Welcome to First Pres, Cuba!

Our mission is to continue to provide in this twenty-first century a worshipful atmosphere for people of all ages and backgrounds as well as a Christian Education program that encourages and strengthens the faith journey of each participant. Our outreach programs give aid and comfort to the lonely, aged, infirm, and others less fortunate within our community. We strive to increase public awareness through involvement in the local ministerial alliance and civic organizations.
