Desert Oasis Chapel is open and affirming.

Desert Oasis Chapel is a non-denominational Christian church that affirms the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered community as we join together in worship, prayer, and searching for God’s place in, and purpose for, your life. We proclaim the Lordship of Jesus Christ, the authority of Holy Scripture on all matters of faith and personal practice and the complete equality of all persons in the eyes of God. You are always welcome and if you have guests in from out of town, invite them to join you.

A lot of men and women are sharing that their return to church and to Christian worship is more uplifting and positive than they had imagined. “The Oasis” is a great place to meet good people and to get support and encouragement. The service, with Ken playing it sweet at the piano, begins at 10:00 a.m. at Wiefels Chapel, 690 South Vella Road in Palm Springs . Whether you’re a long-time believer, new in your faith or still seeking, we welcome you. God’s word says that God is calling out to you in love, asking but not forcing you to respond. If you’ve been hurt by the church in your past, come back and look again, the story of Jesus’ life, death and resurrection is truly the greatest love story of all time.
Plan to stay after the service for a time to gather and talk, share, get acquainted right at the same location in the Hospitality Center. Set aside a few extra minutes for this Fellowship time, it really is a great way to meet good people in a town where that can be difficult.


Our purpose is to reach out to the men and women of the Coachella Valley with hands of friendship and with the redeeming message of God’s love in the person of Jesus Christ. The particular, but not exclusive, focus of our outreach is the GLBT community, their families and those who love them. Our reach is to those who grew up in a Christian community and have felt excluded and to those who grew up never having heard the true good news of Jesus Christ’s life, teaching and sacrifice for us. Further, our purpose is to provide a safe and nurturing place for GLBT men and women to worship God just as they are while we strive to proclaim the biblical truth that accurately describes God’s acceptance of all members of our community.


Our mission is to clear away the clutter of judgment and condemnation
and to simply proclaim the life-transforming love of God that comes to us in the person of Jesus Christ.
