seed PLANTING

Wednesdays 5:30-7pm | DeMik Home

SEED PLANTING... is a series of sessions exploring the basics of the Christian faith. Each week looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. What to expect: food, a talk and good conversation.


FOOD | Whether it’s a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table, or a quick catch-up over coffee and cake, food has a way of bringing people together. It’s no different at Cypress Chapel. We start with food, because it’s a great way to encourage community and get to know each other.

TALK | The talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Generally thirty minutes long our hope is to explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions such as Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith? 

CONVERSATION | Probably the most important part of any gathering: the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic, and simply discuss it in a small group. There’s no obligation to say anything. And there’s nothing you can’t say. It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.

  • wed, feb 1 | the bible

    The Bible continues to be the best selling book of all time. Throughout the ages, the Bible has provided inspiration,comfort and guidance to those who have read it.But is the Bible merely an inspirational book? It is this,but so much more! Let’s spend a few moments reviewing some important truths about the Bible.

  • wed, march 8 | Ten Commandments

    Here is the tenfold sure command, God gave to men of every land, through faithful Moses standing high, on holy Mount Sinai. Have mercy, Lord! This evening will help us discuss the Commandments and use them in your daily life. We recognize sin in our lives as we examine ourselves according to the Ten Commandments. Sin takes a gift God has given and uses it in a way God does not want it used. Each commandment also teaches us how God’s gifts are used to His honor and glory.

  • wed, march 22 | The Apostles' Creed

    There is nothing more sure or certain in this life than the word and promise of God. With the words of the Apostles’ Creed, Christians through the ages have responded to God’s Word to them. With the Psalmist we pray, “O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth shall confess your praise” (Ps. 51:15). The word “creed” comes from the Latin word, “credo,” which means,“I believe.” To “confess” means to make a declaration of what one believes. 


    When we confess the faith of the Christian church in the words of the Apostles’ Creed, we are confessing our belief in who the Holy Trinity is, and what God has done for us. Each section, or article, of the Apostles’ Creed speaks about the work of one of the persons of the Holy Trinity: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Each article of the Apostles’ Creed is our opportunity to speak back to God, and to each other, the mighty deeds of the Holy Trinity by which He has created us, by which He has redeemed us, and by which He keeps us in the one true faith until life eternal. This is a very important dimension of our faith and worship of God.

  • Wed, April 26 | Christian stewardship

    I have a suspicion Christian stewardship is one of those areas to which we really do not give adequate attention. Unfortunately, at times when stewardship is discussed it is done from the perspective of the Law, not the Gospel. In fact, it may well be that a number of people think that stewardship is only about raising funds for the church’s budget. That is genuinely unfortunate, for, as we shall see, Christian stewardship is much more than this. 


    To fully appreciate the privilege we have of being Christian stewards, we need to return to those bedrock truths of the Christian faith so that we will continually live in appreciation of the glorious truths of God’s Word, truths that set us free for lives of Christian stewardship. 

  • wed, april 5 | Lord's Prayer

    The blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us from all sin, reconciles us to God and thus makes it possible for us to come to God in prayer. Prayer is a marvelous privilege from the Lord. He not only commands us to pray, but He invites us to pray to Him. He wants our prayers. What a fantastic blessing prayer is! The Lord’s Prayer is the prayer above every other prayer because our Lord Jesus Christ personally gave this prayer to the church. Let’s spend a few moments here exploring the Lord’s Prayer. 

  • wed, may 10 | Worship

    The most precious gifts and treasures our Lord gives us are His forgiveness, life and salvation. Through His innocent life and bitter sufferings and death, Christ has purchased and won us from sin, death and the devil. Through Jesus Christ, all the sins of the world were paid for and the wrath of God was appeased. Christ has reconciled the whole world to God. 


    Jesus Christ serves us again and again as His Gospel is proclaimed, as His people are baptized and as His Word is read. He serves us as His forgiveness is pronounced and penitents absolved. He serves us as He gives us His body and blood under the bread and wine to eat and to drink. This is how our Lord gives us forgiveness, life, and salvation. What a blessing it is to be called and gathered for worship by our good and gracious God! 

  • Thursday, April 13 | Lord's Supper

    (Holy Week - Maundy Thursday)

    On the journey through our earthly life to heaven, our good and gracious God provides a holy and precious meal to sustain and strengthen us on our pilgrimage—the Lord’s Supper. What a privilege it is for us to receive this powerfully comforting gift! Thanks and praise forever be to God for the Sacrament of the Altar.


    **During what we consider "Holy Week," or the days between Palm Sunday and Easter, our Lord Jesus Christ instituted this meal with these words: “This is My body, given for you. This cup is My blood of the new testament, shed for you for the forgiveness of sins” (Matthew 26:26-29; Mark 14:22-25; Luke 22:14-20; 1 Corinthians 11:23-25). The Lord’s Supper “is the true body and blood of our Lord Jesus Christ under the bread and wine, instituted by Christ Himself for us Christians to eat and to drink” (Small Catechism).**

  • wed, march 1 | Confession & Absolution

    Ash Wednesday

    Jesus’ parable of the Pharisee and the tax collector in Luke 18:9–14 confronts each of us with an important question: Am I a poor, miserable sinner? 


    The Pharisee in the parable is not alone. We too are often unaware of our sinfulness, or don’t want to admit it. How easy it is for us self-righteously to compare ourselves with others. Thanks be to God, that the second man, the tax-collector, is not alone either! Jesus Christ is with him. When Jesus calls, sinners come. They receive His forgiveness, life and salvation. And thus, we too say, “Lord,be merciful to me, a sinner,” for Jesus is the friend of sinners. The precious gift of our Lord’s absolution is what confession is all about.


    In confession and absolution, Jesus Christ, who poured out his life-blood as the perfect and complete sacrifice for all sin, pours into our ears the life-giving promise of absolution, “My son, my daughter, go in peace, your sins are forgiven.” Trusting that promise, we say, “Amen. Yes, Lord, it is true.” Thanks be to God!

  • wed, feb 15 | baptism

    Suppose for a moment that there was a doctor who had and promises of God declare. Which are these words and such incredible talent that he could prevent people from dying,and bring those who had died back to life,never to die again. Just imagine how people would do whatever they could to be treated by this doctor! Now consider that in Holy Baptism, God actually does give us the gift of eternal life! Let’s learn more about this marvelous blessing.

  • Wed, Jan 18 | the gospel

    We cannot really understand how good the message of the Gospel is until we understand how bad our situation is without it. We are poor miserable sinners. We sin daily and deserve nothing but God’s wrath and punishment. Without Jesus Christ, our situation would be totally hopeless. 


    The Scriptures describe human beings as dead in trespasses and sin. Without the mercy and cleansing of God through the blood of Jesus Christ, there awaits for us only everlasting punishment in hell. Thus, we need the Gospel— desperately!
