Churches have always been an integral part of the community spirit that thrives in DeSoto. The city’s first church was a “community” church. Built around 1891, Union Church was shared by Baptists, the Church of Christ, Methodists and Presbyterians until each was able to construct their own building.
Today, more than 30 churches make their home in DeSoto. The community still boasts a variety of denominations for anyone looking for a place to worship. Church members are active in all aspects of the community—from festivals to charity events. Congregations also offer programs for all ages, including youth and teen activities, marriage enrichment classes, Vacation Bible School and seminars.
