Dear Church Family,
Two significant and very joyful events will take place on the next two Sabbaths. Unfortunately, present circumstances will deprive most of us from attending both occasions. Each event will be LIVE STREAMED over the internet. You can access these by logging onto the church website; www.palmdesertoasis.com
On Sabbath, July 11, two precious souls, Debora Wilson and Dawa Ezekiel (no relation to the prophet …) will give public testimony of their faith by baptism. Board members will witness the event following the strict requirements established by the County of Riverside and the Southeastern California Conference. All worship attendees MUST wear a mask, will have their temperature checked, and keep social distancing.
After nine months of delightful experience with the Palm Desert Oasis family, this will be my last Sabbath with you. I do thank you for your gracious and loving reception.
On Sabbath, July 18, a highly expected and well-deserved event will take place. Southeastern California Conference Administrators will install Pastor Paul Savino as Sole Pastor. Again, due to present governmental requirements, just Board members will be able to personally celebrate the occasion. I feel very confident the Lord will use Pastor Paul to accomplish significant wonders in the power of the Spirit.
Most gratefully yours,
