Carry each other’s burdens, and in
this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.
We will all experience defining moments throughout our lives—exciting milestones, challenging circumstances, relational pain, and seasons of transition. The way we face these moments has a direct impact on our futures. Desert Vineyard Care Ministries provide a network of support, access to helpful resources, compassionate volunteers, and trained peer counselors to help you move forward.
Care Connect | Prayer and Hospital Visitation
Our Care Connect ministry is two-fold. The first is to connect with those requesting prayer by phone or by mail. We want to assure you that you are not alone in crying out to God. Secondly, Care Connect sends people out to visit those who find themselves in hospital or home-bound care. We bring friendly faces and prayerful hearts to your bedside to help ease the stresses of that time.
We believe in the power and the necessity of prayer in all aspects of our lives. At each of our weekend services, the Prayer Ministry team provides intercession and prayer for salvation, comfort, and understanding for anyone who has need. If you have a sympathetic heart and would like to intercede on behalf of our church and its members consider joining our prayer team. We pray concurrent with every service in the prayer room, and in the sanctuary alongside any responding in prayer at the conclusion of services.
We provide memorial services for our church family and others as we are able. In some of the most difficult times, we find that helping to make the process of planning and coordinating memorial services can be overwhelming and expensive. Our memorial team comes alongside that process to ease the pressure and help bring comfort and love in the hardest of times. We take in food donations for memorial receptions held here at the church, and also serve the families with set up, food service, and clean up on the day of services.
We have trained volunteers that would love to talk to you if you are going through something difficult in your life. Peer counselors offer free one to one counseling for individuals that need someone to talk with, receive advice and support. We also train those interested in becoming peer counselors with extensive and practical training. If you wish to receive counseling, please complete the Peer Counseling Request Form, available online by clicking the button below or weekdays in the office and weekends at the Information Counter. If you are interested in our next training to become a peer counselor, please use the form below and someone will be in contact with you.
