Women's Bunco Night

Ladies, are you looking for a fun way to connect and meet other women here at Cypress? We will be having another Bunco night, Friday February 10th in the Fellowship Hall at 6pm. Bunco is an easy-to-learn dice game that is loads of fun. Anyone can play. All women from junior high and beyond are invited. This is a great opportunity to invite a non-churched friend, neighbor, or family member to connect with Cypress. Please join us for a night of fun and fellowship as we seek to Worship Jesus, Love One Another and Serve the World.

Call the office at (831)484-2141 to RSVP or sign up at the table after the service. 

Women Mentoring Women

We are excited to launch our Women Mentoring Women program! We have scheduled 4 inspirational mentoring training sessions in the East Room to equip you to be a mentor.

Saturday, January 21, 9am-12pm

Sunday, January 22, 2pm-5pm

Saturday, February 4, 9am-12pm

Sunday, February 5, 2pm-5pm

All who want to be trained must attend all 4 sessions. Anyone seeking to be a mentor or mentee can sign-up by contacting Mary Ann Urmanita @ (831)595-3102.


Beginning Wednesday, February 1st, our women will seek God through a 6-week bible study by Melissa Spoelstra on The Names of God. You will explore many of the names of God found in the Bible: Elohim, El Elyon, Yahweh, Abba, Jesus, Messiah, Holy Spirit, and so many more. This study will not just give you facts about God; it will help you know him personally as you learn about his character.

We hope you will join us every Wednesday from 9:30-11:30am in the Fellowship Hall.

Sign-ups are now closed. Any Questions? Contact bobbicripe@gmail.com.

Cypress Women's Ministry


Cypress Women’s ministry is a diverse community of women who cultivate intentional relationships that point each other to Jesus. 

We live life together, support one another through life’s various seasons, pray for the world around us, and worship the Lord as one body.

And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you. 

My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. 

Psalm 73:25-26
