At Spring Cypress, we know that attending a church for the first time can be an intimidating experience. In order to assist you as you prepare for your visit, we have compiled the following list of questions frequently asked by first time guests. If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact our pastor.
Where does Spring Cypress Presbyterian Church meet for worship?
Our church building is located at 6000 Spring Cypress Rd., Spring, TX 77379.
What time does the worship service start?
The Sunday morning worship service begins at 9:30am and lasts until approximately 10:45am.
Does SCPC offer Sunday School?
Yes! We have Sunday School classes for all ages. Sunday School classes begin at 11:00am and last until 11:45am.
What do I wear?
If you prefer to wear a suit and tie, go for it! On the other hand, if you feel more comfortable in jeans and a t-shirt, that’s fine too! We are more concerned with you than we are with your clothing.
What about my kids?
We believe that God is passionate about children, and so are we. We consider it to be a privilege that you would entrust your children to us. Thus our number one priority is to provide them a safe, secure, caring environment in which they can learn of the love of God for them in Christ. On Sundays we offer a Nursery for children aged 0-3 years. The Nursery, located in Building B, is available during both Sunday School and the morning worship service. Here at Spring Cypress, children are welcome to remain in the worship service with their parents. However, for those who prefer, we offer Children’s Church during our worship service for those aged 4-8. Children are released to children’s church prior to the sermon after having received prayer and a blessing from our pastor. The children are returned to their parents in the sanctuary at the conclusion of the sermon.
What is your worship service like?
SCPC strives to be a blended church. That is, we seek to combine traditional elements with a contemporary feel and tone. This commitment manifests itself clearly in our music: on the one hand we have an organ… on the other hand we have a modern praise team. You can expect elements of both to be woven into our services with regularity. We want our church to be one in which older Christians feel at home and in which younger Christians feel comfortable. The goal of each worship service is to glorify God by encouraging and enabling you to rest in His salvation and to live out the implications of His Word. To learn more about our philosophy of worship at SCPC, you may read our statement here. To get a more specific feel for what this week’s worship service will be like, you may view the weekly bulletin here.
Will I be singled out during my visit?
SCPC is a friendly church and you’ll likely have many people want to greet you and get to know you. However, the pastor and other leaders won’t publicly “call you out” or draw attention to you during the service. Additionally, no one will contact you after your visit unless you ask us to do so.
What do you believe?
We believe that truth matters. At the same time, we embrace the old saying, “In essentials unity, in non-essentials liberty, in all things charity.” You can read our doctrinal commitments and affirmations here. That said, as a church that is Reformed in doctrine and Presbyterian in polity, the Westminster Confession of Faith and the Westminster Larger & Shorter Catechisms contain the doctrinal content we confess and therefore provide the perspective from which we preach and teach.
How often do you celebrate communion?
We celebrate the Lord’s Supper on a monthly basis on the first Sunday of the month.
What kind of midweek activities do you have?
Spring Cypress is a vibrant and growing church, as such we have numerous ministries and programs available for those of every age. We encourage you to check out the Ministries section of our website to get a better feel for what we offer. To learn what ministries are meeting this week, please see page 6 of the current bulletin for a complete list of activities. For more information, please contact the office.
