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! We're always blessed to have parent/adult volunteers to help with a variety of things. Please let us know if you can help!

Worship:
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
  • Mission trips 
  • and more...!

Learning:
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.

Fellowship & Fun:
Youth Nite
[DFY] Jr. & Sr. High youth meet Sunday 4-5:30pm (during the school year) at church unless otherwise announced (check the calendar above). Bring your own dinner - and let's get together for a good time :) We also have fun outings -- bowling, ice skating, rock gyms, pool parties, etc...
