Our concern for others extends beyond local and national boundaries to the highlands of Guatemala to support the Maya Quiche Presbytery of 22 churches first organized in 1959.
We have joined other churches of Heartland Presbytery in a partnership with this indigenous presbytery. Teams from our Presbytery visit frequently to better understand the Mayan culture and history and search for ways to assist them.
Since the fall of 2008, First Presbyterian Church has sent 10 members (including three youth) on the Maya Quiche trips. We also support this ministry financially.
