|Each Sunday over two dozen children are fed breakfast before worship at our partner church in Guines, Cuba. These are meals many of the kids might not otherwise eat that day due to limited resources at home. Your generosity helps provide these meals.|
Every day over 300 local residents and church members are provided clean, purified drinking water for their homes by the church in Guines. This in a community which cannot guarantee clean drinking water. Your generosity helps power the church’s water purification system which prevents illness for our neighbors in Guines.
For over 25 Years MCC has partnered with our Cuban sisters an brothers in Christ to bridge divides and live our the gospel of Jesus Christ in Montauk and Guines.
Our Friends in Guinas have a web site. Please visit them at iglesia-presbiteriana-reformada-en-guines.org
Despite the lack of diplomatic relationships between the United States and Cuba, the Presbyterian churches in the US and Cuba have historically maintained a close relationship. At the time of the Cuban revolution in 1959, Cuba was part of the Synod of New Jersey, but in 1967 the Presbyterian-Reformed Church in Cuba (IPRC) was established as an autonomous denomination. A Mutual Mission Agreement adopted by the General Assemblies of both the US and Cuba celebrates the unity of Christ, a common Reformed tradition, and the sharing in “one Lord, one faith, and one baptism.”
The Presbytery of Long Island and the Presbytery of Cuba have maintained a connection over these years. The Montauk Community Church partnered with a church in Guines, an agricultural town just south of Havana. Members of the Guines church have visited Montauk many times over the past 10 years, and members of the Montauk Community Church have traveled to Cuba.
Some of the mission projects include: providing tuition/room & board for seminary students; leadership training; and a second floor addition to Christian Education building in Guines.
