The UMW Mission Circle is the official organization for women who choose to participate in United Methodist MISSIONS locally, nationally, and internationally. We are a community of women whose purpose is to know God and to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ; to develop a creative, supportive fellowship; and to expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church.

LHUMC supports a weekly breakfast on Saturday mornings at the Trinity Center at First United Methodist Church (downtown Panama City). Doors open at 7 am, relationships are built with those who do not have a permanent place to live, while giving them a chance to enjoy a hot meal. Most weeks there is access to a shower trailer, computer lab, complimentary haircuts, and hygiene kits. Members of LHUMC support this breakfast on an occasional basis (quarterly, other) but volunteers are welcome at the breakfast any weekend. Contact email@example.com to see when LHUMC members are scheduled to help again. Contact Dr. Ted Wilson at firstname.lastname@example.org who organizes the breakfast weekly to volunteer directly.
