* Due to Covid-19, meeting in person for Worship is on hold.  You can access our YouTube channel for weekly worship services and children's messages.  Click Here!

* Like everything else in our world these days, Education at Desert Cross will look very different for a while. We're following national and local health guidelines and limiting group gatherings. That includes Worship and Education. So, how will we be Exploring Faith and Making Connections together . . . even while we're apart? By using Playlists!
Each month we'll post three Playlists designed for Children, Youth, and Adults. All of us will explore the same topic, but the Playlists will be designed for each age group. You can work your way through the Playlists at your own pace throughout the month. This month's theme is Justice.
We're posting the Playlists on the Desert Cross Faith Formation website.There are specific lists for Children, Youth and Adults.  You can receive the Playlists delivered directly to you via email by signing up to follow the faith formation website. Look for the sign-up at the bottom of the Playlist page.

Let the Children Come! Education is offered in both Tempe and Gilbert for kids ages 0 and up.

Here at Desert Cross Lutheran Church, children, youth, and family are important to us! We want to help our families live out their Baptismal promises. We believe the “passing on of faith” is done in community—there are HUGE benefits to having all generations praying, learning, and growing together.
Join us at DCLC where we will worship, serve, and learn together!

Tempe: 9:30am Worship, 10:30am Education
Gilbert:  9am Worship, 10:15am Education

Tempe:  Following worship the kids will gather in the gym at 10:30 for music and then move into multi-age stations to explore the Gospel/theme. There will be Pastor led adult forums at this time, as well as Littlest Lutherans for our parents and tots.  

Gilbert: After worship and a brief fellowship time, children will meet in the worship space for music at 10:15 and then move into multi-age stations to explore the Gospel/theme. Pastors and staff will be leading a series of studies during this time, so parents can attend education at the same time as their kids! Littlest Lutherans is offered at this same time for parents and their children under the age of 3.

**Service Sundays:  The first Sunday of specific months we do a fun, inter-generational service project together.  Click here to see the schedule and join us as we serve together!
