Cuba First Baptist strives to reach out to the families and friends of the community and the area. Some of our diaconate board members take communion to those who are unable to attend a service. Visiting our shut-ins and seniors has proven to be a valuable eye into the life of the church and the community. Our pastor and visits not only those unable to attend church, but also takes his hospital ministry to those in the hospital and extended care units of the area. Should you or any of your family experience a hospital visit.. please call the church office at 585-968-1531. New privacy law prohibits hospitals from releasing names of patients, so we have to depend on friends and family to get the word out.
Monthly worship teams also take a brief Sunday service to both Cuba Skilled Nursing facility and Underwood Manor assisted living facility. Our love and respect for our elders is a key ingredient to a rich and fulfilling life at Cuba First Baptist.
Annually the church participates in “Be the Church Sunday” On that day, the entire congregation interacts with the community. Home visits, food drives at the local grocery stores, washing windows at the gas stations, handing out quarters at the laundromat, and raking leaves are just a few of the activities entertained that day. Even within the church, parishioners count grocery slips, clip Campbell soup labels, and do general housekeeping of the grounds and in the community. This unique approach to take our mission outside the walls has become a favorite with many in the church and many more in the area.
A little farther from home, but each year, a group travels to the RedBird Mission in Kentucky for several days to help with assorted projects. Just one more opportunity allowed by Cuba First Baptist to reach out to the world around us.
