Justice, Kindness, Walk Humbly with God
Desert Dove Church is a community of faith rooted in the love of God made known in the person of Jesus Christ. As disciples, we take seriously the call to follow Jesus, witnessing, loving, and serving from our doorsteps to the ends of the earth. We are committed to the mission of Christ’s teachings of extravagant love, peace, and justice for all creation.
Empowered by the Holy Spirit, God calls us to be a faithful, growing church that demonstrates true community, deep Christian spirituality, and a passion for justice.
We are not afraid to ask the difficult questions. The Bible is our sacred text and provides a beginning point for our exploration of faith. We also look to science, reason, and the wisdom of other traditions, as we seek to live out our faith. We do not shy away from the issues of the day, and we encourage honest dialogue that helps us live more fully into the faith that lives within us – and among us. We live this out through worship, study, and small groups.
As an Open and Affirming congregation, we welcome people of all gender identities and sexual orientations, races and ethnicities, mental and physical abilities, marital and socioeconomic status into the full life of ministry and leadership of this faith community.
Worship each Sunday begins at 10 AM. Our music blends traditional and contemporary songs. We read Scripture, listen to a sermon, and we pray together. The central focus is The Lord’s Supper, and all are welcome at the table. We also have services for special religious holidays, such as Christmas Eve, Ash Wednesday, and Maundy Thursday.
If you are unable to join us in person, our worship services are livestreamed on our Facebook page and can be found on Youtube.
