Costa Rica 

Costa Rica Mission Trip 

We are so pleased at AUMC to announce a new opportunity for service!  The team of missioners to Palmares, Costa Rica works with a local Methodist church and leads VBS activities for the children of Palmares and the surrounding communities. This mission trip is a great “introduction” to international mission work because Costa Rica is a beautiful, safe, easy and fun country to begin what might be a lifelong journey into the mission field.


June 24 – July 2, 2018
If you are beginning to wonder what the perfect gift for your loved ones might be this Christmas, consider giving them a brand new outlook on the world.  What? How? Giving the gift of an opportunity to grow closer to God and to others through service is really the “perfect” gift for everyone on your list.  On June 24, 2018, we will be leaving AUMC to serve the beautiful people of Palmares, Costa Rica.  The cost will be around $1,200.  Setting aside just $200 a month from now until May will be enough to send your loved one on the trip of a lifetime.  Think about it – and don’t hesitate to call me, Alicia Smith, for additional information or to talk about the trip at 334-546-7233.  The first informational meeting is scheduled for Sunday, January 14, 2018 in the Mathison Lobby following each morning worship service.
