Mission Trips

Mission trips can be life-changing experiences, providing as much benefit to those serving as those served. FirstChurch organizes and plans annual trips for youth, families and groups.

Currently, we offer two recurring global mission opportunities:

Methodist Children’s Home of Costa Rica

We have supported this global ministry for more than 10 years. Each year, both youth and adults travel to spend a week carrying out various projects at the Methodist Children’s Home, and getting to know the children and caretakers.


Our partnership with ZOE began in 2018 when we sent our first ambassadors to Rwanda. We now empower a group of children there called the “Heroes.”

Our global ministries are supported by the Rise Fund. For more information about our global trips, email Rev. Holly Bandel.
