ABOUT SAGUARO CANYON CHURCH:
Saguaro Canyon is an inter-generational, family-oriented church located on the eastside of Tucson,
Arizona that strives to meet the needs of people from all walks of life and stages in their faith. As of
May 2017 our body numbers about 400 with weekly Sunday attendance around 240.
We are a Bible-based church that believes in the inerrancy of scripture. Our pastors use an expository
approach to teach the Word.


Our services are designed to be inter-generational with two Sunday morning services. Children’s
Programs and Nursery (birth - 3yrs) are offered at the later service. Communion is served every Sunday
morning. Each week one of our worship teams guides this portion of our worship service through a
variety of styles ranging from hymns to modern worship music. While Nursery is offered from the
beginning of the second service, our children (pre-k & up) join us in the worship service up until
message . Children are valued at SCC. We believe they learn best about worship by example, in
community with their parents.


The mission of Saguaro Canyon Church is to connect our community to Christ . This can be broken down
as follows:
1) Connect to Christ
Create spaces for people to explore faith in Jesus, trust Him with their lives, and mature
in their faith. (Worship Gatherings, Community Groups)


2) Connect to Church
Help people discover their gifts and passions and find their fit in ministry so they can
serve the body effectively and joyfully. (Ministry to the Body)


3) Connect to Community
Equip people to share their faith with others and be an influence in their community as
they live out their faith in their sphere of influence. (Mission to our world)
