Children & Youth Ministries

Welcome to Desert Foothills Children & Youth Ministry. We are committed to providing a safe and loving environment where our children and youth can experience Biblical truths as they grow in God's word. We look forward to seeing your family each Sunday and partnering with you to "train up the children in the way they should go!"

Due to Covid, we will resume SOAR at a later date, so stay tuned for updates.

Here is what/who we are:

All 6th -12th grade youth are invited to meet in our youth room off the worship center. 

SOAR is the middle and high school ministry of Desert Foothills Lutheran Church.  In SOAR, our young people discover the plans and purposes God has for their lives, plans that He has specifically designed for them. Every Wednesday, we will experience creativity, biblical teaching, and the opportunity to build authentic and healthy relationships. All youth parents are required to complete the attached Universal Registration Form.



Confirmation is a milestone in your child's walk with Jesus and their life of faith. They will experience unforgettable retreats, phenomenal mentorships, engaging Biblical teaching, and so much more. Over the course of the three year program, students will grow in understanding about what they believe, they will make friends that will last a lifetime, and they will continue to build upon the faith foundation that you as parents have already begun. This program is open to students entering grades 6th, 7th, 8th.
