Thank you for the amazing response of so many of you who picked up a baby bottle. 100% of your donations will go to Care Net.

CONVALESCENT OUTREACH
SATURDAYS | 3PM | MAYFLOWER GARDENS HOSPITAL
Join us for our Convalescent Ministry at Mayflower Gardens and be a blessing to many of the residents who rarely receive visitors. We become their extended family and friends. The residents love children so this is a great ministry for the whole family to do together. Anyone can join in whether you are one person or a large group. We meet in the hospital lobby of Mayflower Gardens Hospital at 6705 Columbia Way (Ave M) in Quartz Hill beginning with prayer and preparation for our time with the residents. We finish around 5PM with prayer and share time. Because there are a few expectations and rules we must follow, it is important to contact Andre Mejia at 661-618-7453 for a brief orientation to find out all you need to know to be a part of this ministry.

The Desert Vineyard has numerous recovery groups helping you to find the freedom Christ has for you. Visit the Information Table in the Main Sanctuary Lobby for times and locations for Men’s L.I.F.E. Group (Accountability), Overcomers Outreach (Christ centered 12-step), Celebrate Recovery, LHGH (Teen Recovery) and Perceptions (Mental Wellness). Contact Pastor David Swift at the church office, 661-945-2777 ext. 264 or dswift@desertvineyard.org for more information.
