World Communion Sunday

World Communion is Sunday,

October 7, 2018

We are excited to have visiting pastors, Bill and Linda Campbell, founders of Prepare the Way Ministry in Uganda, Africa, as our guest missionaries during our World Communion Sunday Service.

They will also be present in Fellowship Hall during the fellowship hour following the worship service to answer questions.  Revs. Bill and Linda will visit and talk more about their ministry in Africa at the World Communion Sunday Mission Brunch at Briarwood Country Club at 11:30 a.m.  Tickets are $25 and may be purchased at the PW table.

This is a great opportunity to meet an ordinary couple from Lee’s Summit, Missouri, who were called by God to do extra-ordinary work in an out of the ordinary place, Uganda, Africa.  Thanks to support from Desert Palms Presbyterian Church members, PW and the Mission Committee, the lives of this couple, their orphanages, farms youth group, worship and pastor education programs continue and are personally linked with our church’s call to help those in need.

We hope you enjoy learning and experiencing a bit of African Worship Culture this fall.

WORSHIP at Desert Palms is central to the life of the congregation.  Worship brings us together every Lord’s Day (Sunday mornings at 8:30 and 10:30 from October through May and at 9:30 from June through September) and on other occasions, such as the great festival seasons of the church, to seek God’s word, respond to it, and celebrate Christ’s resurrection.

Fellowship Hour is held in Fellowship Hall next door to the Sanctuary between services each Sunday. This time of fellowship and refreshments is a great time to visit with old friends as well as meet and greet new members and visitors.


WORD and SONG are both central to the worship experience at Desert Palms. A 75-voice Chancel Choir led by director of music ministry Wendy Fentiman, individual men’s and women’s choirs, a 20-member hand bell choir, church organist Virginia Wilson, and the preaching of our senior pastor and associate pastor provide leadership for the each week.

OUR WORSHIP is based on the “Reformed” tradition of the Christian faith wherein the service gives emphasis to the sacraments of communion and baptism, to the exposition of Holy Scripture through preaching, and to quality music that is both classical and contemporary. The Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper is celebrated monthly; the baptismal font is filled at the beginning of every worship service; and a service of renewal of baptismal vows is held on Baptism of the Lord Sunday in January each year.

THE ORDER OF WEEKLY WORSHIP at Desert Palms follows the “Service for the Lord’s Day” suggested by the Book of Common Worship of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). Attendance at worship during the fall, winter, and spring months averages more than 800 each week.
