WORSHIP & STUDY

“Worship is the thing the most [church] people do the most often together” and is the first of three “legs” on which a church, like a tripod, stands.

Faith, Reason, and a touch of Humor describe what we believe come together to make worship meaningful; we believe that faith which cannot withstand the intellectual challenge to it may not be an adequate faith in times of challenge, so we seek to engage heart and mind in worship and, especially, in our Bible study. We worship from and treasure the Bible; it is the unique way we grow our understanding of God and what God wants from us, but we do not worship the Bible.

We believe with Luther that, “Next to the word of God, music . . .” Though we are not the world’s greatest singers!

In addition to in-person worship (9:00 am 225 E. Butte Ave., Florence, 10:45 am 279 W. Pinkley, Coolidge) our 9:00 am worship is live-streamed on YouTube most Sundays at 9:00 am. The link is:

Recent past services can also be viewed there.

Our weekly Bible Study is discussed, below.

MISSION AND EVANGELISM

We believe that to be in the world is another of the three legs on which the Church and a church stands, which for us means “mission and evangelism.” Our primary “evangelism” activity has been the “Live Nativity” represented in the photo on our home page, while our mission activities include our monthly Hygiene Program, dispensing personal hygiene, laundry, and cleaning products to people in need, our Thanksgiving and Christmas food box programs, our aid to the Navajo churches, making our building(s) available to AA and Alanon among other groups, and financial support to local, national, and international charities.

"SHARE THE LOVE OF GOD

A third leg on which a church stands is sharing support and fellowship among one another. The latter is done weekly through after church coffee and snacks and weekly “Men’s Breakfast” and twice-a-month Women’s fellowship (taking different forms). And we care for one another and support one another in part through pastoral care, calls and visits, and in part through mutual support.

Bible Study

The pastor’s weekly Bible study (check calendar) raises questions and attempts to deal in greater depth with the Bible than can be done on a Sunday morning or through personal reading; the dialogue among participants helps us all — including the pastor — understand better this marvelous gift that helps us to encounter God.”

We offer two different Bible studies.

The pastor’s Bible Study, the basic theme of which is “The Bible Is NOT for Dummies,” a study that seeks to read the Bible for all it has to offer us by reading with our minds fully engaged and aware of the historical settings in which the Bible was written as well as the language skills — and sometimes the sense of humor — of the Biblical writers is offered most of the year on Wednesday’s at 10:30 am on Zoom or in-person at the Florence building. The Zoom link is

HELP SUPPORT OUR MISSION AND MISSIONS

We cannot exist without the financial support of our church family and friends; please consider making an online contribution now, or perhaps more than none contribution: one to the general support of the church and its mission, another specifically to support missions of the church [not sure we should have multiple opportunities under this].

ENTER PRAYER REQUESTS

“Whether God answers our prayers as we wish or not, God listens to and hears our prayers. The prayers we as members of the pastor of Desert Hope Presbyterian have no greater effect than those of anyone else, yet they do indeed matter in ways we cannot always fathom. If you have a prayer request, a name of a cause, please submit it and it shall be raised in worship or by our prayer-chain.”

What We Believe

We believe that every human being is a child of God, and that as an old tee-shirt said, “God don’t make no junk.” We believe that we are all sinners, even if of varying degrees, and that Jesus died so that all of us might have those sins forgiven. We welcome everyone, irrespective of race or origin, gender or however one wishes to describe her- or his-self. We believe that God loves the unbaptized child of a poor Hindu in the slums of Calcutta as much as God loves a baptized Presbyterian in Arizona. . . And want the whole world to receive that message!
