Cypress Lake has a strong tradition of supporting local outreach efforts and global missions projects. We wanted to update you on how generously you’ve responded to some of our recent missions efforts.

UMCOR:  $25,388.00 was raised in contributions that came through the church after Hurricane Harvey.

Hurricane Irma:  You contributed $11,811.00 towards Bishop Ken Carter’s fund to help rebuild churches and communities where the needs went beyond UMCOR’s mission.

Florida United Methodist Children’s Home:  5th Sunday offerings thus far in 2017 have totaled $21,360.19.

Pumpkin Patch:  This year’s proceeds totaled $9,494.65 to be shared among Young Life – Dunbar High School, Dunbar High School Tutoring Center, Rotary-Fort Myers South scholarship fund, and Cypress Lake UMC youth ministry.

Food drive:  We collected 2,000 pounds of food for the South Fort Myers Food Pantry as a part of our Season of Caring. That will help feed 600 people/ 150 families!

Thank you for responding to the needs of our community and world.
