GENERATIONS DIRECTOR saguarocanyon.org ABOUT SAGUARO CANYON CHURCH: Saguaro Canyon is an inter-generational, family-oriented church located in Tucson, Arizona that strives to meet the needs of people from all walks of life and stages in their faith. 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. Each week one of our worship teams guides this portion of our worship service through a blended musical experience. 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.
