Our Story

First Church Tucson is a courageous church, the pioneers of the Christian Faith in the city of Tucson.  We were founded in 1879 as the first Protestant church to minister and serve the Tucson community.  We continue this call by serving the local community through Interfaith Community Services and our sister entities, such as Frontera Wesley, TMM Family Services, The INN, and Arizona Justice for Our Neighbors.  We provide local and international aid for relief efforts through the United Methodist Committee on Relief, education for students through Africa University, and many, many others.

To enable this to happen there are people and teams all across our city, the nation, and across the globe working together.
All this requires time, investment and application of the gifts God has given to each of us.

Why Give?

Giving is an act of worship, a declaration that claims your personal relationship with God.
Giving is our responsibility, so that the body of Christ, that is the church, can indeed serve others and proclaim God’s love to all in ways that we cannot do alone.
Giving is our joy, because it is a real way that we can participate in our spiritual reality because we give in faith.

And we give because we can. We provide for others, knowing that just as God provided for the Israelites in the wilderness, so too will God provide for us.

Make a Difference

We direct 30% of our contributions to the ministries of the United Methodist Church.  The United Methodist Church is a 12.6-million-strong global church that opens hearts, opens minds and open doors through active engagement with our world.  The people of The United Methodist Church are putting our faith in action by making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world, which is our church’s mission. Through the power of our connection, we are making a positive difference in more than 125 countries.
