Members of the Mississippi Conference were present to celebrate the opening of the Methodist Children's Homes Owens Home on Tuesday, October 21, 2014 in Jackson.
Since 1896, the Methodist Children's Homes has sought to serve God's children and families by providing safe homes, influencing futures and healing hearts and minds with Christian care. The goal of the Methodist Children's Homes is to save at-risk children by providing a healing experience in a healing environment, where each hurting child regains trust in self and others along with trust in God who knows each one and loves each one without reservation.
Delphine Swanson, who is the wife of the Resident Bishop for the Mississippi Area United Methodist Church, Bishop James Swanson Sr., is a member of the Children's Homes board of directors. She attended the dedication ceremony along with the Rev. Dr. Connie Shelton, the director of connectional ministries and communications for the Mississippi Conference and Vickie White, the conference East Jackson District superintendent.
