Waddell, Arizona is a fast-growing residential community in the West Valley of Phoenix. With such rapid growth comes the need for a greater sense of community, especially for teens and tweens. Desert Streams Lutheran Church, a diverse and welcoming worship community located in Waddell, is in the process of renovating a mobile unit on church property in order to bring it into compliance with county zoning regulations. Our vision for this space is as a vibrant and engaging youth community center, designed to offer a safe harbor of refuge and support. Included in our plans are spaces for classrooms, recreation areas and spaces for worship. We recognize the supreme importance of serving this often under-served group in our community and are dedicated to doing so with acceptance and love.
