NEW DATE! Our next Carranza Mission Trip is now November 15-17. If you’ve gone on a trip with us before, you can still up online HERE, or at the mandatory meeting for ALL Team Members happening THIS Sunday, October 27, in the Youth Room, from 3:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m.
Around Northpoint, everyone knows that Carranza is a “colonia” on the outskirts of Mexicali, Mexico. Carranza is the community that Mt. Sinai Baptist Church calls home. Carranza is where Pastor Antonio Camarillo lives and serves Jesus. As the pastor of Mt. Sinai Baptist Church, he leads the church in making and nurturing disciples in Carranza. Northpoint partners with Mt. Sinai Baptist church all year long, but twice a year we send a team from Northpoint to help in neighborhood evangelism, encourage the church family, and help church members build new relationships with the Carranza community. Our goal in supporting the Mount Sinai Baptist Church is to help them become more effective gospel “lights” in their community. Our intent is never to bring down the “show” with us but to support them in their ministry to their local community. It generally involves serving alongside our Mexican brothers and sisters in Christ as we share testimonies, perform service projects, hold carnivals, and present the gospel in all types of venues. Pastor Antonio is also heavily involved in starting new Awana clubs throughout Mexicali, as well as assisting in church plants; we help him with both as needed.
The minimum age for this trip is ten years old (sixth graders and under must be accompanied by a parent). Sign up for the trip in the Foyer October 13, or you can click here. And if this will be your first time with us, you’ll need to attend the First-Timers’ Meeting on Sunday, October 20, as well as team meetings on October 27 and November 10. All meetings are from 3:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m., in the Youth Room, Attendance is required!
