Receive Free Groceries at the Free Market! Every Wednesday from 11am-2pm, shoppers can choose their own groceries from our warehouse stocked with fresh foods from major grocery stores, the LA Food Bank, and other partners. Free groceries, full choice, no strings attached.
We also provide prepared meals for those who are unable to cook for themselves or who would appreciate sharing a meal with others. Lunch is provided at the HOPE CENTER on Monday afternoons between 11am and 3pm. Dinner is provided at Monday Night Manna on Monday evenings at 6pm.
Spiritual Care (Formerly Counseling)
We call counseling Spiritual Care and we have a team of gifted, well-trained volunteers that would love to talk with you if you are in a season of need or are going through something difficult in your life. These Spiritual Care leaders will sit with you one on one to listen, pray, and support you through whatever you are going through. If you wish to receive spiritual care, please call for current pastoral and caregiver availability.
Whether you are planning a service here at Desert Vineyard or are arranging a memorial elsewhere, we are prepared to offer support and assistance. Please contact our Memorial Coordinator, Taylor Eicher, at 661-945-2777 or [email protected] to begin planning a memorial service, or click the link below for more information.
If you are in a season of crisis in your marriage, you are not alone. Sometimes one or two conversations with a pastor can help bring clarity and support, other times a few months of Spiritual Care can help you work through your difficulties together, and then sometimes your relationship will be best helped by the ongoing support of a professional therapist. We are here to help you choose a path toward healing, to recommend resources, and to pray with you along the way. Please call for an appointment with one of our pastors at 661-945-2777.
We want to help you prepare for a lifelong marriage, not just your wedding day. If you are engaged or thinking about engagement, our pre-marriage mentoring is designed to help couples share their hopes and fears with one another and discover the joys and difficulties faced in marriage as they prepare for that big commitment. If you are wishing to be married at the Desert Vineyard or by one of our pastors you must complete the pre-marriage process. For more information on this process, contact our Wedding Coordinator at 661-945-2777 or stop by to pick up a brochure with all the details.
Mental Health & Recovery
God loves us right where we are, in whatever condition we are in, but there is also hope and healing to be found in our community of believers. Perceptions is a mental health support group that provides Christ’s compassion and the encouragement of peers to individuals persevering through depression, anxiety, or mental illness. Overcomers Outreach is a Christ-centered 12-step program for those recovering from substance abuse. For more details, find Perceptions, Overcomers Outreach, and a wide variety of other groups for support, study, and connection on our GROUPS page.
We believe in the power of prayer. At each of our weekend and midweek services, the Prayer Ministry Team is available to pray with you about whatever challenge you're facing in life. We also have an intercessory prayer team that regularly prays for the needs of the church; if you would like them to include your concerns, please SUBMIT A PRAYER REQUEST. When possible, we'd also love 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.
Veterans Information Center is a group for veterans to enjoy breakfast, good company and gain the resources and help needed to navigate the complexity of VA benefits. This group is open to all interested California veterans and family members. For more information, call us at 661-945-2777 or just drop by Monday mornings at 9am (except holidays).
