First Church Tucson is a courageous church! Established in 1879 as the first Protestant church in our city, First Church Tucson continues to pave the way in creating a faith community that embraces all peoples into the grace of God.
The memorial service for Jeanne Bensema will take place on Saturday, November 25th at 11AM in the Tea House Chapel.
Thanksgiving is coming up soon! Everyone is invited to share a meal together at noon on the 23rd. The church will provide the turkey and gravy, and we ask you to bring your favorite sides and desserts.
Advent Book Study will be led by Pastor Ko on Mondays at 4:30 pm in person, and online on Thursdays at 7 pm. The book will be “Faithful” by Rev. Adam Hamilton. If you’d like to sign up for either class, please put your name down on the signup sheet on the Social Hall stage on Sunday or contact the office.
We will decorate our Christmas trees and church building for the Advent season!
For the Advent season, we will decorate the altar with Christmas poinsettias which you have purchased in honor or memory of your loved ones. After Christmas, you may take them home with you. To purchase a flower for $10 each, please fill out the form found on the Publications page or in your Sunday bulletin, then bring or mail it to the church office with your payment.
Our Digest will generally be issued on the first Tuesday of each month. If you'd like to be put on the mailing list (email or physical mail) please contact the church office.
The Inn is still in need of volunteers for hospitality shifts and for driving Inn guests. If you’d like to help out, please visit www.TheInnOfSA.org to register your interest. The organization is also accepting donations of clothing, backpacks, pre-packaged snacks, and various other items, which can be dropped off at First Church on Sunday before or after the 10AM worship service, or during office hours (Monday-Thursday 10AM-2PM).
If you have a prayer request, please contact the church office or pastor, or share it with the congregation during the Joys and Concerns segment of the Sunday worship service. We can also include your request (anonymously if you wish) in the next digest.
To make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
As a courageous community of faith, we celebrate the diversity of all God’s children, welcome everyone to share in God’s love and grace, and offer a sanctuary of hope.
Our goal is to meet the spiritual needs that First Church Tucson is uniquely equipped to fill. We aspire to minister to the university community.
While seeking to care for our aging congregation, we will invite and engage those who have never attended as well as those who have been disappointed or rejected by a faith community in the past.
We affirm and welcome all persons regardless of age, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, or gender identity into full participation, and membership.
