Arizona Disciples,

May God’s peace and love surround you and your families during these days of fear, anxiety, and uncertainty.  As we have been asked to no longer gather in person, I was inspired by the words of Saguaro Christian Church pastor Rev. Owen Chandler in the face of all the changes:  “WE WILL STILL BE CHURCH!”  Towards that end, this webpage will outline some of the ways that we will still be church. We will continue to update this page as new information becomes available, so if your congregation has a link to share please email it with a description to Matthew Clark at mclark@azdisciples.org.
