The newest congregation on the list of Covenant Network churches is Spirit of the Desert Presbyterian Fellowship, Palm Desert, California, for years a strong supporter of the mission of the Covenant Network.
The mission of Spirit of the Desert is expressed in this message: “Whoever you are, and wherever you are in your journey of faith, you are welcome here.”
The seven ministers on staff are joined by numerous guest preachers, who volunteer their services so that the congregation can give over 70% of its budget to mission outside the congregation. National Organizer Tricia Dykers Koenig has enjoyed preaching there twice, and is looking forward to scheduling another visit to Southern California to experience the warm welcome of this community of faith.
Services are held Sunday evenings at 5:00 p.m. – an ideal time for those who come to the area to enjoy the sunshine. A fellowship meal follows worship. If you or someone you know is in the Palm Springs/Palm Desert area on vacation, for the winter, or full-time, they would love to see you!
The Covenant Network has been grateful for the long-standing support of this fellowship, and is thrilled to welcome them to the list of those who have officially endorsed the Call to Covenant Community. If you or your congregation would like to join them, you’ll find information here.
