Cuba Partnership

 

Four members of First Church traveled to Cuba in October 2016 to become familiar with the Presbyterian Church of Cuba and explore opportunities for partnership. A detailed report is available below; click here for a summary of the team's observations.

 

As a result of this trip, we have been exploring a potential partnership with the Iglesia Presbiteriana-Reformada of Los Palos, in the Havana Presbytery, and its mission church in Nueva Paz. First Church has joined the Cuba Partners Network, a group of reformed churches that encourage and support partnerships between Presbyterian churches in the United States and Presbyterian churches in Cuba. We are currently hoping to host the pastor of the Los Palos church, Rev. Izett Sama Hernandez, sometime in 2019. Rev. Sama has been named an International Peacemaker for the PCUSA Peacemaking Program and is awaiting a visa interview.
