There are nearly 14,000 children in foster care in Arizona at any given time, including hundreds in Yuma County alone. Most of these children are taken from their homes with little more than the clothes on their back. With limited funding, clothing these children can be a challenge. Desert Grace founded and hosts Jessie’s Closet to help solve this problem. For more information, visit JessiesCloset.org.
Starting in Fall 2017, we will have two soccer seasons per year. It is our desire to be have the very best recreational soccer league in the Foothills!
We host a giant Easter Egg Hunt along with a carnival-type activity alley each year, typically the Saturday before Easter. Watch for details!
Each December, we offer a Christmas event which includes activities, crafts, cookie decorating, and more all under the Christmas lights with the Nativity Scene prominent. We include visits with Santa Claus, plenty of food, and in 2016 we even saw snow! Kids of all ages (that means you too, adults!) will love this event!
There are many Foothills residents who find themselves alone at the holidays. Rather than having separate Thanksgiving feasts, everyone is invited to join us for dinner at the church. Each family brings something to share and the feast is incredible!
