Our next Carranza Mission Trip is March 13-15. The minimum age for this trip is ten years old (sixth graders and under must be accompanied by a parent). Those who have already gone to Carranza with us can still sign up online HERE, or in the Foyer THIS Sunday, March 1, or at the meeting for ALL team members happening THAT afternoon in the Youth Room, from 3:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m. The final, mandatory meeting for ALL team members is Sunday, March 8, 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 cost is $75.00 ($70.00 per person with two or more from the same family) and covers five meals, gasoline, insurance, ministry resources, and supplies. You will need to bring extra money for two on-the-road meals.
The Carranza trip is a great opportunity to expand one’s awareness of the church outside of Corona and to see how the global body of Christ works together.
All team members must have a valid passport. Get the process started now at the Corona Public Library or the Post Office on Grand Avenue.
