The Body They May Kill…

2013 | by Clint | Category: Global

God’s Truth Abideth Still. His Kingdom is Forever!

As most have probably heard, a man (father, husband, Christian) who moved to Libya to make an impact for Christ, was shot and killed last Thursday.  You can read about it here and here.

Since he made reference to John Piper often, and how his sermons inspired him to make an impact globally for Jesus, John Piper felt compelled, and with permission wrote an article called:  “When we send a person to his death.

As we look to send out our own to North Africa, this news sobers us, but, Lord willing, it increases our resolution for the need of Jesus’ work in this part of the world, and our resolution to pray and support such efforts.  May God use us as a church to send out workers into the harvest fields.  And may the suffering of this familyto plant many seeds for the gospel that will grow into maturity, to the glory of God alone.

“The blood of he martyrs is the seed of the Church.” – Tertullian, 2nd Century AD.

Please Pray for the Christmas Stores

2013 | by Clint | Category: Christmas Store

All the gifts have been purchased, and dozens of volunteers from DSC are gearing up to execute Christmas stores on the Rez and on our own church property this coming Saturday.

Please pray that…

  • People coming to the store for help will feel the love of God in Christ being poured out on them, and that they’d be open to coming back to church on Christmas eve.
  • Christians serving at the store will be friendly and engaging, eager to make a friend and pray for them.
  • Many at the DSC store will sign up to attend the follow up “Money and Me” course being offered in early 2014.
  • God will be glorified as we try to meet a felt need in the community, praying that God will use this to help show His love, and mobilize His people to be in relationship and on a mission to see folks come to Christ.

May the love that God has for us, in that He sent His son to live, die, and resurrect to forgive us of our sin, now compel us to love others and share Jesus with them.

Christmas Store 2013 Update – Tags and Follow Up

2013 | by Clint | Category: Christmas Store

Christmas store 2013 is right around the corner.  Thanks to all that have taken tags, purchased gifts, and signed up to help!

We are a bit behind this year when it comes to tags flying off the tree.  If you haven’t yet, please grab some at the Lord’s Supper service tonight, and please remember all gifts are due unwraped back to DSC by this coming Sunday, December 8th.

Also, we still need some help with follow up after the DSC Christmas store.  Fifty or so families will come through our store, and we would like to make a phone call to each of them within a few days asking if we can pray with them, and asking if they’d like to come to the Christmas Eve service.  Maybe you can’t serve at the store on the 14th but would still like to help?  Email us at local@desertspringschurch.org to ask questions or volunteer to be a follow up person.
