About Santa Rita Church of the Nazarene
Santa Rita Church of the Nazarene has been in existence since the first Sunday in January 2015. After much consideration, research and prayer the Arizona District of the Church of the Nazarene in conjunction with the Oro Valley Church of the Nazarene agreed to give support and encouragement in the launch of a new Nazarene church in Sahuarita/Green Valley during the early part of 2014.
The vision to plant a church in this area began with a small group fellowship of 4 couples living in Green Valley who were a part of the Oro Valley church. As the dream began to grow they presented their vision to the leadership of both the Oro Valley Nazarene church and the District. With the provision of a facility to meet in, thanks to the graciousness of the Seventh Day Adventist congregation, and the faithful support of the amazingly dedicated “core group”, the fledgling church was launched and is flourishing with the Lord’s help and blessing.
