4543 E. Dripping Springs RoadWinkelman, AZ 85192

Nestled beneath Christmas Mountain on a way called Christmas Star Route is a little church with a sign that says, "All faiths welcome." It was a gift given by spiritual messengers of God who are here "to prepare a way for the coming of the Messiah." Yet, the temple of God is not a building; it is being built within the hearts and minds of many -- of all who will receive this gift of love. And it is a gift to be given to the whole world, a gift of peace on Earth and good will to all who will receive Him in. "Open your door that we may enter, and therefore, there can be a place prepared within you, each of you, for his coming."


There's a little church in a valley on Christmas Star Route, Arizona, that needs some TLC (tender loving care). Nestled beneath the mountains on Dripping Springs Road about 27 miles south of Globe, the church was simply named a church to God because all faiths are welcome

It needs some maintenance and repairs. Any help would be appreciated -- from cutting the grass to drywall for the restroom ceiling, digging up and repairing a leaking water line, hooking up water for the kitchenette, fixing evaporative coolers on the roof, repairing a light fixture, digging up the rocks near the entrance and making a smooth walkway there, painting the eves, oiling and staining the doors, putting up a small interior wall to make a storeage space, and more. The church was built in 1982.

Here are some tasks from which you can choose:

(1) The front double doors and six French double doors need their wood frames to be preserved with oil and varnish.

(2) The eves and facia boards need painting, and possibly sanding.

(3) The evaporative coolers on the roof need maintenance and repair.

(4) The kitchen sink could be hooked up by a skilled plumber or experienced person.

(5) The roof leaked and is temporarily patched with new tar paper. But some shingles need to be nailed onto the roof after the plywood beneath is replaced where it was damaged.

We need a wise man (or woman) to volunteer to help in whatever way you'd like to do to help restore this little church building. More volunteers would be even better!

The church also an electrician to repair to an electric circuit breaker.

Even a good Spring cleaning or mopping would be so appreciated!

Anything you would like to do to help maintain this little interfaith church will be such a blessing.

It's in a beautiful valley, less than a two-hour drive from mid-Tucson. It's only 65 miles from NW Tucson (an hour-and-a-half), and 30 minutes south of Globe. It's lovely beneath the Christmas Mountains.
