Cuba

Covenant’s Cuba ministry partnership is building long-term relationships with our Cuban brothers and sisters in Christ, particularly with the Presbyterian Church in the Havana barrio known as Luyanó.

Since 1994, members of both churches have bonded through Bible study, fellowship and service as we encourage our communities to follow Jesus wherever we live, work and play.

We also seek volunteers to contribute supplies such as over-the-counter medicines and baby goods, or to pray for those traveling.

CUBA MISSION TRIPS

Covenant usually schedules three trips to Cuba each year: 
  

1

Initial Immersion Experience
 

The Initial Immersion Experience Cuba Ministry trip takes place in late October or early November. Its mission, with the help of some of Covenant’s 202 Cuba veterans, is to introduce first-time CPC travelers to Christianity in Cuba. Covenant members receive preference for registration applications received from February to May, allowing time to prepare travel documents.

2

Vacation Bible School
 

The Vacation Bible School Cuba Ministry trip takes place in July. Its mission is to assist with VBS at Luyanó. This trip is intended for Cuba veterans. While any Covenant member may apply to assist with VBS, our sister church requests that assistants from Covenant have previously spent time with the church in Luyanó.

Traveling with Mission Presbytery

Traveling with Mission Presbytery to its sister Presbytery El Centro is a third opportunity for Covenant members. This trip visits a number of rural churches in central Cuba and does not include a visit to Covenant’s sister church. While participation is encouraged for Covenant Cuba veterans, any Covenant member may apply.
More information and application will be available later this spring.
