What Can I Expect?

What Can I Expect?

At Spring Cypress Prebyterian Church, 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 SCPC meet for worship?

Our church building is located at 6000 Spring Cypress Road, Spring, TX 77379.

What time does the worship service start?

The Sunday morning worship service begins at 9:30am and we offer live streaming of this service.

Does SCPC offer Sunday School?

Yes! We have Sunday School classes for all ages at 11:00am. 

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 and 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 the Children's Ministry building main floor, is available during both Sunday School and the morning worship service.

Children are invited to remain in the worship service with their parents. We provide a children's worship guide to aid in their participation during the service. However, for those who prefer, we offer Children’s Worship during the sermon portion of our worship service. Participating children are released prior to the sermon after having received prayer and a blessing, and return to their parents at the end of the sermon.

What is your worship service like?

SCPC strives to be an integrated 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. We try to maintain a good balance, and the church elders are careful to strive for the worship service to be as conducive to you worshipping the living God as possible. 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.

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 worship leaders won’t publically “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 statement here.

Do you have a youth group?

Yes! The youth of SCPC have an active group. In addition to Sunday school, the youth get together on Wednesday evenings for a time of fun and discipleship. Additionally, the youth come together throughout the year for special activities, service projects, and retreats. For more information, please contact the office.
