Sunday School & Small Groups

Sunday School and small groups for children, youth and adults. Come expand your faith in a small group setting, where discussion and study abound!


DFUMC children are exploring Bible stories through age-approriate curriculum, arts and crafts, and active games that grow them towards a lived-faith experience and help them discover what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ today!

Each Sunday, children are invited to bring a small offering—anything from one coin to one dollar is typical.  These coins are added together throughout the school year, and each May we choose animals to donate to Heifer International.

[DFY] - Desert Foothills Youth uses 4 Core Ministries to help us stay focused and on track to experience Fun, Meaningful Faith! We're always blessed to have parent/adult volunteers to help with a variety of things. Please let us know if you can help!

Our students are encouraged to attend worship every week!  Your presence is a blessing and encourages those around you.  
Youth are also encouraged to serve the support roles in worship - as the greeters, ushers, readers, run MediaShout, etc.    
Field trips to experience other styles of worship and religions are also part of this ministry.

Service & Missions:
We are a mission minded congregation including our youth!  Service projects include:

  • Support for local Foster Homes
  • Feed My Starving Children
  • UMOM (United Methodist Outreach Mission)
  • Habitat for Humanity
  • Flight33

We are all on this faith journey together - learning from one another and from our church leaders. Weekly Sunday school (during the school year) for middle school and Sr. High youth is at 10:30am offers current and relevant topics.  
Confirmation classes lead students to church membership and a deeper understanding and acceptance of personal faith. Classes are typically offered every other year. Contact the Pastor for more information.
