Get Connected

We believe that what we do within each ministry should flow purposefully out of what we value and love. Whether you are a couple or are single and love to ride your mountain bike, you'll find a place to help you experience God.

In a large church like Desert Hills Lutheran, it takes a concerted effort to make simple contacts turn into true connections. These connections are meant to help each of us grow in the Lord whether it is through service, fellowship, Bible study or prayer/worship. We establish these small groups where people become much more than just a contact to each other. Small Groups are a great way to grow in faith, practicing accountability and becoming stronger disciples for Christ.
