Cypress Christian School August & September Happenings

CyChristian Founding Member, Gerald Van Beek, Graduated to Heaven
On August 4, 2016, a member of the founding committee that established Cypress Christian School, Gerald (Jerry) Van Beek, went home to be with our Lord. He and his wife Edith (who went home in 2013) were not only founders, but longtime supporters of our school with their time, talents and resources until their very last days. We thank God for the Van Beek family and for the confidence that they are safe with the Lord Jesus Christ.
