International Missions at First Presbyterian partner with churches and missionaries around the world to serve with the poor and to proclaim God’s love. Our missions focus on: supporting Presbyterian missionaries, especially in the Caribbean and in Africa; sustaining a 20-year partnership between Foothills Presbytery and Kwahu-Tafo Presbytery in Ghana; sending annual medical mission teams to San Juan de la Maguana in the Dominican Republic; developing a sister-church partnership with the Presbyterian-Reformed Church of Santa Clara, Cuba; supporting Haiti development efforts through Haiti Outreach Ministries; supporting Precious Heritage Ministries orphanage, school, and feeding program for street children in the Philippines; Bread for the World; and leading our annual Witness Season campaign in support of an international mission project.

Haiti Mission Trip (January 11-18): Cost: $1,300
Participants in this construction and fact-finding mission will travel to Port-au-Prince to assist Haiti Outreach Ministries with on-going recovery efforts from the 2010 earthquake. We need helpers - the only skill required is willing hearts and hands.
Dominican Republic (February 1-8 or 8-15): Cost: $1,400
Our missions to the D.R. focus on medical, dental, and construction service. All adults and youth accompanied by adults are welcome. Surgeons, dentists, and medical professionals are needed, as well as team members ready to serve but with no medical or construction skills. There is enough work for everyone!
Cuba (May 14-21): Cost: $1,500
The FPC Cuba Mission Trip has been rescheduled May 14-21, 2014. The leadership of our sister church in Santa Clara is very excited about our upcoming visit. This trip is very different from any of our other mission trips because it will be about relationship building, providing support for our sister congregation, and learning more about Cuba.
Housing will be in Edificio Spartanburg – the building our Witness Season projects funded. Cost of the trip is $1,500 and is limited to 12 participants so sign up now.
God has been at work in Cuba for a long time. This is your opportunity to be part of that work.
Everyone is welcome and scholarships are available!
