30th Anniversary Celebration

Sun Lakes United Methodist Church was founded 30 years ago with 25 members. Today it is a strong church providing support for hundreds of mission projects around the world, including the recent disasters in Texas and Florida. The church serves almost 1,000 members, associates, affiliates, and frequent visitors, with a budget over one million dollars.

The community is invited to join in a day of celebration for the 30th Anniversary in ministry for Sun Lakes United Methodist Church. On Sunday, October 29, Bishop Robert Hoshibata will be delivering a sermon at both the 8:15 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. worship services. The evening festivities begin at 4:30 p.m., with dinner at 5:00 p.m., finishing with a guest speaker.

We especially invite our friends in the Jewish Congregation with whom we have shared many years of shared services and celebrations.

Make your dinner reservations by calling the church office at (480) 895-8766.


Sweet Life Cafe – Sept. 7 – Oct. 12

The Sweet Life Café meets Thursdays through October 12, from 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm in Room 1. Once again we are looking at J. Ellsworth Kalas’ book “Parables from the Back Side: Bible Stories with a Twist.” For a change of pace, readers are encouraged to consider familiar parables from the perspective of minor characters. Bring your lunch and bring a friend!


 What is Christianity? Alpha Course – Sept. 17- Nov. 12

The 10-week Alpha study course began Sunday, Sept. 17, and runs from 11:30 am to 2:00 pm. The course is designed for anyone with questions about Christianity, whether you are new to faith or you’ve been a Christian since the cradle. Questions like, do dogs go to heaven? A man asked this question at an Alpha course. No one laughed, but instead took it seriously. This man decided he’d stay and find out what Christianity was all about. He stayed and later gave his life to Christ.

For more information, contact Pastor Jean or the church office (480) 895-8766.
