On the First Tuesday
Creating community is central to our mission at Paradise Valley United Methodist Church, and “On the First Tuesday” is a popular means of connecting with others. On the first Tuesday of every month (summers included), a light supper is served, followed by a featured speaker who leads an informal discussion on life, careers and faith. Many of our guest speakers are church members whose life stories offer insight into how many roads we take on the journey of faith. Dinner is served at 5:30 pm in the Fellowship Center, with the speaker following at 6:15 pm. Check the calendar for upcoming speakers and join us when you can.
Saguaros is a social group of interesting, happy, and friendly people, 55 years and older. The group meets once a month for lunch and an entertainment program on the third Thursday of every month, September to June, in the Fellowship Center. The entertainment program – which has included singers, dance groups, instrumentalists, authors, and speakers on a variety of topics – lasts an hour, and is followed by a potluck. Occasionally, the group takes day and overnight trips together to various places in and out of Arizona. Attendance varies each month, but it ranges from 40–80 people. First-time guests are welcome to attend free of charge. If you choose to continue with the group, you will be asked to bring a potluck dish and pay $3.00 per person each time. The nominal fee helps pay for the entertainment. If you would like to be added to the e-mail or postcard mailing list for a monthly reminder and announcement of the entertainment, e-mail the Saguaros coordinator or call the church office.
