In 1999 a Cuban Presbyterian visiting his aunt here in Colorado Springs joined First Pres for worship. He was invited to attend the Becomers Sunday School class. He developed relationships with members of the class, and those eventually led to a partnership with the First Presbyterian Reformed Church of Havana in 2009.
First Presbyterian Reformed Church of Havana (FPRCH) was formed in 1890 and the sanctuary built in 1906 to serve the middle class of Havana City. This downtown area has become an urban setting with a rich, diverse population. FPRCH serves their neighborhood with dynamic ministries that include a free lending library of books and videos, youth music and baseball activities, the Friendly Phone ministry which may include ongoing personal counseling, the School for the Elderly offering enrichment activities, Bible study and prayer groups. They have offer a Tai Chia exercise program as a way to improve one’s health, but also become acquainted with the church. These ministries are strategic and unique, and give access to much needed encouragement and social engagement.
In many ways, the Church in Havana is the forgotten church. So, in February or March of each year, our church takes a team to Havana to continue to develop a ministry of ‘being’, presence and relationship with our Cuban friends. We participate in their bible studies, worship services, pray together and demonstrate our genuine interest and support by coming to visit. It is always a privilege to return and share with others what the Lord is doing in the lives of our fellow followers of Jesus. We also have the opportunities to go visit other churches outside of Havana to understand how God is working in this unique country.
If you are looking for a ministry of relationship building, by letting the Lord express Himself through your presence and simply being with brothers and sisters in Christ, please contact the missions office at 884-6108 for more information.
MonGOlia – supporting and enabling the exciting ministry of this first-generation church as we GO to mutually share our unique gifts and abilities.
