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!

Our students are encouraged to attend worship every week!  Your presence is a blessing and encourages those around you.  
5th Sunday  is a tradtion here at Desert Foothills.  Every 5th Sunday youth serve the support roles in worship - as the greeters, ushers, readers, etc.  5th Sundays occur once a quarter during the calendar year and are an excellent opportunity to serve in worship!    
Field trips to experience other styles of worship and religions are also part of this ministry.

Service & Missions:
We are a mission minded congregation!  Service projects include:
  • Support for local Foster Homes
  • Feed My Starving Children
  • UMOM (United Methodist Outreach Mission)
  • Imagine No Malaria
  • Habitat for Humanity
  • Flight33
  • Mission trips 
  • and more...!

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 5-6:30pm 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...
