We are a welcoming and inviting community church.
We embrace the evangelical doctrines emphasized by John Wesley. We believe the bible to be the inspired Word of God and a reliable rule of faith and life.
In July 2020, we were joined by a new pastor, the Rev. Patty Frick. Prior to being ordained in the United Methodist Church in 2008, Pastor Patty worked in a variety of fields, including education and communications. She holds a Master of Education degree from the University of Maryland and a Master of Divinity degree from Lancaster Theological Seminary in Pennsylvania. A resident of Oro Valley, she will be assisted in her duties at the Patagonia UMC by her husband, Andy, who is also a retired pastor.
The UMC also operates a thrift store on the grounds for the purpose of raising funds to support our various causes. Note: It is temporarily closed but will reopen when it is safe to do so.
Funds from the thrift shop sales go to support UMCOR disaster relief, Crossroads Nogales Mission, Agua Prieta church in Mexico, Campus Crusade for Christ, Tucson Metropolitan Ministries, Give Ye Them To Eat, Patagonia Food Bank, Heifer Project, Wesley Foundation, and the Kairos Prison Ministry.
A message from Pastor Patty: We look forward to welcoming friends and neighbors into the church building once the COVID-19 restrictions are lifted. In the meantime, our worship service is broadcast on KPUP, 100.5 FM, and streams live on kpup.rocks, at 10:00 am on Sundays.
