Cypress Skateway Found New Life As Cypress Church

The Cypress Event News featured a picture of the old Cypress Skateway building in their March 12th issue "Blast From The Past.” The former Cypress Skateway building found new life as the home for Cypress Church. This church began as a home Bible study in 1978. As the church grew and needed larger facilities they rented rooms at local schools.

By the late 1980’s the congregation numbered several hundred and additional space was needed for offices and classrooms. The Cypress Skateway building was purchased in 1987. Church staff and volunteers from the congregation performed all of the initial renovations to the building. The first worship services were held in the renovated Skateway building in 1989.

Cypress Church has found many ways to serve the local community. Their facilities have been made available to local school groups and sports teams. There is a Men’s Bible Study Fellowship on Monday evenings; Junior High and High School youth meet on Tuesdays. On Wednesday the Children’s Ministry offers Awana clubs and during the summer there is Vacation Bible School and Music Camp. Precept Bible studies meet on Thursday and there are worship services on Sunday at 8:45 and 10:30 a.m. Church members collect food and make blankets for the homeless and also serve at the local Cypress Senior Center. The Cypress Church Band often plays at the Cypress Community Festival.

This year during Easter week Cypress Church will offer eight worship services beginning on Palm Sunday. The contemporary worship team, praise band will be joined by a string ensemble and horn section in leading the worship services. Palm Sunday will celebrate the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem. The Student Ministries is partnering with other local churches for Collective Voice Worship which will be on Tuesday, March 30th at 6:00 p.m. On Thursday April 1st there will be a special communion service at 7:00 p.m. The church will also have Good Friday services on April 2nd starting at 7:00 p.m.

Easter Sunday will be great celebration with three worship services at 8:00, 9:30 and 11:00 a.m. The contemporary choir and praise band lead the congregation in worshiping the Risen Savior. There will be uplifting songs of praise as well as some old-favorites. “He Is Risen! He Is Risen Indeed!” The Cypress Church Children’s Ministry has special activities planned for kids on Easter Sunday. These will include a presentation of the story of Easter, exciting games and an egg hunt.
