  • Family Promise of Las Vegas

    Host Congregation

    Next host week

    August 18 - August 25, 2019

    The mission of Family Promise of Las Vegas is to offer homeless families the opportunity to achieve housing stability by providing short term shelter, meals, case management and hospitality. 

    Family Promise is a cooperative effort that addresses the needs of homeless families by utilizing resources within local congregations and the community. Families in our program receive a full complement of resources and training as they work towards their own independence and self-sufficiency.

    Desert Spring Church is a host congregation for Family Promise.

    Families entering the program first stay as the guests of congregations throughout Las Vegas. These houses of faith open their doors to provide a bed for the evening, a warm supper and cold breakfast/lunch, and the hospitality of a loving community.

    Desert Spring Church hosts homeless families in Las Vegas 3 - 4 times per year.

  • Messengers

    Senior Living Worship

    The Messengers ministry was born out of a desire to provide meaningful worship for residents of assisted living facilities who would otherwise be unable to attend worship.

    At present we have teams serving two different assisted living facilities:

    The Atria Team led by Wayne Williams on the 1st & 3rd Sundays

    The Pacifica Team led by Carolyn Wood each Sunday

    Periodically, our Youth Group participates in these services and the residents particularly love it when they are there. 

    We ask for your prayers around this ministry, both for those who lead and for those who participate. 

    If you would like to join in this special service opportunity, please fill out a form HERE.

  • The Bremer Family

    A prayer request from the Bremers:

    Would you please pray for justice and mercy to reign in this country? Please pray that God would be glorified and that the saving power of Jesus Christ would transform this nation.

    Thank you for your support, your prayers and for walking with us through it all.


  • Giving Tree

    The Giving Tree has become a tradition at Desert Spring.

    Each year, we adopt children, as well as their siblings and family, who attend the Head Start or Acelero Learning Centers in Las Vegas. We provide gifts for the children and enough holiday meal fixings for the entire family.

    In 2017, 250 children, their siblings and their families were given Christmas gifts and Holiday Meal Feasts. In 2018, we were able to support 275 people! We look forward to our best year yet in 2019.

    Thank you, Desert Spring Church, for your continued support of our Giving Tree tradition.
