Children’s Clothing Drive for Love INC. – Gently Used Spring/Sumer Clothes Newborn to 5T

2014 | by Clint | Category: Giving Opportunity,Local,Love INC

Kyle J., a Community Group

leader here at DSC and his group are collecting young childrens’ clothing this spring in order to bless families in need through our partnership with Love INC. (In the Name of Christ)

Please consider helping them on this mission to meet felt needs, and to proclaim eternal truth in the gospel.

Our Community Group is to be doing another clothing drive for Love INC to help us restock our clothing supply for the upcoming spring and summer season. We are so thankful for the generosity of the DSC body over the last year. We have been blessed with a great supply of clothes that we can use to bless those in need through Love INC. We have delivered clothes to many families and wouldn’t have been able to so without  many of you donating clothes.

During the last several months we have been able to connect with some of the families we’ve delivered to and even had a single mom come to the Christmas Store! It’s been a joy to partner with Love INC and we pray the Lord would bless the time we have with these families and that His name would be proclaimed and glorified through our interactions with them.

That brings me to the clothing drive. We are asking for gently used children’s clothes. In particular, we are looking for spring/summer clothes in sizes newborn to 5T. To make the sorting a little easier for us I ask that, if possible, you put boys clothing in one bag/box and girls clothing in another.

We will have boxes set out at the child check in area starting this Sunday and running through the end of April.

Thank you for your donations and being a large part of this ministry!

Beards for SNAP

2014 | by Clint | Category: Giving Opportunity,Global,North Africa (SNAP)

As part of our second annual SPRING for SNAP, we are trying something new this year.

Beards logo

Men, can you grow a beard?  If so, consider growing one, not in vain (or simply for vanity sake), but with a purpose toward spreading God’s glory broader and deeper among the nations!  Who knew your beard could be a grown for the glory of God!?

Here’s how it works:

  1. Get Registered this week: www.desertspringschurch.org/beards
  2. Get Pledges from friends and family by printing off this form: www.desertspringschurch.org/beards_pledge
  3. Come to the “Mob Shave” on Saturday March 29th, at DSC at 9AM for some breakfast burritos and some prayer for our Sunrise North Africa Partnership (SNAP).  Bring your razor, shaving cream, and a towel so that we can get a fresh BEFORE group photo.  If you cannot make Saturday, that’s ok, you can still participate.
  4. Grow that Beard as long as you can stand it (or until 6 months)
  5. Follow and share in the shenanigans on twitter @KeepABQbeard
  6. Get that beard measured.  And take a photo for your pledged folks.
  7. Shave it off (or into a cool design).
  8. After shaving, collect your pledged donations in person or point them to www.desertspringschurch.org/beard_pay

That’s it!  Who’s in?  Get registered!Ian beard no cream
