[ But truly God has listened; he has attended to the voice of my prayer. - Psalm 66.19 ]


Navigating through life as a follower of Jesus can be a difficult task. Setting aside time to regularly read the Bible and have a meaningful prayer life may not be something that you are accustomed to. Take it a step at a time, and use the resources on these pages to build a rhythm of listening and talking to God. 

GETTING TO KNOW JESUS | THE SMALL CATECHISM

discipleship resources

Many of the 'key' lessons for Cypress Chapel's 2020 worship series have been selected from 'Luther's Small Catechism Visual Edition' (for example, the lesson on the 'power' of the Lord's Supper is Jesus calming the storm in Mark 4). It would be a great resource for you to have in your library at home.
