What Do I Need to Know?

Core Youth Ministries

Worship - Service - Education - Fun!
[DFY] - Desert Foothills Youth uses 4 Core Ministries to help us stay focused and on track to experience Fun, Meaningful Faith!  Core Ministry Liaisons (parents and students) help to plan and make it all happen!

Our students are encouraged to attend worship every week!  Your presence is a blessing and encourages those around you.  
5th Sunday  is a new tradtion here at Desert Foothills.  Every 5th Sunday youth serve the support roles in worship - as the greeters, ushers, and readers.  This is an excellent opportunity to serve in worship!    
Field trips to experience other styles of worship and religions are also part of this ministry as well as our annual sunrise Easter Service. 

Service & Missions:
We are a mission minded congregation!  Service projects include:
  • Support for local Foster Homes
  • 30 Hour Famine / World Vision
  • Habitat for Humanity
  • Feed My Starving Children
  • UMOM (United Methodist Outreach Mission)
  • Imagine No Malaria
  • Habitat for Humanity
  • Phoenix Rescue Mission
  • Mission trips to serve local - domestic - and international

We are all on this faith journey together - learning from one another and from our church leaders.  Weekly Sunday school for jr. high and sr. high is at 10:30am offers current and relavant topics.  
Confirmation classes lead students to church membership and a deeper understanding and acceptance of personal faith. Classes form as needed.

Fellowship & Fun:
Youth Nite
[DFY] Jr. & Sr. High youth meet Sunday 5-7pm at church unless otherwise announced (check the calendar above).  Bring your own dinner - and let's get together for a good time :)
