Fellowship & Nurture
High Desert UMC offers a number of small groups and activities that help new members feel at home, while allowing all participants to use their gifts and talents in service to others (and have a good time together!)
Each month, the TLC group meets for an informal lunch out in a local restaurant; the UFO group meets to work on Un-Finished Objects in their craft baskets; and others create hand-knitted shawls to share with those who are ill or grieving in our Shawl Ministry.
Within the church, various committees meet regularly to plan fellowship events and potlucks for the congregation, care for the homebound, and organize outreach into our community through Christmas Giving Tree, donations to Haven House domestic violence shelter, and many others. In addition, many volunteers participate on committees that manage the church’s finances, oversee the facility or staff, and provide services to the community..
