Serving in the World
Serving in the World means crossing barriers to go and seek out what God is doing in the World. We seek to follow where God is going, hoping to live into what it means to love in extraordinary ways.
The Cuba Missions Committee, which was started in 2002, is a subcommittee of the Suntree United Methodist Church (SUMC) Commission on Missions. The SUMC Cuba Missions Committee is in the Atlantic Central region of the Florida Conference and is supported by Methodists United in Prayer (MUIP).
The purpose of the SUMC Cuba Missions Committee is to support our two sister churches in Cuba (El Redentor and Ojo de Agua), and their established missions, by sending mission teams annually to Cuba, by supplying funds and goods needed for congregational care and general operations, and by providing continuous prayer and communication.
Cuba Committee meetings - 2nd Tuesday of the month, 7pm in Room 108 at SUMC
How you Can Help:
- Pray for the people of Cuba and our sister churches! Pray for their health, their daily struggles, that they will have enough food to feed their families today, and most of all, pray for the leadership of our two countries so that conditions will improve.
- Provide supplies when we get ready for mission trips. Obtain a “Needs List” from one of our bulletin boards or a Cuba committee member and provide one or more of the items to the church office.
- Provide financial support: Support our two annual fundraisers (Aldersgate in May and our Cuba Dinner in September) or you can support this mission anytime throughout the year! It’s as easy as writing a check to SUMC and putting “Cuba Missions” in the memo line.
