Pastor Ed Bonneau

My name is Ed Bonneau, Incoming Pastor of Sanctuary United Methodist Church. We meet in Marana / NW Tucson, Arizona.

It is hard for me to contain my sense of excitement in being asked to serve Sanctuary UMC as your new pastor. As an open, friendly and welcoming church you have already showed me the Spirit of Christ that dwells within you. I look forward to meeting and working with you in the coming months to expand our ministry, to share the love of Christ with those who are searching for meaning and purpose in their lives and to welcome all those who are seeking a closer relationship with God through Jesus Christ.

There may be some failures and false starts in our journey together, we are after all human, but as Christians we understand the nature and meaning of forgiveness and grace. Together we will continue to grow, to build, to accept and to change as we walk with our Lord. God calls us to be faithful stewards in all of life, and what we give to Christ is just a small portion of the wondrous grace He gives to us.

Thanks to all of you for your caring and support. I look forward with great joy to being your pastor. In the words of the Apostle Paul in Ephesians: “For this reason I never cease giving thanks to God for you when I remember you in my prayers.” Blessings upon you!

--Pastor Ed

our vision

Our vision and purpose is to be the kind of church where anyone is welcomed. If you have never stepped in a church or if it has been many years, we want to make sure you feel comfortable from the moment you step in our doors.

We strive to be the church where you feel “at home” from the moment you arrive.

We also believe that the Bible shouldn’t be something used to beat someone over the head with, but instead the stories should be inspiring and fun and exciting. Nothing says that church should be boring! It’s okay to have fun in church as you grow in your faith!

We try our hardest to live up to our mission statement: Be a vibrant and welcoming church that grows in faith, serves Christ, and shares God’s love!

Come check us out sometime and see why they call us, “The Welcoming Church.”

Get Connected

We have many groups and programs here at Sanctuary. Our hope is that you would like to "get plugged in" and go beyond a casual Sunday morning attendance.

We'd love for you to get to know more of the congregation and give us a chance to get to know you, form new relationships, and improve your relationship with God at the same time!

Here are some great ways to get "plugged in"!
