  • A Different kind of christmas

    Each year, in an effort to keep Jesus Christ the focus of Christmas, Desert Spring Church does Christmas a little differently.

    In lieu of receiving a gift, we give to the selected partner. We intentionally choose ambitious projects that will stretch us, gifts worthy of Jesus' birth.

    We ask Desert Spring folks to willingly give up receiving gifts and instead to participate in the mission. And, instead of giving gifts to people who don't really need them, we ask people to give gifts in honor of friends and family by participating in the mission. We ask Desert Spring children if they would like to give up receiving one gift in order that those funds go to the mission.

    The goal of "A Different Kind of Christmas" is simple; let's make Christmas about Jesus!

    This year, we are supporting Cambodian Street Children's Ministry. 

    Our goal is to raise $50,000.

  • giving tree

    gifts for children

    volunteers needed for sorting & delivery

    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. Our 2018 Giving Tree is off to a fantastic start!

    Volunteers are needed for sorting the gifts on Sunday, Dec. 16 at 1:00pm, and then delivering the gifts to the families at 9:00am on Monday, Dec. 17.
