Welcome to the United Church of Sun City
Members of our Prayer Chain actively pray for those requesting this ministry. Please contact Susan Aurich or the church office for Prayer Chain requests.
United Church’s Senior Pastor, Rev. Brady Abel, leads worship at Sun Valley Lodge each Sunday afternoon at 1:00 p.m. Beverly Fletcher, United Church organist, plays the piano for the service. All are invited to attend this worship service in the Sun Valley Chapel.
Our Pastor leads a weekly Bible study on Thursdays at 11:00 a.m., usually on the text for preaching upcoming Sunday sermons. We take a no-holds-barred romp through the Scriptures, looking for the places they touch us or call out to us in new ways. Come every week or once in a while! The Bible study group meets in Grace Chapel.
The Men’s Fellowship group meets for breakfast at the Royal Cafe located at 10793 W. Grand Avenue in Sun City at 8 a.m. on the second and fourth Wednesday each month. The group ranges from eight to twelve men.
The United Church of Sun City offers a wide variety of opportunities to connect with others. There are men and women’s fellowship groups, a “Friendly Service” sewing group, weekly Bible studies and several outreach ministries.
The church has a long history of creative partnerships and liaisons in the community, going back to our founding of Sun Valley Lodge, today an independent not-for-profit senior residential community.
The Women's Fellowship group meets once a month at 12:00 p.m. for socializing. Attendance usually averages about five to twenty women.
We currently have fourteen Care Ministers in the Care Ministry Program. This program helps facilitate our visitation ministry to those members who are homebound, in assisted living or nursing homes or who are otherwise unable to attend church regularly.
Our "Beehive" social area is abuzz on Tuesday mornings at 9:00 a.m., as our Friendly Service sewing group breaks out the sewing machines to make baby layettes and other projects to support folks in our area. Meanwhile, our Prayer Shawl knitters weave their prayers into beautiful shawls that we offer to the sick or those who need to be carefully wrapped in the prayers of our congregation.
