Volunteers hold Vacation Bible School at area churches and do construction at the Methodist Children’s Home Orphanage.
For the past 25 years, Birmingham First has helped the Costa Rica Methodist Church build church buildings throughout the country. Since 2008, we have helped support Will and Ella Faircloth as missionaries and have sent VIM teams to assist in the construction of the Costa Rica Methodist Children’s Home. We continue a special relationship with Faro del Este Methodist Church in Mansiones by serving as a “sister congregation” to that church.
Members of our congregation are involved with this mission field all year long by making donations to either the Mansiones Church or the Costa Rican Methodist Children’s Home. The women of the Thursday evening group, Unfinished Christian Women, bake pies twice a year to help support the Home and many members of Birmingham First serve as “Guardian Angels” of the children at the Home.
