Short Term USA Work Team

Local mission trips & opportunities are generally in the immediate area (Mobile/Baldwin counties) or in the Southeastern United States.

Costa Rica

In Costa Rica we work in a small community called Palmares.  We are helping to build a Methodist church for the community and we work with the children by providing Vacation Bible School activities. We also hand out food bags to needy families in the community.  In the future we would like to partner with the church and community by helping them with school uniforms and by providing snacks for their children on Sunday morning.


In Ecuador we are working on Sunday School rooms for a church in Villaflora.  After the classrooms are completed the children of Villaflora will be able to participate in the Compassion International sponsorship program.  This sponsorship allows them to have daily meals, attend school, have medical care and be taught about the love of Christ.  We work in conjunction with S.I.F.A.T. (Servants in Faith and Technology) a mission organization from Alabama.  We hope to partner with S.I.F.A.T to build a daycare for children in one of the many poor villages.  Each afternoon there is an opportunity to work with some of the local shoeshine boys who range in age from eight to fourteen.  The shoeshine boys ride a bus into the city and shine shoes to help make money for their families.  We are able to help them with clothes, food, and sports activities in the afternoon.  Ecuador is a beautiful country and on a clear day you can see several snow capped volcanoes that are visible in Quito.
Check out what our missionaries in Ecuador, Ronni and Nanny, are doing these days by following their Facebook page HERE.

Uniform Closet

The Uniform Closet will be open on the first Tuesday of each month from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. The Uniform Closet will also be accepting phone orders only through the church office. Requests for school uniforms will then be filled with what we have available and participants will receive a call to set up an appointment time to come to the church office and pick them up.

The Uniform Closet is a service opportunity that gives us a way to reach out to our community in love by providing the basic educational needs of Baldwin County school uniforms and supplies. There are three ways you can help!

Annual Open House – at the beginning of every school year, the Uniform Closet holds an Open House. It is usually on a Saturday during the morning and volunteers are always needed before and during the event. *Due to Covid this may change or not occur. Please check with the church office.

Donate Clothing – We are in need of clean uniform items in good condition. If you have uniform donations or returns, you can drop them off at the church office during regularly scheduled office hours. If you have any questions, please call the office or email ministries@spanishfortumc.org.

If you would like to volunteer with the Uniform Closet, please contact the church office at 251-626-1334.
