At Celebration, we do not define our church as a physical building. People make our church, people who come together to worship, serve, and build community.
Together as a community, we embody the love and grace of Jesus Christ in all that we do. We commit to being a welcoming and inclusive space for people of all backgrounds and beliefs. We provide a place for people to ask tough questions, explore their faith, and grow in their relationship with God.
Welcome to long time Lutherans, Christians from every tradition, and people new to the faith. Welcome to all who have no church home, want to follow Christ, have doubts, or do not believe. Welcome to people of every age and size, color and culture, gender identity, sexual orientation and marital status, disability, ability, and challenge.
Welcome to believers, questioners, and questioning believers. This is a place where you are welcome to: celebrate and struggle, rejoice and recover. This is a place where lives are made new.
Celebration is a Reconciling in Christ (RIC) congregation. This means we welcome, affirm, and celebrate people and households of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions in every part of our life as church together. We recognize the wonderful blessings that lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual/aromantic (LGBTQIA+) people contribute through gifts for hospitality, teaching, administration, service, leadership, music, and ministry, and support the expression and development of these gifts within our community and the larger church.
Hey, I am Ryan Dockery. I serve as the Pastor at Celebration Church. Celebration is one of the most unique congregations I have ever been a part of. Here is a place where authenticity is welcomed and celebrated. You are loved for who God has created you to be. We may not take ourselves too seriously, but we do take serious our mission to make a big impact in the community of Cypress. As the only open and affirming congregation in town, we strive to create an inclusive space where all truly are welcome.
