Desert Hills Presbyterian Church now offering more contemporary worship service

SCOTTSDALE – Desert Hills Presbyterian Church (DHPC) has invested in significant changes in the last year.  The most dramatic change came through Mikey Moomey, The Gathering Worship Director. 

The Fellowship Center building was completely reconfigured to better accommodate a modern, more contemporary worship service now known as “The Gathering.”

Moomey joined DHPC at the end of November 2018.  His bachelor’s degree in biblical studies from Arizona Christian University has provided a strong spiritual foundation for his ministry.  His experience and leadership continues to enhance the weekly worship.

“One thing that stands out to me about DHPC is the vision.  I love it, how biblical and counter-cultural it is.  It is clear that DHPC is about living out the word of God in every way possible,” said Moomey. 

Mikey leads worship each Sunday morning at The Gathering with a team of musicians.

“Also, there is so much activity and ministry going on in so many areas.  The heart to reach and to love everyone where they’re at is evident!” he said.

The church also offers  traditional worship services in its Sanctuary Building with the Chancel Choir, occasional Hand Bell Choir, and special music led by the DHPC Traditional Music Director, Jeffrey Anthony. 

Pastor Jim Noble provides a biblical and memorable sermon to teach the Word of God, challenge thinking and apply principles to daily life, resulting in a transformed life. 

If desired, childcare is provided by trained, screened and loving folks for kids aged nursery through third grade (not available at 8:15 a.m. worship). 

Older children are welcome to stay during the worship services. Students fourth grade and older are also invited to join DHPC on Sunday afternoons for its Adventures Youth Group from 4-5:30 p.m.

The church focuses on four areas, love the Lord, keep God’s Word, love one another and be a blessing.   These areas lead DHPC to its mission statement:  More people, more like Christ. 

They welcome all ages to join them at the foot of The Boulders, 34605 N. Tom Darlington Road in Scottsdale.  Worship times during the months of June through September are 9 a.m. for Traditional Worship and 10:30 a.m. for The Gathering.  October through May the worship times are 8:15 and 9:45 a.m. for Traditional Worship and 11:10 a.m. for The Gathering.
