Each year, in an effort to keep Jesus Christ the focus of Christmas, Desert Spring Church does Christmas a little differently. We choose a mission project to bless, one that will stretch us and keep our focus on gifts worthy of Jesus' birth.
How do we raise the money? We ask Desert Spring folks to willingly give up receiving one gift and instead to participate in the mission. And, instead of giving a gift to people who don't really need them, we ask people to give a gift to the mission project in honor of friends and family. We ask Desert Spring children if they would like to give up receiving one gift in order that those funds go to the mission.
In addition, our entire Christmas Eve offering goes to our chosen partner.
The goal of "A Different Kind of Christmas" is simple; let's make Christmas about Jesus!
