Every Monday at Monday Night Manna we come together and provide a hot meal for anyone who finds him or herself in a time of need. Live worship music, spiritual direction, prayer and encouragement are served up in platefuls. It is a place to come out of the cold and into the warmth of a loving community of servant hearts. We are serving it up every Monday night from 6 to 7 pm in the Youth Sanctuary.

Desert Vineyard Worship Ministry exists to do two things: First and foremost we intend to make Christ the center of attention, purposefully bringing our voices and hearts to him in an offering of genuine praise for who He is and what He alone has done. Secondly, we exist to help people to have an encounter with the Holy Spirit through music. If you are passionate about Jesus and a skilled musician or singer you should consider signing up to audition for the DV worship team. There are several ways you can serve depending on your availability and skill level, each one an important expression of what we are reaching for in worship ministry. It is good to sing praise to the Lord (Psalm 147:1)... if you can do it on key and with a passionate heart then it might be good for you to do it as a lead worshiper!
Volunteer Opportunities: Monday Night Manna (Monday nights), Youth Worship team (Thursday evenings, Saturday afternoons and evenings and Sunday mornings), Midweek service (Wednesday nights), Weekend Services in Auditorium (Saturday afternoons and evenings and Sunday mornings)
Commitment: The commitment level for DV Worship ministry varies depending what venue you will be serving in and your availability. It is flexible and will be different for everyone. The hope is that you’ll be able to serve at least one service or weekend and rehearsal per month.
Requirements to Serve: Attend weekend services regularly. Have been attending for at least 3 months. Must have attended Starting Point. Must attend the Worship Team Orientation.
