First Thursdays

The first Thursday of every month our Worship & Creative Arts Team gathers together for a meal, worship, and prayer. As our team grows we will add other elements to evening, but for now we are using this time to get to know each other and give thanks to God for what He is doing here at Cypress! Everyone is welcome. If you play an instrument, sing, act, write, are interested in photography, audio, video, lighting you are invited! Please also use these gatherings as opportunities to invite your friends and neighbors. If you have any questions, please contact our Director of Worship & Creative Arts, Carrie Lelsz at Carrie@ cypress 

Psalm 16:8 (NIV)
“I keep my eyes always on the Lord. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.”

Join the Team!

Cypress Community Church is not built on the gifts and talents of a few, but on the sacrifice of many.

It really does take a village to serve on a ministry team. When I arrived here at Cypress in June 2018, I was quickly blown away by the people in this church and how they love to serve on another for the sake of the Gospel. 

Serving on this team does take commitment and sacrifice that I certainly don’t take lightly! I believe that serving on the Worship/Creative Arts team is one of those ways we can step in an serve one another for the sake of the Gospel. Part of our job as Worship/Creative Arts team members is to create a space for people to encounter Jesus, and expect to see lives changed. Who wouldn’t want to be a part of that? 

I would love to meet you if you are new to Cypress and are looking for a way to get plugged in. Or if you’ve been on the fence and timid about stepping out in faith to audition for the Worship/Creative Arts team, come talk to me. 

My prayer is that if the Holy Spirit is stirring within you to come up and say hello to me or anyone else on the team and share that you have a gift and talent in playing a musical instrument, or if you have a desire to run the audio/visual side of the team, you will listen to that voice! 

As we are building these teams we are also becoming a family. We hang out together, we worship Jesus together, and we pray for one another. If you would like to learn more about the Worship/Creative Arts team, or take the next step in starting the application to serve please click on the link above or feel free to email Carrie at or call the church office at 831-484-2141.

We are praying that this team will be All in and serving Jesus with our whole heart, mind and strength!

Blessings to you,

Carrie Lelsz, Worship Director

The tradition of singing the great hymns of the faith is not lost at Cypress. We are a singing church! On Sunday, November 10 at 4pm you are invited to come together for a beautiful time of reflection and worship, immersed in the history of the songs of our faith. All are welcome as David Talbott takes us on a journey through the powerful words of these hymns. The congregation is always the primary choir. So YOU will be singing with David as he leads us. David Talbott was the Resident Musician at Mount Hermon for 40 years, and has a unique way of using hymn singing and his beautiful musicianship to provide a powerful time of worship!

We will have a time of refreshments and desserts after the event where you will have a chance to meet David and purchase his CD's and fellowship with one another.
