Cuba's water is calling you!
More than the warm, inviting Caribbean Sea…
More than the mouthwatering taste of freshly baked island bread…
God’s living water and the fire of His Holy Spirit calls to us from Cuba!
Suntree UMC has a covenant with two Methodist Churches in Cuba. Their members have become “our” family, and we are “theirs.”

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 for the spiritual and political leaders in both our countries.
Provide Supplies: Our teams take suitcases of over-the-counter (OTC) medications and many other needed items on the annual trips to Cuba (usually in January). You can help by donating items from the “Needs List”, which can be obtained from the church office, our two Cuba Mission bulletin boards found outside of the Worship Center and Sanctuary, or from a committee member. You can then bring your donated items to a committee member or the church office. Please make sure it is marked ‘Cuba Missions’. Please note that we cannot accept prescription medications and that OTC medications cannot expire before the next January, since expired medications cannot be brought into Cuba.
Support financially: We have two events each year to help us raise funds for our Cuba Missions and to also provide updates on this mission to our congregation and supporters. Aldersgate Sunday, in which we have a special offering, is held in May, and our annual Cuba Dinner is held in September. We also accept and appreciate donations throughout the year. If you would like to donate cash or write a check, you mail it to, or drop it off, at the church office, or put it into the offering on Sundays. Please make sure your donation is marked ‘Cuba Missions’. Thank you for your continued support and please know that travelers to Cuba pay for their own travel, lodging and meals, so that every penny donated goes directly to support our Cuba Missions.
Membership: Prospective members are always welcome to attend monthly Cuba Mission meetings at 7:00 PM via Zoom.
