The purpose of the Health Tapestry M&M Team is to provide direct parish nursing support services (face to face visits with a specific purpose) to seventy individuals or families from our local area churches and communities. Frequency of visits range from one-time crisis intervention (individuals at Migrant Labor Camp over the summer; Food Pantry referrals) to the winner with sixty visits (subsidized by family donations). Typically, two to four people are receiving weekly visits, about ten people are visited twice monthly, and others are visited every month or two as needed with phone contact in between by nurse and other congregational members and friends.

The Presbytery of Cayuga-Syracuse entered into an international partnership relationship with Pyongyang Presbytery (Presbyterian Church of Korea) in April 2000, and over the past 13 years has both hosted several delegations from Korea and sent 85 of its members to Korea. In May 2013 members of both presbyteries will meet in Syracuse before traveling to New Jersey to participate in a Superstorm Sandy disaster relief work project. During this visit plans will be made for future adult and youth exchanges and for joint mission efforts in North Korea, Malawi, and China. In July, youth from Korea will join students from Cayuga-Syracuse to participate in the 2016 Presbyterian Youth Triennium at Purdue University.

The Latin American Mission Partnership (LAMP) was formed in 2004 to build relationships between the Presbytery of Cayuga-Syracuse and the Compeche Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church of Mexico. Over the years, we have worked together on construction of a theological seminary in Mexico, hurricane recovery in the Gulf Coast states, supplying books for a theological library, and teaching Vacation Bible School. Presently, Pastor Francisco Chan Lopez and his family are living in the Syracuse area for a period of up to eighteen months. This exchange will deepen our relationships with the people of the Presbytery of Campeche, Mexico, as well as give many more peole in Central New York an opportunity to meet some of our partners first hand. It also serves as an educational and religious experience for the adult and youth participants from Cayuga-Syracuse.

Presbyterian Southern Comfort was formed in 2006 after the devastations of Hurricane Katrina to the Gulf Coast and States. The Team’s efforts focus on contributing to the long-term recovery efforts of the area through Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA), which seeks to instill hope that life can/will return to normal following natural disasters. The Team works on rebuilding projects that will allow families to return to their homes. For many participants, this may be their first time to step out into the mission field. This can be a huge step of faith, a response to a call from God to serve and help neighbors in need.
The Team respond to communities devastated by disaster, working in partnership with Presbyterian Disaster Assistance in long-term disaster relief, to come alongside those whose homes have been damaged, to assist in clean-up and rebuilding efforts.
This Ministry and Ministry Team is dormant now, but will activate as needs emerge.
