Desert Springs Church Elders | Welcome
Lord's Supper Service
Wednesday, October 25

New to DSC


Welcome to Desert Springs Church!
We are glad you are here and we hope you enjoy your online visit.

DSC is a church committed to 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:



Another vital element of our DNA is planting churches. Go to the About page to learn more about the church—beliefs, leadership, history, etc.

Worship Services
Come and experience a worship service with us. We meet on Sunday mornings at 9:00 AM and 10:45 AM (mid and high school meets in the Youth Room). Click here for driving directions. Please make sure to stop by our Visitors Kiosk in the foyer and on the last Sunday of the month attend the Newcomers' Reception 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.

We also come together 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.

Childcare is available on Sundays (birth - 5th grade) and on our Lord's Supper services (birth - four-year-olds).

Church Home
If you are looking for a church home, definitely the best way of knowing DSC is through our membership class called Knowing Christ, Knowing the Church (KCKC). The class will cover important elements such as who is Jesus; what is the gospel; what is the Community Groups vision; how we do mission locally and globally; what ministries surround the church; etc.

If you are interested on ways of connecting, growing, and serving, please visit the Connect, Grow, and Serve pages.

Listen to our preaching, read the blog, and browse the Resources page to get an idea of what to expect on a worship service and what is important to us.

Please contact any of our leaders or email us at info@desertspringschurch.org for prayer, questions, comments, etc.

News/Events


Texas Disaster Relief
Give Online
We are raising money for a small church in Beaumont, Texas whose worship center was heavily damaged by the hurricane. They are going to have to replace the sheetrock, carpet, pews, and musical equipment. Please pray that God encourages them during this trial and that this would lead to them growing in Christ-likeness. Donations can be made though a giving envelope marked for "Disaster Relief", or you can go to the "Give" page and select "Disaster Relief".
Missions Emphasis Week
October 22-25, 2017
Sunday, October 22 through Wednesday 25 is this year's Missions Emphasis Week. This will include a silent auction starting Sunday in the West Wing (all proceeds go towards North African Missions), other activities that same Sunday, and ending with a missions focus for the Lord's Supper and the close of the silent auction on Wednesday. Come prepared to learn, pray, and consider new ways to get involved in the spread of the gospel. If you are interested in donating an item or service to the silent auction, or would be interested in volunteering in some capacity, please contact Alicia Whitacre. Deadline for donations is Friday, October 13.
Men's Huddles
Join Us
Attention men! Now's a great time to jump into one of our two morning Huddles with both starting new studies in early October. There's a Friday morning group meeting at 6:00 AM, resuming their study on 1 and 2 Corinthians. Email crestonk@gmail.com for information on the Friday group. The Saturday morning group meets at 8:00 AM and will begin a new topic study in systematic theology. Email David Pugh for information on the Saturday group.
Why Attend a Community Group?
Join Anytime
God did not intend for us to do life on our own. God created us to live in relationship and community with other Christians. Those relationships are where we grow, are cared for, encouraged, find comfort, are exhorted, and where we can flesh out and deal with the issues of life. It's where Christ centered friendships are forged and deepened. It's where we challenge each other to live for the glory of God and not our own. It's where we study God's word and ask questions. It's where we are challenged to live and proclaim the gospel to those God brings into our lives.

For more information stop by the Community Group kiosk after either service or check out the groups map.
