Among the churches to receive funds for feeding ministries from the 2019 Memphis Conference Lenten Hunger Offering are New Hope and Wiley Chapel United Methodist Churches, in Mansfield and Paris, Tennessee, respectively.

The funds are from a portion of the offering that was awarded to the Tennessee River District where the two churches are located. Rev. Jimmy Carter,who serves both churches, presented checks to the treasurers of the two churches.
