Stephen Ministry at Desert Palms A Ministry of Compassion and Caring

                                        

“For God alone my soul waits in silence,

For my hope is from him.

He alone is my rock and my salvation.” Psalm 62:5

Each Sunday, as we light the advent candles, the themes of advent are hope, peace, joy and love. But sometimes we don’t feel joyful when we reminisce about Christmases past; when we miss friends and family members who are no longer with us, when we remember times gone by that will never come again.

For many, the holidays can be a difficult time. But you don’t have to go it alone. Not only can we take comfort in the knowledge that the Savior of the world has come to free us from guilt, loneliness and regrets, but we can also take comfort in knowing that there can be a special friend with which to share feelings and concerns here and now. For more information please contact Stephen Ministry Leaders: Suzanne Burke, Kathe Cochrane, Jan Ettele, Nora Timson, Carole Jean Soine, or Pastor Linda.

 

 

 

 

 

Habitat Painting Party

 

Saturday, January 19, the Habitat for Humanity West Valley Presbyterian Coalition is holding a “painting party” at the home of the Kabari’s, our current build sponsored by the Coalition. 

 

We will work from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.  Lunch will be served.  We will be painting the inside walls.

 

In order to have a count of those interested in painting, there will be a table during Fellowship Hour on Sunday, January 13. 

Any questions, please call

Souper Bowl 1

Souper Bowl Sunday!

Sunday, February 3

 

Super Bowl Sunday is a day when our nation turns its attention to a football game. Millions are spent on advertising and publicity. Our hope on this day is that attention can also be turned to caring for those in need.

 

LET’S TACKLE HUNGER!

 

In 1990 a youth group at a church founded SouperBowl of Caring. People of their congregation put money into soup bowls or baskets after the service on Super Bowl Sunday and 100% of the proceeds were donated to LOCAL charities. Now is our chance to tackle hunger, not in some far-off place we would have to look up in an atlas to find, but right here in Phoenix, Arizona.

On February 3, 2019, members of your Mission Committee and volunteers will be stationed at the doors as we exit the church, ready to accept cash donations for this worthy cause. Donations will be divided between Agua Fria and Valley View Food Banks, along with the Kids’ Café in Surprise.

There will always be poor people in the land.  Therefore I command you to be open-handed toward your brothers and toward the poor and needy in your land.”  --Deuteronomy 15:10
