our missions

Jesus commanded His disciples to make disciples of all nations and to the ends of the earth. (Matt. 28:19, Acts 1:8) Common Ground strives to support and serve our community in Sahuarita through local partnerships and missions. We've also made strives to support and send missionaries internationally to unreached people. 

local missions

  • Sahuarita Unified School District: We partner regularly with the Sahuarita Unified School District on Back-to-School Appreciation Day, Welcome Back to School Greeters, School Teacher Appreciation Banquets, Tree of Hope, and complete Beautification Projects. 
  • Town of Sahuarita: We work with The Town of Sahaurita and Ranch Sahaurita to host a family friendly Trunk or Treat section for the Town’s Spootakular Event. In addition, Common Ground links with the town to provide a float for the annual Christmas parade. 
  • Rancho Sahuarita: Throughout the year, we partner with Rancho Sahuarita in providing family friendly events for the community. We co-host movie nights, provide volunteers for Community Story Times, and work together on events for youth.
  • Tucson Homeless Ministry (22nd Street Park, Tucson): On the last Sunday of every month, volunteers from Common Ground Church serve the homeless a meal and restoring faith, hope and love to these individuals. (*CURRENTLY DOING MINISTRY IN A DIFFERENT WAY TO MEET THE NEEDS OF THE HOMELESS*)

international missions

  • International Mission Partners: CG Church is currently vetting and discovering missions opportunities where God would lead us to partner directly & personally in bringing support to spread the Gospel message around the world. We do regularly give financially as part of our yearly offerings to support the AZ SBC and mission efforts through the International Mission Board of the SBC. 
  • Soar Missions: Common Ground Church supports the Dunn Family who develops aviation mechanics and pilots for Aviation Missions taking the gospel to peoples who are totally unreached with the gospel.
  • Mexico Mission Trip 2018: Volunteers headed down to Mexico to deliver the gift boxes to Cuirim House and the Tree of Hope Gifts and the bicycles that had been donated and repaired to Iglecia Vida Nueva.

sunday worship

When you come to Common Ground Church, expect a welcoming atmosphere of friends. We want you to worship through great music and to learn about God through practical Bible teaching that will meet you wherever you are in your faith journey. We are casual, shorts and jeans are the norms. Join us this Sunday to see what God might have to say to you!
