Desert Rivers Community Church has been in existence since February of 2013. We are a local church plant here in Las Cruces, NM that has the vision and drive to connect people to Christ and community. We have seen the Lord do many great things in our midst as a result of this pursuit and we hope that you’ll consider joining us on this adventure! We currently meet inside of Grace Covenant Church at 3111 N. Main. We are renting this space on Saturday evenings until we are able to make the move to our own location. We offer a free dinner each Saturday before the service, as well as childcare for babies-6th graders. We also have 4-5 small groups that meet at various times of the week and locations around town. Church planting isn’t for everyone, and there are many difficulties to overcome. However, we believe that we need to see new churches rise up to fulfill the Great Commission both locally and globally. That’s why we want to be a church on mission to someday plant other churches. To do this we need the Lord’s leading, support and growth. It’s our prayer that God would choose to use us as a river in the desert to birth a new working of the gospel in Las Cruces and around the world.
Desert Rivers Community Church exists to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever. As a result of this relationship, we endeavor to reach out to lost people, defeated believers and unaffiliated disciples in order to draw them into a vibrant spiritual environment where they can experience the saving, healing and restoring power of Jesus Christ. Our aim is to establish an atmosphere, based on God’s Word, of love, encouragement, enrichment and acceptance as we glorify and serve Christ at home and abroad. We are a Gospel-centered church in Las Cruces, NM.
