The following information was released by Cypress Church.
God has a life-journey mapped out for each one of us us and He has custom built into us abilities, talents, gifts, passions, desires, dreams, and interests to engage as part of His specific plans. “We are seeking out ways to help the needs in Cypress and the eleven cities that surround it,” says Pastor Mike McKay about the church’s desire to help the poor. “We have also looked beyond our borders, connecting with local churches and organizations in different countries to give some tangible expressions of God*s love.”
The theme at Cypress Church for 2012 is: “It’s Your Serve.” This summer members of the Cypress Church congregation are fanning out to serve others around the globe. Chante Longshore is training in Indiana during June and will then tour the East Coast with an evangelistic singing team. J.P. Delmundo has recently gone to Hawaii and will be serving with the The University of Nations (also known as YWAM – Kona). Our Mexico team, which includes the McElderry and Punkay families are building a home for a needy family in Mexico this June.
In early July, Jessica Bujarski will be serving as an intern in Ecuador. On July 16 she will be joined by a team of fifteen including the Peterson family and volunteers from four Orange County churches to assist the Waodani Tribe by holding a jungle style Vacation Bible School.
Cypress Church Senior Pastor Mike McKay and his wife Kristi will lead this year’s India team. They will travel to the Andhra Pradesh region to minister to orphans and take food to a leper colony. 25 high school students from the congregation will travel to New Orleans starting on July 21 to work with Urban Impact Ministries and Castle Rock Church.
Cypress Church is committed to serving people all around the globe and in our local area in the name of Jesus and the community is invited to participate. There are many opportunities available to volunteer for projects overseas, in other parts of the U.S.A. and also in Cypress and the surrounding cities.
