sharing the story of God's love, feeding the hungry, clothing the poor, encouraging the disheartened, healing the sick, befriending the outcast, etc.  At Lewis Center UMC we give our time and energy as well as our resources.  We encourage our children and youth to participate in serving others, thus developing a compassionate heart in tomorrow's world leaders.  Get your whole family involved in serving others!

People in Need, Delaware COuntry

“We help Delaware County residents with immediate emergency needs possibly created by job loss, break-up of the family, illness, death, or other unexpected financial emergencies. We do not believe we are solving all of the people's problems by simply handing out food or paying utility bills. We see the immediate emergency need as a symptom and not the problem. Our role is to provide assistance with the immediate need and to take a look at the total needs of the family unit.”

Imagine No MalariA

“Unlike many other diseases that are awaiting a cure, malaria was eliminated in the U.S. in the 1950s. However, in Sub-Saharan Africa, malaria continues to kill a person every 60 seconds. But there is hope! Imagine No Malaria is part of a global partnership and together with our partners, our generation can beat malaria once and for all.”

Common ground free store

“What is a Free Store? It’s a place where everything is free—clothing, shoes, diapers and linens, to small appliances, books and toys.  There are no income requirements, no questions and no scrutiny; only the support of people who care. God’s mercy does not come with a price tag.

Common Ground Free Store Ministries is a partnership between Delaware County churches, business, civic organizations and caring citizens. “
