Cypress Church Rummage Sale on April 27 Supports World Missions

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 their annual Rummage Sale on Saturday, April 27th from 8:00 am until 2:00 pm. The proceeds from the sale will go to support mission teams travelling to New Orleans, Ecuador, and Mexico 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 2012 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 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 enable them to take part in God's work of bringing reconciliation and healing to our broken world through his Son, Jesus Christ.

During this upcoming summer the Ecuador team will travel through miles of jungle to bring the life changing message of Jesus to the village of Zancudo and other indigenous people in South America.

In July, a team of 20 students and adults from Cypress Church will travel to New Orleans to serve with the Urban Impact organization. They will play key roles in staffing a summer program for youth in the housing projects of New Orleans. The team helps teach Bible lessons and sports fundamentals to disadvantaged children in partnership with Castle Rock Church.

There is also a team going to Mexico to help with building projects and with VBS (Vacation Bible School). What a busy summer for people at Cypress Church as they strive to effectively love on people locally, at the church and in the immediate community, as well as abroad.

The Rummage Sale at Cypress Church on April 27th will be instrumental in funding these mission activities. Community residents are invited to donate clothing, furniture (no entertainment units, though!), books, electronic equipment, jewelry, kitchen utensils and other household items. Donations will be received on Thursday, April 25th from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm and also on Friday, April 26th from 12 noon until 9:00 pm.

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