March 15, 2020 Worship

Drive-Thru Worship, New Time!
This week we will be offering drive-thru, contactless worship. Since we'll be facing warmer temperatures soon, we are moving it to start at 9:00 a.m.

If your last name begins with A through M please come from 9:00 to 9:30 a.m. 
 If your last name begins with N through Z please come between 9:30 and 10:00 a.m.

 
Ways to prepare:
1. For the safety of attendees and those staffing our drive-thru, please stay in your car and keep your windows rolled up the entire time. Even though we're outside the wind can blow further than 6 ft. If you'd like to leave about an inch crack open so you can hear and speak you're welcome to do that. Please turn on your vent to interior circulation. 
2.  If you would like to bring donations for our shared pantry, place donations in your trunk or on the left side of your car in the back seat so the donations can easily be taken out of your car without you getting out. Please only bring non-perishable donations, paper products, or cleaning supplies. 
3. You can text prayer requests to 480-749-7060. Unless you specify that this can be shared with the church, the Prayer Team will pray for it privately.
4. You can mail tithes and offerings, donate online, or prepare them in advance by placing them in an envelope in your trunk or on the left side of your car in the back seat so our volunteers can collect them.
 
You will be directed West through the parking lot and then you will turn around and exit towards the East. Share your much-needed smiles and waves with each other! If it's similar to last week, no one will be in their car in the parking lot more than about 5 to 10 minutes. We are taking every precaution to make sure that we are doing good social distancing of 6 feet and using gloves for donation collections.
 
If you would like to just drive through without stopping, we'll have a blessing that you can read through your car window. We're doing everything that we can to make this safer than walking through a grocery store or using a food delivery service. Use your own wisdom on whether you feel comfortable in coming. 
 
 

Online Gathering for Worship
Worship will also be available online every week on our website at www.desertfoothills.org. This week we will be sharing communion together since our change in worship.
 
As you may know, as United Methodists we believe that communion is the shared experience of the people gathering together and the mystery of Christ with us all. In these extraordinary times, our bishops and pastors have determined that our gathering will be online as we share together. 
 
You don't have to have any special elements at home. You can use bread, a cracker, a cookie, or whatever you have. We use grape juice when we're together, but you can use whatever drink you would like. Have your elements ready before you participate in our online gathering for worship.
 

Virtual Day Camp: Calling Kids, Adults, and everyone!
Each day, campers can log in and follow a day camp session, exploring topics such as Spiritual Development, Nature Exploration, STEM, Music, Art, Social/Emotional Learning, Exercise, and more. All free!

Take Some/Leave Some Donation Time
NEW - DFUMC Church & Friends Shared Pantry

 Wednesdays, 10am – Noon
We are rolling out a new idea: A DFUMC Shared Pantry Take Some/Leave Some Donation Time on Wednesdays from 10am-12pm. Stop by if you are in need of non-perishable food or sanitation items or if you have items you would be willing to share with others. To keep our volunteers safe we are limiting this pantry to our church community and close friends – please don’t advertise this on social media or publicize widely. However, if you have a friend you know of in need, please let them know.
 
Our volunteers will wear gloves, keep a safe 6-foot distance between each other, and limit shopping to one person at a time. If you are donating items, please place the items in your trunk, hatch, or back seat and stay in your car with your windows rolled up. The volunteers will remove the items from the back of your car and bring them into the church.
 
Some of the items we are asking for are the harder to find non-perishable foods like rice, beans, pasta, flour, pasta sauce, canned fruits and vegetables as well as toilet paper, paper towels, anti-bacterial wipes, hand sanitizer, rubber gloves, bleach, rubbing alcohol, etc. These items will be shared with those in our church family who are in need as well as with some of the local charities like Justa Center and Kyrene Resource Center who are in desperate need as well.  We will also be collecting smaller size toiletries specifically for Justa Center where they are running low and have had a higher number of shower requests.
 
If you just have a donation to drop off you are also welcome to come on Sunday during the Drive Thru time and drop it off then.

CHURCH MEETING ONLINE and NOT "IN PERSON"

For the safety of everyone, we request that you please limit trips inside the church building. If you have donations that you would like to drop off, please bring them during the designated Wednesday collection time or Sunday mornings during Drive Thru Worship.  This will help protect the staff and those who have to work around the facility as we do not have the resources to keep our church sanitized.
Our Church Gatherings "In-Person" are on pause until further notice. Instead, we invite you to connect with our congregation online here and on Facebook and by email.
