Christmas Services on 12/24/17
9:00 AM and 10:45 AM


At Desert Springs Church (DSC) we connect through spreading God's glory broader and deeper for the worship of Christ, in community with His people, on mission by the power of the Spirit with the gospel to the ends of the earth. Scripture directs how we do all things and the gospel fuels whatever we do.

Here is what that looks like in a chart:

Ways to Connect

  • Come to either of our worship services on Sunday mornings (9:00 AM and 10:45 AM). If you're new to DSC, please stop by the Visitors Kiosk in the foyer.

  • Fill out the Communication Card in the bulletin or simply email us at info@desertspringschurch.org for prayer, questions, comments, etc.

  • Attend the Newcomers' Reception on the last Sunday of the month held after each service in the West Wing. At the reception you will get to know some of DSC's leadership and learn more about the church.

  • Join us on the last Wednesday of the month for our church-wide dinner at 5:30 PM and the Lord's Supper service at 6:30 PM.

Christmas Eve Services
Sunday, December 24, 2017
The day of Christmas Eve (December 24) falls on a Sunday this year. Instead of doing four services in one day (two morning and two Christmas Eve), we will just be doing our usual two morning services, at 9:00 AM and 10:45 AM. However, these will have special Christmas music, including choirs. So please invite friends and family to one of these services, as you would to Christmas Eve services.
New Studies for Men's Huddles
Fridays or Saturdays
Attention men! Now's a great time to jump into one of our two morning "Huddles." There's a Friday morning group meeting at 6:00 AM, studying 2 Corinthians. For information on the Friday group email Creston Kuenzi. The Saturday morning group meets at 8:00 AM and will begin a new book study, The Gospel For Real Life by Jerry Bridges. For information on the Saturday group email David Pugh.
New DSC Community Group
Join Anytime
Asher and Brooke Griffin are leading a new Community Group. They are meeting on Thursdays from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM in the Vista del Norte neighborhood (close to DSC). For more information, including meeting address, please contact Asher Griffin.
Year-End Giving
Sunday, December 31, 2017
For income tax purposes, please note that we can only credit gifts to 2017 if they are received in the church office before the close of business on December 31, or if they are been postmarked by December 31, 2017. Also, if you moved in the last year please fill out the Communication Card with your change of address. For further questions, please contact Gayle.
New Elder Candidates
December 2017
We are glad to announce that Sandy Beauchamp and Scott Meinema have come on the elder board as elder candidates. This means that after a year in candidate status we would bring their names to the congregation for commissioning as elders. We'll keep their names before you for one month in the bulletin, and then for a month at the close of their candidacy. At any time we welcome you to offer feedback, either to commend them to us, or to express a concern.
