Across the world, as a global faith community, members of the United Methodist Church support missionaries working at home and abroad. At First United Methodist Church in Conway, supporting missionaries is central to our core beliefs.
Redbird Mission and Clinic
Located in the Appalachian region of Kentucky, Redbird Mission and Clinic was started in 1921 to meet the needs of the people in this isolated, distressed area. The mission offers support in the areas of education, health and wellness, community outreach, economic opportunity and community housing improvement. The needs in this rugged, mountainous terrain are critical to combat chronic poverty, lack of jobs and poor housing. A school, medical and dental clinic and a craft marketing program are a few of the opportunities offered to the people of the region served by the Redbird Mission.
