Sunday Morning Worship: 10 a.m.


No matter who you are, or where you are in life’s journey, you’re welcome here at Desert Heritage Church (DHC). At DHC, we celebrate the diversity of God’s creation which reminds us that ALL are created in the image of God. We are a caring and welcoming community of faith that includes worship that is a blend of informal traditional and an openness to new creativity, education that stimulates our hearts and minds to action, and mission opportunities that deepen our compassion.

DHC is affiliated with the United Church of Christ and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). We blend the great traditions of these two denominations into a fabric of love for the current world. If you are looking for a deeper faith, a lively experience of God’s grace and goodness, and a powerful sense of communion and community for you and your loved ones, we hope you’ll visit us soon and often. If you come, what will you find?

  • An atmosphere of hospitality and grace nurtured by men, women, and children who understand how painful it is to feel excluded by society.
  • An openness to children and a community dedicated to helping each child grow in love.
  • A community of believers able to respect different points of view while discussing complex and difficult questions.
  • Opportunities to share your life with people of integrity and purpose who have the courage to work for justice and peace locally and globally.
  • Experiences of joy and love, laughter and playfulness, service and thanksgiving among people who believe that God’s love embraces everyone.
  • A weekly celebration at the communion table that is open to all!



DHC is an open and affirming congregation!
