“We are so thankful for all the city leaders have done to help small businesses and places of worship during the COVID-19 shutdowns,” said Pastor Peter Mordh of New Life Rancho Vista Church. “For example, when they allowed churches like ours the use of Poncitlán Square for a weekend of worship and prayer, it demonstrated their commitment to prayer and their recognition of the emotional and spiritual needs in our community.”
“We understand the importance of spiritual well-being during this difficult time,” said Palmdale City Manager J.J. Murphy. “It is important that we continue to support our faith-based community groups as best as we can.”
