Pastor Ed Bonneau

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

Thanks for your interest and support of Sanctuary UMC. We are a unique congregation of individuals whose primary purpose is the share the love of Jesus with everyone we meet. And we do mean EVERONE! It matters not if you have never attended church, or have drifted away, or have felt pushed out, you are always welcome here. Our focus is on the inner spiritual life of our congregation, but we also are a church that loves to do outreach and mission.

An example is our Angel Tree project where we provide gifts for children in need. You get to pick a child, and know the name, age, clothing sizes, wish list and gender, in order to purchase a gift specifically suited to the child. This is the kind of hands on, give in love type of activity that makes us who we are as the people of Sanctuary UMC.

Come join us for worship, fellowship and learning in an environment of care and support. We laugh together, cry with each other, and share the faith and strength that makes us better individuals and better followers of The Way. Blessings to you all during this upcoming Holiday Season, and may the birth of Christ touch your heart in a special way in the New Year. Grace and peace to all.

--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.”
