Missions Rummage Sale at Cypress Church on November 21st

Shop for the holidays and support a worthy cause at the same time. Cypress Church will be holding a Rummage Sale on Saturday, November 21st from 8:00 am until 2:00 pm. The proceeds from the sale will go to support the New Orleans Mission Team and the Urbana Missions Conference Team.

Christians have the privilege and duty of sharing God’s love with others. Cypress Church takes this responsibility to heart in a big way. During December a team of Cypress High School and Cypress College students will travel to America’s Center in St. Louis Missouri for the five day Urban Missions Conference.

At the Urbana Conference the team will learn how critical global issues like human trafficking, environmental degradation, poverty and divisions between peoples affect all of us. They will also be connected to tangible ways that will enable them to take part in God's work of bringing reconciliation and healing to our broken world through his Son, Jesus Christ.

During July of 2009, a team of 15 students and adults from Cypress Church travelled to New Orleans to serve with the Urban Impact organization. They played key roles in staffing a summer program for youth in the housing projects of New Orleans. The team taught Bible lessons and sports fundamentals to disadvantaged children in partnership with Castle Rock Church. The Cypress Church New Orleans Team is already making plans to serve again during the summer of 2010.

The Rummage Sale at Cypress Church on November 21st will be instrumental in funding these mission activities. Community residents are invited to donate clothing, furniture, books, electronic equipment, jewelry, kitchen utensils & other household items. Donations will be received on Thursday, November 19th from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm and also on Friday, November 20th from 12 noon until 8:00 pm.

The Cypress Church campus is located at 6143 Ball Road just east of Valley View.
