Rancho Santa Marta Trip

Not for Youth, but for the Young at Heart!

For more than a decade now, our Senior High youth have been traveling to the
orphanage at Rancho Santa Marta, Mexico for a week of service and learning,
fellowship and faith. But "mission" isn't just for kids! It's for God's people of
all ages. This fall Pastor John will be leading an adult trip to Rancho Santa Marta,
to visit the ranch and help with various projects, involving building, painting, sewing,
or cleaning! There will also be plenty of time for fellowship, eating out in
Ensenada or a near-by-town, and enjoying interaction with the many children
and programs at the ranch. This eight-day trip begins on Sunday afternoon,
November 1. Speak with Pastor John if you'd like more information, or
email him at This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it .
