How does God describe ... "Greatness"

It seems everyone has their own definition of what “Greatness” looks like.  Those in their teens, 40’s, or 70’s may define and evaluate “Greatness” by different standards and criteria as well.  This weekend, we will be looking at how God describes “Greatness.”  Here is the good news... “Walking Through the Door of Greatness” is an attainable place for ALL people!  We have an exciting experience planned for the conclusion of our DOORS series.

See you soon,
Pastor Ken

Don't miss the "opportunities" this weekend...

Opportunities abound…some subtle, others in obvious fashion.  Worship this weekend is an opportunity to connect with friends, make new friends, allow your kids to learn about God in a fun and interactive way, see if Wilson has on a bow tie or if I’ve switched from long sleeve to short sleeve (sorry, my fashion choices don’t really vary that much)J  Seriously, this weekend is an opportunity to experience the presence of God in your midst, an opportunity to experience hope once again, an opportunity to learn from His Word and hear what He says about maximizing opportunities in life!

I hope you take advantage…Saturday @ 6:00 or Sunday @ 9:30 & 11:15
Pastor Ken

PS.  Don’t forget the opportunity to laugh as we do our own version of the Dating Game…opportunity awaits…one lucky lady, bachelorette number 1.

How do you close the door of regret...find out @ Cypress this weekend!

There are many things we ALL have in common…among them are REGRETS and struggles over how to deal with or reconcile these tough parts of life.  This weekend, we will take a look at what the Bible has to say about regrets and proven steps to help us CLOSE THE DOORS OF REGRET in our life.  If you are looking for God wisdom on how to manage and improve the quality of life you live….YOU WILL LOVE THIS WEEKEND!  This would be a GREAT WEEKEND TO INVITE FRIENDS.

Also, there is a HUGE announcement that will positively affect the future of CWC.  Be sure to be here and hear it firsthand! 

And finally, I’ve heard there will be a “3 Foot Candy Bar” in Children’s Ministry this weekend…I may just have to find time to go over and “check” on things.

I’m really looking forward to this weekend!

Easter 2012 ... Five things I want to share

Easter 2012 recap … “there’s no place like home”

1.     A HUGE THANK YOU to the hundreds of volunteers who made seven services possible last week/weekend…equaling countless hours of service to honor Christ and to touch lives.  At one service, a Children’s Ministry volunteer cared for the daughter of a woman I invited; the mom loved the service and I’ve heard her daughter loved Kids’ Church.  A personal thank you to that volunteer!

2.     To all who extended invitations to friends…Thank you!

3.     To all who “shifted” your normal service time to make room for others…Thank you!  We had the largest Easter attendance ever at Cypress - 6,784!!  Everyone had a place to park and a place to sit at all services.  Praise God!

4.     To all who made a significant decision for Christ…CONGRATULATIONS!!  We are proud of you!  Here are a sampling of conversations and emails I’ve received lately:

-        My boyfriend raised his hand to accept Christ today!
-        My mother-in-law raised her hand to follow Christ today!
-        I invited my co-worker and her boyfriend…they both came and accepted Christ today!
-        That service spoke to me in a special way…I’m back on the right path!
-        That was the first time I’ve been to church in a long time and the first time I have ever been excited to GO BACK!  See you next week!
5.     Remember, we measure success by lives changed for Christ, not by record attendance.  However, with record attendance, there are more ears and hearts to hear and experience the life-changing message of Christ.  The next big weekend will be NEXT WEEKEND!  Let’s join together to see how many we can get to come back as we launch our new series, Doors…Closing the Door of Regret.

With heartfelt thanks,
Pastor Ken
