All are welcome at United Church

each Sunday at 10 am

for the worship and praise of God.

United Church of Sun City, a congregation of the United Church of Christ, has the distinction of being the first church to be established in a Del Webb retirement community. Organized in 1960, United Church has been serving Sun City and the surrounding area since at the current location of 107th Avenue and Sun City Blvd.

Today, with an atmosphere of inclusion and care and with respect for diverse theological thought, the goal of United Church is to create a church family, while nurturing individual and collective spiritual development through meaningful biblically based worship, music, education, fellowship, and involvement of members and friends. United Church strives to provide wider community service, social justice, and responsible stewardship.

Senior Pastor Rev. Brady Abel, the United Church staff, and the entire congregation extend a special invitation to everyone for Sunday worship. All are welcome!


We're a lively congregation where age is a number and life is a gift.

  • a fabulous music program
  • a varied and stimulating activities program
  • meaningful mission and creative outreach

Greetings,

I went with a group of friends to see the Rolling Stones in concert at Kansas City Arrowhead Stadium in October of 1989. The Stones started touring in England in 1963, so they had been touring for twenty-six years when I saw them. We thought they were getting old and must be near the end of their touring days. However, they just played at State Farm Stadium in Phoenix on Tuesday, May 7th of this year (I didn’t go). That means they have been touring more years since the 1989 KC concert (thirty-five years) than prior to that concert.

I like watching baseball. The sport, considered America’s favorite pastime, started in 1876. That’s 148 years of runs, hits, and errors.

This July 4th our nation will celebrate our 248th birthday. Founded in 1776, our nation has been a grand and  mostly successful experiment in democracy and freedom. However, our nation pales in comparison to other nations, like Egypt, India, and Armenia for example, in years of existence.

Celebrations occur, rightfully so, when family members, friends, or we reach milestones in terms of age. Those reaching and passing on hundred years of age are of particular significance. Hooray!

It strikes me that as Christians, along with all people of faith, we are in relationship with the One, and the only, who is eternal. Nothing or no one has been around longer. Scripture helps remind us of this idea. From the opening words of Genesis, “In the Beginning” to the assurance found in Hebrews that “While we change, God remains the same” (1:1-2), we can always give thanks and find comfort in God’s never-ending presence. That alone makes our ages old worship of the Lord worthy.

So, while the Stones keep on rolling and looking for satisfaction, we will continue to worship the One who was, is, and shall always be, the one to whom we belong.

Peace,
Pastor Brady
