Attention Cypress Baptist Church members:

Today, Bro. Jeff May and the deacons met to discuss resuming services in the church building. We will resume services on Sunday, July 26th at ~11:00 am~. Wednesday night services will resume the following Wednesday, July 29th at ~6:30 pm~. ***Also, this year the church's Homecoming is cancelled. ***

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and especially since Ouachita Parish is experiencing an influx of cases, we will require everyone to wear a facemask at all times during the service. We also ask that if you have been exposed to anyone with a confirmed case or you are experiencing symptoms related to COVID-19, please be respectful of your church family and do not attend.

We do realize that this causes an inconvenience to everyone and some people cannot wear masks due to health issues. If this is the case, we respectfully ask that you do not attend until further notice.

Facemasks will not be required for children under the age of eight years old.

Videos will continue to be posted to the church's Facebook page and Youtube channel, so you may connect with us should you need to remain at home.

ABOUT US

We believe the Father through the Holy Spirit draws men and women to Christ and equips believers for personal growth and service to the church. The church’s role is to glorify God and serve those in need. At the end, everyone will experience bodily resurrection and judgment. Only believers will enjoy eternal fellowship with God. We believe that Jesus Christ lived a sinless life on earth and voluntarily paid for our sins by dying on the cross as our substitute.
