Missions Rummage Sale on March 27th at Cypress Church

Discover new treasures and share some of your “white elephants” with friends and neighbors while you support a worthy cause at the same time. Cypress Church will be holding a Rummage Sale on Saturday, March 27th from 8:00 am until 2:00 pm. The proceeds from the sale will go to support missions teams travelling to New Orleans, Ecuador, Mexico and India this coming summer

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 2009 a team of Cypress High School and Cypress College students travelled to America’s Center in St. Louis Missouri for the five day Urban Missions Conference. The team will learned how critical global issues like human trafficking, environmental degradation, poverty and divisions between peoples affect all of us. They got 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 the summer of 2009 the Ecuador team travelled through miles of jungle to bring the life changing message of Jesus to the Waodani tribe in South America. Last July 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 Ecuador and New Orleans Teams are making plans to serve again during the summer of 2010.

The Rummage Sale at Cypress Church on March 27th 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, March 25th from 5:00 pm to 11:00 pm and also on Friday, March 26th from 12 noon until 11:00 pm.

The Cypress Church campus is located at 6143 Ball Road just east of Valley View. Information about the Missions Rummage Sale is available from Susan Peterson at (562) 867-5223 or email:
