PARM – Parenting Alone Resource Ministry launched Sunday, November 17th
Our new ministry focus becomes public this Sunday. PARM is creating ‘The Dove’s Nest' – a coffee bar and conversation area where everyone is invited to mingle and talk. This is a first step in moving forward to reaching out to provide support for those who parent alone. Every journey begins with that first step, so when you see the members of the PARM Team on Sunday thank them for helping to move us to where we believe God is calling us to be. Oh – and have a cup of coffee and some conversation as well.

Imagine No Malaria
Every 60 seconds, malaria claims a life in Africa. It kills an estimated 655,000 people each year, most of them children under 5 and pregnant women. Transmitted through the bite of a female anopheles mosquito, malaria is a parasite that initially causes fever, vomiting and joint pain. Left untreated, its symptoms progress to convulsions, organ failure and death. It's time to imagine a United Methodist Church that feels and responds to the vision of a world without malaria and includes us all in this mighty work. Dove joins with the Desert Southwest Conference in working towards a goal of saving 200,000 lives. More
