We are committed to providing activities for people of all ages. At High Desert we offer a wide range of activities for church members to get involved in. Below are some of our recent activities. Contact the church office to learn more about any of these activities.
The mission statement of Women With Purpose at High Desert Church is : "Love in Action." We help women in need in our community with practical items, assemble hygiene kits for United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR), support local projects for the homeless and abused, and send notes of encouragement to those who are struggling. We also enjoy our time together as we have interactive devotional and time of fellowship. Good things happen when women get together!
Women with Purpose meet the first Thursday of each month at 10:00 am in the sanctuary; come join us!
