Welcome to Desert Foothills Lutheran Church

Desert Foothills Lutheran Church is a warm, friendly, and caring place to worship. Our congregation and staff reflect this not only on Sundays but every day. We are a Missouri Synod Lutheran Church that is located in a very unique part of our state, where massive boulders and mountain ridges open their arms to the wide open desert.

This is a place for families as we have a thriving Preschool, in addition to various education and youth programs. The Music Ministry is filled with opportunity for those who enjoy singing, performing, and playing instruments. Our mission is “Connecting people to Jesus” and that says it all. We welcome all who wish to begin, establish or build a relationship with Jesus Christ. As we use our gifts and resources, we seek to glorify the Lord through excellence in worship, discipleship, building community and blessing others.
