We think that it's important for those connected with CYPRESS CHAPEL to have a neutral space to go to that isn't a worship service or a Bible study. We want our community to see and relate to Christians in a natural and relaxed environment. They need to feel that your group really enjoys being together.
The key to a THIRD PLACE is that we are intentionally creating a place for our unchurched friends to become a part of our community. Some of these opportunities include: participating in story time at the local library, organizing game nights at their homes, or having predictable patterns like visiting the local park and talking to the families there.
For the 2017-18 school year, CYPRESS CHAPEL has adopted Horne Elementary School. We have enjoyed helping with their back-to-school events, providing clothing for families in need, and making frozen casseroles for families to eat over long breaks (Thanksgiving, Christmas).
A community that they can belong to before they believe so that they may hear the gospel from our lips, see it changing our lives and believe in Jesus as he moves in them.
