every sunday

sunday school

During the start of our worship, all children attend the service with us. We provide a special time for intergenerational activities for children during the service, and then they proceed to Sunday School. Our Sunday School classes include preschool through kindergarten, 1st through 4th grade, and 5th grade and up. We also have Nursery care available every Sunday. Our curriculum for the school year is SHINE. Additionally, on the first Sunday of each month, all age groups come together for Desert Palm Kids Church (DPKC).

service and adventure weekends

youth trips

Every six months, we travel to the Southwest to lend a hand and discover new destinations. On a previous occasion, we went to Flagstaff to participate in a community garden project, and we've also ventured to Tucson/Nogales to gain insight into how to assist immigrants and other significant causes. We understand that families have numerous expenses to consider regarding school and extracurricular activities, so we make certain that our travels are budget-friendly, and we even provide grants if necessary.

Racial Justice


Our young ones are gearing up for visits to nearby destinations where they can delve into the rich history of racial equality movements and explore ways to contribute to them. Some of the places on the list are the Heard Museum and Phoenix Art Museum in Phoenix, along with the Indian School historic site.

Before the service was over, I knew I had found a church home for my family..

what mark has to say about desert palm

Many people who have gone church-shopping have had the dispiriting realization that congregations have different ideas about the meaning of "all are welcome."  When we arrived in Arizona, Desert Palm embraced us as newcomers to Phoenix, as the parents of a rambunctious child, and as people who believe that the Christian faith asks to be radically inclusive.  We've stayed because we've watched Desert Palm bring a spirit of extravagant welcome to people from all walks of life every Sunday, and use its time between services to stand up for education, make the case for social justice, and support those in need in our community.
