What are the Next BIG Things?

I am going to be showing (and talking about) one of my favorite pictures from the Cypress archives this weekend. As a matter of fact, it may have inspired a “Wall of Fame” around here somewhere…yes, Dublin, at ALL of our campusesJ…to “remind us of God’s faithfulness” from generation to generation. Any guesses as to what year my favorite picture was taken?

This weekend is our “State of the Church” address. I will be recapping where we’ve been and looking ahead to the Next BIG Things God is Leading us Toward. I have never been more excited about our future as I am in this season of life. I am enjoying the journey the Lord has us traveling together. This past year has been nothing short of amazing, but the best is still yet to come!

Be “in the know” and “in the loop” this weekend at Cypress as we wrap up our summer series…it’s BIGJ 

See ya soon,

Chain Reaction ... are you part of the chain?

I have really enjoyed our current series, Chain Reaction, and I hope you have found value and enjoyment from it as well. I have to tell you, though, from the time this series started as an idea in my head months ago, I’ve been waiting and looking forward to the fourth and final week to get here. I believe this weekend will be one we’ll look back on and realize what an incredibly special service it was…an anchor point for our church and a turning point for countless families and people. As a matter of fact, we are not wrapping up a series, we are empowering and launching the CHURCH…literally, like never before!

The party starts at 6pm on Saturday and 9:30am & 11:15am on Sunday. Be sure to bring the kids…they are going to love it this weekend in Kids Ministry!

See ya soon,
Pastor Ken

How would you define "the good life?"

How would you define “the good life?” Have you ever wondered if there’s a clear proven strategy to tap into a deeper level of satisfaction and well being toward life and others? If so, this weekend is for you. Why do secular surveys indicate 50% of all workers find low satisfaction in their employment? There is one dominate reason and we’ll be looking to scripture to determine how we find it….What is it?

See you this weekend as we dive in and find out,
Pastor Ken

PS. Celebrating baptism…VBS kids helping lead worship…get here early for a good seat J This would be a great weekend to invite a friend.

You will never believe what I'm bringing this weekend...

Team Cypress,

This weekend, we continue our series, CHAIN REACTION.  Last week, I brought Dominos; you will never believe what I am bringing this week…I promise, it’s BIG…like eight feet tall big!  No, it’s not Goliath, but its construction did include several 16 pound bowling balls!  For those of you who normally sit in the front row, be sure to stay alert this weekendJ

In preparation for this weekend, God has shown me things in scripture that I believe will change lives not only for this coming year, but for eternity.  The Lord is being gracious to us in an unprecedented way in this season of life at Cypress.  I really don’t want you to miss out on what the Lord desires to do in your life and in your family’s lives.

See ya this weekend,
Pastor Ken

A dream of mine has always been...

A dream of mine has always been for Cypress to be a teaching church…

This summer, we welcomed our first interns into our Next Wave Internship Program and, now, I’m pleased to announce that Kathy George, Cypress Children’s Ministry Director, has been named Director of Children’s Ministry for The Wesleyan Church.  Kathy is not leaving Cypress but will be using her talents to help lead staff across the entire Wesleyan denomination.  We are blessed to have Kathy and The Wesleyan Church will be blessed by the ideas, training, and leadership coming through her and Cypress.

A Chain Reaction is occurring…internship program, leadership development…more and more, it’s happening!

Have a great week!

What's Chain Reaction all about?

There is a big difference between speaking and delivering a message. I have a message to “deliver” this weekend at Cypress. We are launching a new series called, Chain Reaction. If you have ever wondered about the main thing in life, the role of the church, the role of the people, or the mission that lies ahead of us in the coming days…don’t miss this weekend. This would be a great time to bring a friend who wants to be a part of something BIG. They will have the opportunity to give their life to a cause greater than anything this world has to offer.

I love the church…and I’m particularly fond of Cypress!

I’ve been pumped for this weekend since Tuesday…see you soon!

Pastor Ken
