An active congregation, we invite you to join in our journey, providing mission work to children, the homeless, the hungry, and the marginalized members of our community and the world.
The core missions of Desert Palm have been present since its inception: feeding the homeless and hungry, celebrating foster children, and supporting veterans and the LGBTQIA community.
With open arms, we welcome you to come and join us in service.
What is Desert Palm United Church of Christ? What are you all about?
Desert Palm United Church of Christ is a progressive faith community. We are a Christian church, but we are not Biblical literalists, and our members are invited to explore and interpret Scripture for themselves. Because of our faith, we are committed to social justice and transformative charity work. We do this in a wide variety of ways, from serving meals to the homeless to filling water tanks in southern Arizona to prevent the dehydration deaths of migrants. We also actively support veterans and foster children. Desert Palm has been a vocal supporter of LGBTQ rights, including the right to equal marriage, and many members have worked with other religious and secular groups to advocate for policies that benefit children, the environment and that seek to eradicate poverty.
We’ll be offering ashes (the mark of the cross on your forehead) from 5:30 to 6:00 followed by a simple service of readings, prayers and meditative harp music from 6:00-6:30. Ashes will also be offered at the close of the service.
