Good Morning Palm Springs Presbyterian Church!

We hope you have received our October Sonshine Newsletter and enjoyed reading it. As a reminder, we plan to publish our Sonshine Newsletter each month, so if you have something you would like to contribute to our November issue, please contact Peggy in the office at 760-320-2769.

Your continued interest and generosity in the stewardship of our beloved church is so appreciated. Please continue to remember our financial needs during this difficult Covid time, if that is possible for you. In this way, we are able to cover the expenses that allow us to provide a worship experience in our community and to continue our mission work.

We would like to ask for very special prayers for Judy Chown (rhymes with Clown) as she recovers from surgery this week in Vancouver, WA. Judy and her husband, Steve, having been attending our church for several years, as they spend their winters here in the desert. Judy also is a valued member of our choir. May God keep you safe, Judy, during this difficult time.

Bible Study will be held on Thursday, Oct 29th, at 1:30 PM. Please watch your email for the Zoom link to attend the Bible Study session or you may contact Pastor Bruce at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

We would like to extend Happy Birthday wishes this week to a very special lady to us all, Peggy Lynn. We wish you, Peggy, a blessed day, and may God hold you in his hands for great health and happiness all year long.
