GO AND GROW: Colima, Mexico

Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us. -Ephesians 5:1-2


We work with one of the 12 Hogar de Amor orphanages in or near the city of Colima, Mexico. Colima is 2.5 hours south of Guadalajara and about an hour from the Pacific Ocean. The Hogar de Amor group of orphanages is a ministry of the Grupo Amor Church in Colima, Mexico and the surrounding area.  Grupo Amor actively seeks to protect and care for vulnerable children in their area and welcomes the partnership of other churches to come alongside their congregation to serve the children of Hogar de Amor.

The beauty of a learning-based orphan care mission trip is that all ages and skillsets are valuable and useful. An open heart is your most important asset. Skills in teaching, leading craft projects, sports, and music are invaluable as we form relationships with the children of Hogar de Amor. Work projects are based on the skill set of the group and often include light construction projects, general maintenance, sewing and mending, electrical and plumbing work, and the omnipresent painting projects that naturally accompany homes with so many children. This trip is open to adults and accompanied children age 9 and older.


If you are unable to join us in Colima but have a passion for supporting the ministry, below are a few key ways you can partner with us.

Pray! Lift us and those within Hogar de Amor up in prayer. 

Help provide supply donations for the trip.  We are collecting coloring and activity books, colored pencils,  kitchen towels, hair brushes and barrettes, first aid supplies and medicines, and all sizes of children's and young adult underwear and socks.  You can give these items to Jamie or anybody going on the trip. If you are a regular attender of CenterPoint Church we will also have specific donation requests in the lobby before and after church in March.

Financially support the trip's projects and the orphans of Hogar de Amor.  We will use these donations to purchase supplies for the trip and will donate the rest directly to the orphanage, so everything you give will help and encourage the kids of Hogar de Amor! You can make checks out to CenterPoint Church with a memo of "Mexico trip" and bring checks to church or mail them to the CenterPoint offices. Click the link to donate online.
