I will never forget your precepts, for by them you have given me life.
Psalm 119:93 (New Revised Standard Version)
Christmas in July at Desert Hills Lutheran
Celebrating the Gift of Christ in Our Lives
by Sharing with Others
Thank you to all who celebrated Christmas in July with lifesaving gifts to God’s children throughout the world. This years’ annual event emphasized healthcare needs supplied by Lutheran Disaster Relief and ELCA World Hunger for those served by Lutheran hospitals, rural health clinics, and missionaries in over 77 countries. Your gifts of vaccinations, health clinic visits and supplies, essential nutrition, and more currently total $15,773.00, helping us to exceed our goal of $10,000. And it is not too late to still make a difference! Contributions to this effort can be made through August 15 by visiting dhlc.org, and clicking on the “Give” tab, choosing gifts, and providing your information. Or a check made out to DHLC with “Christmas in July” in the memo line can be put in the offering boxes or mailed to the church office.
A special thank you to the many members and friends who worked with the staff and DHLC’s Global Mission Team to share and assemble Christmas decorations, staff weekend donor tables, greet worshipers, provide Christmas music, flowers, food, art, and much more. Truly at Desert Hills, Christmas in July has been God’s Work, Our Hands!
